The Association was established in 1989 with the support of the European Union. 

Conferences are organised every two years. These biannual conferences provide a multidisciplinary forum for historians, sociologists, geographers, anthropologists, art and architectural historians, economists, planners and all others working on different aspects of urban history. 

Membership in the Association is free of charge, and is demonstrated by repeated active participation at the conferences. 

The Association supports participation of young scholars by stipends, which cover registration fees, and since 2010 it even offers mobility stipends in a limited number of justified cases. 

Up to now 10 conferences have been organised. The first one took place in Amsterdam in 1992, twenty years after this first conference we will meet in Prague. You are sincerely welcome to join us.
