In February 2016, the 10th annual conference of the International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights (PLPR) was hold at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern (Switzerland). After the springlike conference in Volos (Greece) in the previous year, Bern provided wonderful winter scenery to discuss current research issues under the topic “Land as a scarce resource”. The topic was even demonstrated in the venue and its surrounding. The medieval Old Town of Bern is a wonderful example of high quality urban design on a very limited amount of land – and nowadays one of the top ten most liveable cities in the world. About 160 participants from 39 different countries followed the invitation to Switzerland – tantamount to a new PLPR record.
