Sixteen papers are presented here on various aspects of urban and regional models. The case of Santiago and Caracas is detailed in a paper on the application of urban models in South America. The design of Urban growth model for strategic land use transportation studies is described, and models and theories in planning are discussed. Details are given of dynamic models for spatial interactions, as well as a dynamic simulation model for regional economic planning. Disaggregated residential location models, housing market models and duality are discussed, as well as the influence of accessibility on the spatial distribution of activities in an urban system. The appraisal, behavior and calibration aspects are described of some shopping models. The hierachical aggregation procedures for interaction data are reviewed, and the question of scale in aggregation problems is discussed.
