The University of Chicago's 2012 Urban Network Forum brought together sociologists, epidemiologists, psychologists, demographers, economists, and other social scientists. Participants discussed issues surrounding the relationship between social behavior and space, addressing the theoretical, methodological, and substantive questions surrounding what are broadly understood as local context effects.

The goal of this event was to identify some of the best models of processes of local contextual effects, assess how they complement each other, and advance the field through articulation and implementation of theory to integrate these with each other.

The conference was organized around four themes: theoretical perspectives, methodological perspectives, social and cultural mechanisms, and spatial and network mechanisms.
