2nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON “SMART AND SUSTAINABLE PLANNING FOR CITIES AND REGIONS – SSPCR 2017”
This second edition of “Smart and Sustainable Planning for Cities and Regions” – SSPCR 2017 – faces the challenge of inspiring the transition of urban areas towards smarter and more sustainable places to live.
Towards this aim, planners and stakeholders are called to take over – in a multidimensional perspective – both the urgent issues related to climate change and energy efficiency, and the new potential changes introduced by cities’ digitalization and the integration of ICT in infrastructures, mobility, and social interactions.
In this scenario, planning requires a global overview and understanding of the past and current state of cities as well as a holistic approach in redirecting their future development and regeneration. Therefore, SSPCR 2017 warmly welcomes contributions coming from different research fields: urban and regional planning, environmental and social sciences, transportation, engineering and energy-related studies, as well as from the professional community. Alongside with oral, poster and virtual dissertations, cooperation and demonstration projects are also warmly invited to join SSPCR 2017, in the spirit of disseminating innovative approaches, implemented activities and achieved results.
SSPCR 2017 – a high level international communication platform for academics, researchers, professionals and decision-makers – is the right place to present your latest experiences and findings and to share your thoughts in a friendly atmosphere. Delegates will have also the opportunity to meet research and business partners and to discuss future project ideas on smart and sustainable planning.
SSPCR 2017’s main theme – articulated in thematic dimensions (i.e. sessions) which address specific topics during the duration of the conference – has the objective of providing delegates with a comprehensive overview of the field and to build up shared knowledge among researchers and professionals.
