Smart and sustainable planning is a complex interdisciplinary task sometimes not immediately clear to face, just as a cloudy dust of words. To orient delegations in this multifaceted world, the main theme of SSPCR 2017 – inspiring cities’ transition and innovation – is articulated into seven thematic dimensions, each investigating a specific topic during the conference days. The final aim of our effort is to provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of the field and to build up shared knowledge among researchers and professionals.

Here below the full list of thematic dimensions, specified by tags (i.e. keywords) in alphabetic order.
