3rd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON “SMART AND SUSTAINABLE PLANNING FOR CITIES AND REGIONS – SSPCR 2019”

CONFERENCE THEME

By definition, smart and sustainable planning for cities and regions strives for digital innovation and the adoption of disruptive and clean technologies, while contributing to long-term environmental protection, developing new value propositions and adding to social justice.

SSPCR 2019 specifically wants to support the ‘transposition’ of research into practice and visionary approaches into (planning) policies and tools, to be applied by local authorities and decision-makers in an urban and regional context. SSPCR 2019 explores the impact of academic research, the scaling-up and replicability opportunities of pilot projects, and the added value of local bottom-up initiatives, in relation to complex challenges posed by the smart city/region approach.

The 3rd edition of the International Conference on Smart and Sustainable Planning for Cities and Regions – SSPCR 2019 gave researchers and experts the chance to:

  • Discover how cities and regions are evolving into living labs, i.e. open innovation ecosystems
  • Explore processes and procedures of co-creation, which integrate public, private, research and civil society actors
  • Contribute to the conference’s overall aim of shaping means of increasing the quality of life in smart cities and smart regions

SSPCR 2019’s theme – unfolding in different thematic tracks which address specific topics – had the objective of providing participants with a comprehensive overview of recent and original work in the field and to build up shared knowledge among researchers, professionals, decision makers and civil society.

SSPCR warmly welcomes contributions from different research fields: urban and regional planning, environmental and social sciences, economics, transportation, engineering and energy-related studies, computer science and geomantic as well as from the professional community. Alongside oral and poster presentations, European and international urban research projects are especially invited to present their results to foster the dissemination of innovative approaches and related case examples.

SSPCR 2019 – a high-level international platform for communication between academics, researchers, professionals and decision-makers – is the right place to present your latest ideas, experiences and findings, and to share your thoughts in a friendly atmosphere. The conference gives opportunity to meet research and cooperation partners and discuss future project ideas on smart and sustainable planning of cities and regions.
