The second edition of the international conference on “Smart and Sustainable Planning for Cities and Regions” – SSPCR 2017. The SSPCR 2017 will take place in Bolzano (Italy) on March 22-24, 2017.
The Conference 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:
- the urgent issues related to climate change and energy efficiency,
- 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.
The deadline for abstracts submission and early bird registration is December 18, 2016.
You are invited to contribute and submit your abstracts. The abstract text must be at least 500 words long and not exceed 4,000 characters – including spaces in length.
The seven conference themes are here.
The FFUE has been invited to provide the keynote speech (read abstract). It refers to the book "Sustainable cities. Assessing the Performance and Practice of Urban Environments" (I.B. Tauris, London-New York, 2016).
