The 21st International Conference on
“Science, technologies and policies to innovate spatial planning”
in conjunction with
The 2021 International Conference on Computational
Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2021)
September 13th – 16th 2021
Particularly, cities represent crucial system where often the negative impacts of different processes (both natural or anthropogenic) cumulate.
Science is required to generate knowledge useful to society to tackle and solve these impacts, but barriers still exist to knowledge exchange between knowledge generators and knowledge users. There is a dire need for additional research on how to bridge the theory-practice gap and identifying characteristics of research that enable new knowledge, techniques and policies to be concretely transferred and used not only in spatial planning but also in technical instruments.
Moreover, in the recent years a numbers of “new” planning tools had been produced in the framework of mainstream global policies: i.e. energy efficiency, climate adaptation, low carbon economy. Such tools, sometimes operates in competition with traditional urban and territorial plans, in other cases stimulated positive interactions, in some applications had been recognised as a way to overcome traditional gaps of comformative planning practices towards performance based approaches. SECAP, SEAP, Climate adaptation strategies, ITIs, Urban Resilience plan, etc. represent a system of planning tools that are currently changing cities, and territories around Europe. Such “spontaneous” (as not compulsory for territorial administrations according with national normative framework) planning tools are far from be organized in a rational framework in order to assess their contribution in generating better urban transformation, but are representative of a diffuse demand for planning toward which the innovation of planning system should be oriented.
The STP4P workshop welcomes contributions aimed at proposing novel methods and visions, theoretical approaches and case studies of innovative planning process. Focus of contributions may include (but is not limited):
– emerging science and concepts;
– new techniques to support and enable planning choices;
– innovative policies and normative instruments;
– emerging strategies to connect natural and anthropogenic processes;
– emerging urban trends to enhance the dynamic synergies between the material and immaterial data of a city (big data, IoT/IoE, sensor networks, blockchain, etc.)
– spontaneous planning on emerging instances (SECAP, SEAP, Climate adaptation strategies, ITIs, Urban Resilience plan, etc.)
Keywords: Socio-ecological systems, Spatial Plannning, Emerging science, Innovation, spatial planning, ICT, urban governance, smart cities, urban and regional growth, Cultural Heritage, urban and regional planning; natural and anthropogenic processes; Open Data, Big Data.
