The first conference for the project “Moving StEPS. MOVING from STreet Experiments to adaptive Planned Solutions” took place on Friday, May 10, 2024, at 3:00 pm at the “Mario Carta” Aula Magna, located in Piazza d’Armi in Cagliari.
The event highlighted the findings of the scientific research project, which had the same name and was funded by the MUR, under the PRIN 2022 call.
The participation in the event granted professional training credits to members of the OIC Order of Engineers Cagliari (3 Professional Training Credits), the Order of Industrial Experts of Cagliari (3 Professional Training Credits), and the Order of Architects, Planners, Landscape Conservationists – Southern Sardinia (4 Professional Training Credits).

The leaflet is available for download here (in Italian) and here (in English).

The need for a paradigm shift towards sustainable mobility to reduce car dependency in favour of active mobility is well established in existing literature as well as in the main institutional and political agendas. As urban environments and mobility networks have become increasingly complex and dynamic, specific schemes and policies are needed.

The workshop STEPS_2024 focuses on the emerging topic of street experiments to support the transition towards adaptive planned approaches for a durable redesign and redevelopment of residual urban mobility spaces into social spaces. The aim is to address this issue from different and multidisciplinary points of view, involving urban planning and mobility, design and social sciences, traffic simulation, but also the problem modeling and the optimal solution searching by means of mathematical tools.

The purpose of the workshop is to enhance discussions on the criteria and applications, methodologies and tools useful for moving from bottom-up, temporary, tactical urbanism and street experiments to durable transformations and adaptive planned solutions in the reorganisation of the street space to boost the liveability and accessibility of urban spaces.

Focusing on the redesign of “streets for cars” into “streets for people”, this workshop invites discussions, critical exploration, methodologies, and tools (but is not limited) to the following issues:

1. Analysis of spatial conditions necessary for design and creation of strategies and measures to promote walkability and social activities in urban spaces.
2. Tactical urbanism, street experiments and street redesign typologies as tools to reclaim spaces for active mobility and social interaction in cities.
3. Planning, designing and regulatory criteria for adaptive and durable transformations of residual road spaces into social spaces.
4. GIS-based models, scenario analysis, survey applications, as well as their integrations with social sciences methods to assess street redesign interventions.
5. Mathematical modelling of pedestrian and traffic dynamics.
6. Numerical methods and optimisation algorithms for the investigation of plan and design.
7. Static and dynamic traffic simulation models and calibration for vehicular and pedestrian modelling.
8. Technological tools and advanced automation techniques for detection of movements.

Given the focus of the Conference on Computational Science issues, the workshop STEPS 2024 welcomes contributions on theoretical and computational aspects, proposals and applications from a wide variety of scholars on the proposed issues. Civil and Environmental Engineers, Architects, Urban and Regional Planners, Mathematicians, Geographers, GIS experts, among others are welcome to contribute.


Each paper will be independently reviewed by 3 programme committee members. Their individual scores will be evaluated by a small sub-committee and result in one of the following final decisions: accepted, accepted on the condition that suggestions for improvement will be incorporated, or rejected. Notification of this decision will take place on May 2024.

Individuals and groups should submit complete papers (12 to 18 pages).
Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volumes
