Next week I will be attending at the Seventh International Conference on Informatics and Urban and Regional Planning
From 10 to 12 May 2012 the University of Cagliari will host the Seventh International Conference on Informatics and Urban and Regional Planning (INPUT 2012), organized by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Architecture (Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile, Ambientale e Architettura) of the University of Cagliari and by the Department of Agriculture (Dipartimento di Agraria) of the University of Sassari.
The general theme of INPUT 2012 is “Planning support tools: policy analysis, implementation and evaluation.”
After two decades characterized by the blooming of methods, technologies, and applications, researchers are now facing the complex issue of selecting, adapting, and integrating appropriate tools for specific stages and tasks in planning. New technologies play a prominent role in the innovation of planning theory and practice, as they affect every phase of the process: knowledge building, preliminary studies, design, decision, implementation, and monitoring.
Scholars and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions on innovative experiences within the framework of the general theme and in the light of cross-cutting technology domains, such as GIS, models, geo-visualization, and web 2.0.The Conference program is now available.
