Type of event:
Cities and urban regions are among the most dynamic land-use systems in the world, with dramatic consequences for the provision of ecosystem services and the livelihood of people. Planning is a multifaceted activity with extensive experience in the management of these urbanization processes. However, our understanding of planning’s contribution to shaping urban land use, form and structure is still incomplete, with serious consequences for the efficacy of urban planning and land change models.
This international conference aims to bring together the community of scholars working on planning evaluation and urban modelling. The participants are offered the opportunity to present their current research and to discuss how theoretical developments, data sources, comparative studies and modelling approaches might advance the field.
The conference is financially supported by the CONCUR project and sustained by Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL.
Registration is open. Please use this link.
The conference fee is 20 CHF, as the conference is virtual only.
Submission is closed. Further information will come shortly.
Invited were contributions that link spatial planning and land change research, specifically on the following topics:
- Planning and urban land use modelling
- Digital plan data and its uses in land change research
- The role of planning in urban land use change
- Governance of plan making and plan implementation
Dena Kasraian is Assistant Professor of Urbanism and Urban Architecture at the Department of the Built Environment, Eindhoven University of Technology. She has experience in the fields of architecture, urbanism and transportation and is interested in conducting multidisciplinary research between these fields. Her research interests include investigating long-term transport-land use interactions, determinants of travel demand and urbanization, and the role of spatial policies, using geographic information systems and quantitative spatial analysis.
Stefan Siedentop is Professor for Spatial Planning at the Technical University of Dortmund and Managing Director of Research in the ILS-Institute for Regional and Urban Development (ILS). He graduated in spatial planning at the University Dortmund and started his academic career as a research assistant and project manager at the Leibniz-Institute of Environmental and Regional Development (IÖR) in Dresden. In 2007, Stefan Siedentop was appointed as a full professor of spatial and environmental planning at the Institute of Regional Development Planning, University of Stuttgart. He headed the institute until 2012 before taking up his current position in Dortmund. His research addresses the analysis of urban spatial structure and urban change at different spatial scales as well as policies of urban growth management and sustainable land use.
Peilei Fan is a Professor of Urban & Regional Planning at Michigan State University. Focusing on urban environment, sustainability and innovation, her research has been funded mostly by NASA and NSF. She has been the Secretary General of International Association of Landscape Ecology (2019-24), a Public Intellectuals Program Fellow of the National Committee on US-China Relations (2019-20), and a Fulbright US Scholar in Taipei and Shanghai (2017-18).
Angelus Eisingeris a historian of urban planning. Since 2013 he is director of RZU (Planungsdachverband Region Zürich und Umgebung), a Zürich based think tank on spatial planning. From 2008-2013 he held the Chair of Metropolitan History and Culture at HafenCity University in Hamburg. He habilitated at the ETH Zürich and published multiple books and research papers on urban transformation and the impact of planning.
