  Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Division of Computer Science)
  Department of Chemical Engineering

Aim of the Conference
Nowadays spatial, social, economic and environmental planning is taking place in a landscape
that changes rapidly from an institutional and environmental point of view. Planning affects,
and is affected by, those changes that constitute an era of social and economic transition. In
this context questions are being raised concerning the role of planning, the tools that planning
uses for spatial analysis and policy making, and the nature of planning in that transitory social,
political and natural environment.

This landscape of changes affects planning from several points of view: planning theory,
planning practice and planning education. These changes concern the area of scope, values and
means for planning analysis and planning formations. Informatics has become an indispensable
part of today?s planning schemes and practice offering the opportunity to materialise the
notion of interdiscipline and comprehensives but at the same time giving rise to the matter of
controlling personal and collective life. It is obvious that the transitory era where we plan and
we live in, imposes challenges and constraints to planning. Consequently, the main subject of
the conference, is to delve and search for the underlying forces which shape the transitory era
and also the role of planning in a society where its basic institutions and structures deny
collective action, despite the fact that it cannot exist without them.

The Structure of The Conference
The conference will run in three major tracks: (a) URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING,
these tracks will run for three consecutive days, while during the fourth day of the conference
conclusions from each one of them will be put together for the final conclusion concerning
positions and aspects of the role and nature of planning in a society where values and concepts
change rapidly and new methods for policy formations are introduced to planing in order to
control the activities and shape the relations between human, natural and built environment.
