Conference 2016

Input 2016 "e-agorà|e-aγορά for the transition toward resilient communities": the 9th International Conference on Innovation in Urban and Regional Planning will be held the 14th and 15th of September 2016 in Turin at the Castello del Valentino.

Input 2016 is jointly organized by SiTI - Higher Institute on Territorial Systems for Innovation, DIST - Interuniversity Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning of the Politecnico di Torino and Università di Torino, and ISMB - Istituto Superiore Mario Boella on the Information and Communication Technologies.

The Conference represents an opportunity to provide innovative and original contribution to the ongoing debate on the Innovation and the use of ICT in planning, management and evaluation issues and to improve the process of knowledge acquisition, by means of the development of new techniques and methods.

This Ninth Edition, starting from an open and critical view of the Smart City paradigm, aims at raising a comprehensive spectrum of new and interdependent problems showing a multidisciplinary character and extends the horizon over which the urban growth strategies and, more generally, the regional development strategies are defined.

This view not only calls into question technical or systemic issues, but heavily challenges societal and ethical aspects, assigning a new kind of responsibility to the needed research and innovation efforts.

Scholars and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions on innovative experiences within the framework of the general theme and in the light of the crosscutting technology domains.
