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 Departments of Land Engineering (Dipartimenti di Ingegneria del Territorio) of the Universities of Cagliari and 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. Prospective authors can refer to this non-exclusive list of topics.
