The Faculty of Environmental Sciences at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS Prague) is delighted to host the 14th AESOP Young Academic Conference that is going to be held in Prague between 30th March – 2nd April 2020; co-organized by Department of Applied Geoinformatics and Spatial Planning at CULS and AESOP YA Coordination Team. 
This conference aims to shed light on conflicts inherent in planning theory, policy and practice; revolving around the questions of how to relate the understanding of conflict changing aspects in planning process, what pathways of transformation may emerge from the tensions of conflict in terms of innovative social practices, new policy and disciplining orders, and how planning can play a significant role in turning conflicts into a transformative resource. 
The conference is a four-day event around the successful frame developed by the YA: five keynote talks, five tracks, two parallel tracks for presentation of 40-50 papers by young academics, as well as workshops a fieldtrip and a roundtable/debate 
Our goal is to provide young planning researchers and practitioners with a platform for discussion and knowledge sharing not only theoretical issues but also sharing experiences, identifying practical problems and exploring which solutions can be clarified with the assistance of the scientific community.
