5th International Conference on 'Urban e-Planning' - IJEPR 2020 Conference, 6-7 April 2020, Lisbon, Portugal
The 5th International Conference on 'Urban e-Planning' aims to explore new developments in the fields of smart city governance and citizen e-participation in local and urban governance more specifically. Fifty years after the publication of Sherry Arnstein landmark text 'A Ladder of Citizen Participation', the Conference aims to explore recent innovations and the challenges confronting the new forms of citizen e-participation and empowerment in the field of local and urban e-governance. We seek papers that address issues related to the current digital revolution (digitization of urban planning procedures and operations; datafication of urban activities and services, among other changes) and its impact on urban governance, on citizen participation, and on key urban development issues, such as those related to climate change, to the energy transition, artificial intelligence, among others.
We invite theoretical and empirical contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following themes:
- Theme 1: Governance and Planning of Smart Cities
- Theme 2: Citizens e-Participation in Urban Planning / Ur-ban Governance
The 5th International Conference on Urban e-Planning, organized by the 'International Journal of E-Planning Research', in collaboration with the Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning – University of Lisbon, will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, 6-7 April 2020.
