Leading academic and industry experts from around the world, including Prof. Rohit Karnik from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Prof. Aleksandra Radenovic from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and Dr. A. Pacheco from Tecnalia will provide delegates with their insights on topics from nanofluidics and power generation to desalination using graphene.</div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/ace/calendar/Pages/Making-space-for-hope.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/ace/calendar/Pages/Making-space-for-hope.aspxMaking space for hope<p>Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden</p><p>Gothenburg University – Department of Conservation, will host the congress in collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg – Department of Architecture; KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm – Department of Urban Planning and Environment; and Blekinge Institute of Technology, Karlskrona – Department of Spatial Planning. This event will offer the opportunity for scholars from Europe, as well as from around the world, to contribute to the exchange of experiences, ideas and knowledge regarding planning in the 21st cent! ury, in particular in relation to the congress theme: MAKING SPACE FOR HOPE.</p><div>​Planning is one of the activities – on different levels and in different contexts – striving for better futures. We live in dark times – climate crisis, economic regression, war and conflicts of political, ethnical and religious reasons. What used to be unrecognized by traditional planning debates can be useful to respond to contemporary planning problems. In-between spaces, insurgencies and untold stories can be rethought and re-explored to energize planning debates and practice. The challenges should be considered as triggers for transformations to a sustainable future. Planning should contribute to MAKING SPACE FOR HOPE.</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Scientific and social programme</h2> <div>• Invited keynote speakers</div> <div>• 16 paper tracks</div> <div>• Round table sessions</div> <div>• Thematic group meetings</div> <div>• Mobile workshops</div> <div>• Congress dinner</div> <div>• …and more</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Important dates</h2> <div>• Call for abstract: October 2017</div> <div>• Abstract submission deadline: January 15, 2018</div> <div>• Notification abstracts: February 28, 2018</div> <div>• Early bird registration deadline: April 30, 2018</div> <div>• Full paper submission deadline: May 15, 2018</div> <div>• PhD Workshop in Karlskrona: July 5-8, 2018</div> <div>• AESOP 2018 Congress in Gothenburg: July 10-14, 2018</div> <div>• Post Congress Tour, Stockholm metropolitan region: July 15-17, 2018</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Pre-congress PhD workshop</h2> <div>The PhD workshop will be held on July 5-8, 2018 on an island in the archipelago outside Karlskrona, Sweden.

On-site is Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg, Vice President of Chalmers Anna Dubois and a representative from Wikimedia Sweden.</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Forskning/Main-logo-1-300x200.jpeg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />On Wikipedia today there are about four times as many articles about men as there are about women, and around 90 percent of all those who write on Wikipedia are men. But WikiGap makes a difference. So far, the initiative, which has been ongoing since 8 March 2018, has generated about 3,000 new articles and updates of information. <br />29 August is the time to raise remarkable and famous women in research and innovation and we hope you want to join us! You can write in your native language or English.<br /><br />You need to bring your own computer.
