During the seminar Erica will give a brief background of the project, present some initial investigations and workshops focusing on the movement and perceptions of textiles and talk about the plan for the future research. Following the presentation people are invited to take part in the discussion around the research and future plan. 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.
