Welcome to Jelke Dijkstra’s Promotion lecture, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Geology and Geotechnics.</p><h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">​Abstract</h2> <div> </div> <div>Among the most challenging attributes of geomaterials, such as soils, rocks and concrete is the large range in spatial and temporal scales involved. As a result, we are forced to push the scientific envelope in studying the fundamentals of the material response at the smallest scale (nanometre), as well as the emerging response at the engineering scale in the field (metres). Furthermore, some processes are practically instantaneous (failure), whilst other processes span decades (creep). Aided by some examples this lecture will show means to test and model geomaterials, and the geotechnical systems at the appropriate scale. These examples range from exciting new experimental techniques to obtain novel insights on the inner workings of natural clays and sands, using a combination of miniature testing and X-ray based measurement techniques, via bridging temporal scales in the modelling of the response of long-term cyclically loaded railway embankments to injecting some science in something ‘as simple’ as a pile foundation in soft soils.</div> <div> </div> Spatial Morphology Lab<p>Scaniasalen, lecture room, Kårhuset, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​The Spatial Morphology Group presents the International Spatial Morphology Lab.</p><a href="">Follow the link to register </a>or email us at: <a href=""></a><br /> <br />Spatial Morphology Group (SMoG)<br />Division of Urban Design and Planning, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering (ACE), Chalmers Technical University of Technology<br /><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/ACE/kalendarium/2018/SMoL_schedule750.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px" /><br /><br /><br /> Quingnan, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering<p></p><p></p>​Emma Quingnan is a doctoral student at the Division of Building Technology.<br /><br />Examiner and main supervisor: Professor Tang Luping, Division of Building Technology<br />Assistant supervisor: Docent Zareen Abbas<br /> + nerds: Informing Sustainable Architecture<p>BLOX Copenhagen</p><p></p><h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/ACE/kalendarium/2018/f+n_Plakat_340.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />Morning workshops:</h2> <div>Workshop 1: How to map Social Sustainability – CPTED, SAVE, POE.</div> <div>Workshop 2: How to use new digital tools in a design process.</div> <div> </div> <div>Instructors:</div> <div>Researchers at Chalmers, KADK, White, Vandkunsten, DTU.</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Afternoon seminar:</h2> <div>Informing sustainable architecture</div> <div> </div> <div>Lectures by:</div> <div>Steve Christer (Studio Granda), Elise Grosse (White), Jan Kauschen (Vandkunsten),</div> <div>Anssi Lassila (OOPEAA), Siv Helene Stangeland (Helen&amp;Hard).</div> <div> </div> <div>Sign up here: <a href=""></a></div> Salzer, Architecture and Civil Engineering<p></p><p>​Sustainability of Social Housing in the Urban Tropics - A Holistic Development Process for Bamboo-Based Construction.</p>​Corinna Salzer is PhD Student at the Division for Building Technology.<br /><br />Examiner and supervisor: Holger Wallbaum.

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.
