Call for Submissions

The session shall allow researchers and practitioners to share their experiences and analysis on the use of participatory modelling and mapping for urban resource management and infrastructure planning for sustainable transformations in cities. It seeks also short presentations, including ones summarizing research or studies in process.


Description

Urban infrastructures present complex socio-technical systems, strongly influencing the urban metabolism and social, environmental and economic development. In many places, local infrastructure and resource governance is currently transforming towards more integrative and integrated approaches. Participatory methods are getting more and more part of planning processes, including participatory mapping and modelling.
The session will focus on participatory modelling and participatory mapping (like public participatory participation systems- PPGIS, crowdmapping, mapping exercises in participatory workshops) in urban resource governance and infrastructure development. Digitally and/or analogically applied, these methods allow gathering local knowledge of different stakeholders including citizens. The session shall allow researchers and practitioners to share their experiences and analysis on the use of participatory modelling and mapping for urban resource management and infrastructure planning for sustainable transformations in cities.

This session seeks short presentations e.g. summarizing research or studies in process. Experiences and analysis both from research and practice are welcome. The session provides space for exchange, questions and discussion.
Possible topics for presentation may include but are not limited to:

• Methods of participatory mapping and/or modelling
• Presentation of case studies and urban living labs that include participatory modelling/mapping
• Application of participatory mapping/modelling in local planning processes
• Participatory mapping/modelling as decision support
• Evaluation studies and critical assessment of the potentials of participatory mapping/modelling
• Visualization methods and experiences with the use of visualization techniques in local participation
• Citizen Science in urban resource governance and infrastructure development
• Data and Data governance
•…
