The 2nd and 3rd of May 2013 the University of Aveiro, Portugal, hosted the 11th meeting AESOP's thematic group on Complexity & Planning. A committed group of planners and urban designers from Europe and North-America had an intense dialogue on the relation between the concept of self-organization and planning. How to understand this concept in a socio-spatial context? To what extent can processes of self-organization be identified in spatial systems and networks? And what are the possible insights gained for planning theory and practice?
A special word of gratitude goes to Paulo Silva for organizing the event.
