2017 AESOP PhD Workshop - University of Aveiro
5th to the 8th of July 2017 -

NEW DEADLINE for abstract submission: 14th of March 2017

The University of Aveiro will host the 2017 AESOP PhD Workshop, from the 5th to the 8th of July, at the city of Aveiro, in a joint endeavor with the three schools of the University of Lisbon – Tecnico, Geography and Spatial Planning Institute and the Faculty of Architecture – where the AESOP 2017 Congress will take place.

The 2017 AESOP PhD Workshop main theme Spaces of dialogue for places of dignity: challenges for planning research is inspired on the Lisbon AESOP Congress title.
In the framework of this theme, we propose to address three main topics: ‘the nature of the normative dimension of planning’; ‘spatial planning and multi-scalar complexity’; and ‘planners and the dialectics between planning and the role of the State’.

We hope that these topics can inspire and structure the debate between mentors and students about the content, methodology and aims of their PhD research projects.

PhD Workshop is an annual event for 30-40 PhD students from AESOP and non-AESOP member schools. Guided by high level academic mentors, this is an unique opportunity to share research ideas, findings and concerns in an informal atmosphere.

Next important date: 14th of March 2017, deadline for abstract submission

The University of Aveiro is delighted to organize for the second time the AESOP PhD workshop - after the successful edition of 1998 – hope to see you there!
