AESOP ANNUAL CONGRESS

Every year, usually in July, AESOP holds its Annual Congress, hosted by one of member universities. Congresses are a wide platform of exchange in the fields of research, education and practice in planning. They usually run around 20 thematic tracks and host outstanding invited speakers. Every five years AESOP co-organizes the World Planning Schools Congress gathering planning schools from all over the world. AESOP congresses are open to all, but AESOP members benefit of reduced congress fees.
