Between 10 and 13 April 2017, The Chair of Urban Development at the Department of Architecture (TUM) will host this year's edition of the international AESOP Young Academics Conference in Munich.

AESOP is the Association of European Schools of Planning, and the Young Academics conference is the largest gathering of young scholars – PhD students and PostDocs – from urban planning and other related fields in Europe, which attracts researchers from all European countries and beyond. The call for papers is now open until 15 November!

The event will be the first AESOP conference in Germany since the first annual congress in 1988, and the first ever AESOP Young Academics meeting in Germany.

The theme of the conference is „Planning and Entrepreneurship“ - these two are not frequently mentioned together. Yet, planners often see themselves as innovators on local and regional scales. At the same time, more and more technological start-up move into the realms of planning, architecture, and geo-localised data. In which way can planners react to, benefit from, or become part of this development?
