The RGS-IBG Annual Conference is being held in Edinburgh this year since the Olympics will be disrupting London during much of August (if not before). I'm presenting a paper on 'sustainable infrastructure' in a session titled "Planning Smarter Places" organized by Gordon MacLeod (Durham University), Rob Krueger (Worcester Polytechnic Institute, United States), and Vlad Mykhnenko (University of Birmingham).
There will be two panels and I'll be in the second one:
Planning Smarter Places (1): Assembling, Planning, Politics
Planning Smarter Places (2): Land, Infrastructure, Technology
Hopefully I'll have something more concrete to put on this website before the conference but who knows .....
