The National Center for Smart Growth at the University of Maryland, in conjunction with the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Policy at the University College Dublin and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, is hosting a symposium on planning for states and nation-states in Dublin, Ireland October 15-16, 2012. The symposium will include paper presentations from leading scholars from the US and Europe and responses from seasoned planning practitioners at the regional, state, and national levels. Using case studies from several U.S. states and nations throughout the world, the symposium will offer fresh new information for those interested in comparative planning, European spatial planning, state planning, regional planning and intergovernmental planning relationships.
Information on the symposium and several papers from the event are now available online, at http://www.ucd.ie/gpep/events/seminarsworkshopsconferences/natplansymp2012/. Online streaming of the conference will also be available after October 15th here.
