WELCOME NOTE

In October 2015 the Irish Planning Institute (IPI) welcomes “Making Cities Work – Technology in Planning Practice” the 11th Biennial of Towns and Town Planners to Dublin. The Biennial which takes place every 2 years has been running for over 20 years in different European cities. Dublin is now the proud host of this prestigious planning event. Dublin is an innovation hub for many global technology companies, which makes it an ideal venue to bring together people who have an interest in seeing how technology can assist us in planning for the future.

The Biennial will focus on presenting and exploring new technologies in urban planning practice and will examine innovative projects where these advances are reshaping our world today. The following sub themes will be explored across the Biennial through plenary sessions and practical workshops: ICT, Urban Mobility, City Leadership and Governance, Mapping and Information Systems, and Spatial Planning & Energy. These are relevant to all of us interested in creating the smart, innovative and intelligent cities and regions of tomorrow.

The Biennial is a unique opportunity to bring technology, planning and other built environment practitioners together and we invite you to be part of this exciting event.

The Biennial takes place instead of the Irish Autumn Planning Conference for 2015
