Papers at the conference are written and presented by both junior and senior members of the community (outstanding undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers and professors). The forum seeks not only to stimulate discussion among scientific community members, but also to disseminate the results of their work to practitioners and policy makers. The papers that are presented can be of a speculative or conceptual nature or can report intermediary or final results. In addition to the research presentations, two outstanding invited experts will attend and provide key note addresses during the conference. Please note that the conference is intended for the Swiss planning and research community and its collaborators only.
