City form and structure have long been associated with modern urban planning and yet, over recent decades, the mainstream theoretical debate on urban planning have seemed to privilege planning processes rather than planning policies, plans and outcomes. This focus has surely contributed to the growing and damaging divide between planning theory and planning practice. More recently, the urban sustainability debate has underlined the importance of the physical dimension of our cities and cityregions, through design-responsive urban regeneration strategies and urban transport policies. In this more general context, the main objective of this conference is to bring the whole debate on urban form and city structure back into planning by for example exploring recent advances on space syntax and revisiting classical disciplines such as urban morphology.
