M4. Integrated regional planning: new modelling tools and approaches

Social communities and their environments co-evolve in space and time, resulting in complex and dynamic interdependences. Advanced geomatics and integrated modelling provide tools and methods to better understand these spatio-temporal dynamics in order to better inform urban and regional planning. This session invites papers on advanced spatial topology and data mining techniques, associated with integrated land use, transport, social and/or economic models used to explore urban and regional development, infrastructure network interdependencies and vulnerabilities. In particular, we are welcoming papers focusing on:
