This call is aimed at exploring more closely the potentials and parallels between processes of Spatial Planning and Urbanism/Design. In particular, how the complexity sciences can create and enhance this discourse through an examination of processes of inevitable transformation. Papers may address:
1. The relation between processes of planning, urban spatial design, urban transformation and complexity;
2. Approaches and tools to work with ongoing and inevitable urban transformation;
3. The potential of utilising multiple timelines and dynamic relationships between spatial development processes to enhance planning and design methodologies;
4. Complexity as the basis for communication and collaboration between planners, designers and policy makers.
