The purpose of this workshop is to collect and promote the professional best practices and the cutting-edge research results related to the geospatial technologies that support the sustainable planning and development of modern, sustainable, accessible and livable cities worldwide, while the goal of the workshop is to provide space for learning, discussing and exchanging ideas about possible approaches in implementing geospatial and other technologies for resolving an increasing number of our modern cities’ issues. Cities, Technology and Planning as the three ‘keywords’ can benefit of their tight integration: the unprecedented advance in digital technologies has also innovated how data are collected and made available, allowing scholars, practitioners, planners, and policymakers to rely on a vast quantity of useful information. Today’s "Information-Explosion Era" is characterized by a large amount of data produced by human action and automated systems. The recent quests for "u-City," "Smart City", "Digital Twin City" and “15-minute city” are in line with a research towards the ‘Sustainable City’ and with the idea that technology can help in fostering such targets. New challenges are offered to scholars - geographers, engineers, planners, economists, sociologists, etc. - as well as to spatial planners - who aspire to achieve J. Gehl's ideal of humanistic city planning for a city-made-for-people model - in addressing spatial issues and a wealth of brand-new, updated data, generally created by people who are interested in geographically-related phenomena.

Integrated Mobility; Urban Mobility; Sustainable Transport Systems; Technological Innovation;MaaS; Mobility Services: Intermodal Hubs; Regional Connectivity The proposal of this workshop is connected to the e_INS Project (Ecosystem of Innovation for Next Generation Sardinia”, Spoke 8), aimed at developing a MaaS in Sardinia region as a case study. In this sense, the e.INS project will apply these new travel and mobility services to the entire transport system (urban, metropolitan, local, and regional), through a comprehensive integration both with the local system of activities and services and with new ICT technologies, which will increasingly influence the methods of access to transport services as well. Within this framework, the analysis of land use and urban planning in relation to transport systems and the offer of the multiple services available, not always adequately known and integrated, represents the first step to develop sustainable transport systems and new mobility services at different territorial scales. The workshop will host original contributions coming from scholars, institutions, entrepreneurs, policy makers, etc., interested in investigating approaches, methods, and tools to develop MaaS solutions in cities and regions to respond to the travel needs of both the local community and city-users.
