8 June: Public Event
The symposium will start with a special event, a half-day open for both symposium participants and practitioners in the field, focusing on the importance of space syntax for architectural practice. Cutting edge examples from practice will be presented as well as reflections on the subject from invited guests. Invited speaker from the side of practice is Bjarke Ingels (BIG) and from the side of theory is Bill Hillier (University College London).

The day will have the most complex architectural project in Stockholm as point of departure: Slussen, which has been subject to extensive space syntax analysis. The winners of the recent architectural competition for the area: Foster+Partners (UK) are invited together with other guests to partake in a debate on the future of architectural knowledge.

Key-note speakers
Key-note speakers are: Bill Hillier (University College London), Apostolos P. Georgopoulus (University of Minnesota) and Chris Webster (Cardiff University).

Presentation sessions
Since accepted papers will be possible to download before the start of the symposium, the organisers will in collaboration with the chairs of the different presentation sessions prepare these to create the best possible conditions for rewarding end discussions of the sessions.

Thematic seminar
A new form of event is the thematic seminar where central themes in space syntax are given a platform for deeper discussion and reflection. Academics from related fields with knowledge of space syntax are invited to help prepare these sessions. As preparation for these seminars they will present a paper on their view of space syntax and its relation to their own field, accessible at the web site before the symposium start. There will also be guests contributing to a constructive discussions, which will be held together with participants from the space syntax community.
