CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Urban Transitions and Transformations: Science, Synthesis and Policy

Event location: 
Taipei, Taiwan
Thursday, November 6, 2014 to Saturday, November 8, 2014

The Urbanisation and Global Environmental Change (UGEC) Project is calling for Session Proposals for the Second International Conference on Urban Transitions and Transformations: Science, Synthesis and Policy in Taipei, Taiwan, November 6-8, 2014. 

Session proposals must fit under one or more of the four conference themes:

1) Urbanisation Patterns and Processes
2) Urban Responses to Climate Change: Adaptation, Mitigation and Transformation
3) Global Environmental Change, Urban Health and Well-Being
4) Equity and Environmental Justice in Urban Areas

The conference has been structured to balance the synthesis of UGEC research with discussion on how the urbanisation and global environmental change field can best move forward including implications for policy and planning. The concepts of urban transitions and transformations are woven throughout the four themes and are intended to be incorporated in the following session formats:

• Open and Standard Sessions
• World Café
• Round Table
• Training Sessions

Suggestions for other innovative formats, from multimedia projects to art installations, are also welcome. Email a brief description of your idea to:

Registration will begin in early 2014. Deadline for session proposals extended to: December 8, 2013
