Conference themes

Sessions, talks and posters are welcome on a wide variety of topics including but not restricted to the following:

 


 

Session proposals

It's important to provide the following information to enable the conference planning committee to properly evaluate your proposal:

  1. Date of proposal
  2. Working title of the session
  3. Proposer(s) with affiliation(s), and contact data (e-mail and phone number, including international dialling code) for the person serving as the contact point
  4. Names, affiliations and contact details of the presenters
  5. An abstract of 250 words (see below)
  6. Any special requirements (e.g. equipment, room type)
  7. Requirements in terms of chairing, session moderation, panel discussion and other forms of participant engagement
  8. Proposed introductory talks

 

The abstract should include:

  • essential background information
  • the scientific and applied questions to be addressed
  • objectives of the session
  • proposed format for the session
  • to whom is the session relevant and how? (e.g. how could it benefit policy development, urban planning, biodiversity, human health and wellbeing, etc.?)
  • planned outcomes; it is also advisable to indicate the links with the overall themes of the conference.

 

Notes:

  • All proposals will be reviewed, but we cannot guarantee to include all proposed sessions
  • Since we are also inviting contributions from individual speakers, we may include other relevant speakers in your session.


 

Talks

We invite contributions from individual speakers. Accepted contributions will be organised appropriately by the conference organisers. To offer a talk, please provide the following information:

  1. Date of proposal
  2. Working title of talk

  • to whom is your talk relevant and how? (e.g. how could it benefit policy development, urban planning, biodiversity, human health and wellbeing, etc.?)

 

Notes:

  • Although all offered talks will be reviewed, we cannot guarantee to include them all.

Although we are still working on the details, it is likely that we will create opportunities for people displaying posters to talk about them briefly, in an informal session. To offer a poster, please provide the following information:
