CALL FOR PAPERS
— INSTRUCTION FOR AUTHORS & FEES
Online submission of Abstracts has been extended until 24 June 2018
We invite submissions of abstracts of up to 300 words maximum proposing theory advances, case studies or mixed methods papers highlighting how the author(s) would contribute to discussions around one (or more) of the 4 conference topics and related research questions. Abstracts must explain:
- How to define resilience in relation to urban system(s)
- Why reframe theory and/or practices
- How the presented paper would contribute to bridge theory and practice
Abstracts should clearly state paper results and how these contribute to which future research.
All abstracts will be anonymized and evaluated in double-blind peer-review by generally two members of our scientific committee.
In addition, we invite Panel proposals that address one or more of the conference topics, or any other topic relevant to reframing and enhancing urban resilience implementation in line with sustainability.
Panel proposals must include a description of the panel (300 words or less), 4 to 5 abstracts (each up to 300 words maximum and following the guideline for abstract submissions as detailed above), as well as the name of a chair and a discussant. Please note that all paper abstracts will be evaluated individually in the general double-blind peer-review of the conference, with the possible outcome that only some papers submitted for a panel might eventually be accepted. Only panels with three or more accepted papers will be included in the programme. If fewer than three papers for the panel are accepted, these accepted papers will be integrated into other panels.
GUIDE FOR AUTHORS
Conference papers could be prepared and submitted by following 2 different typologies: Short or Long Papers. While both submitted contributions will be published in the book of proceedings as conference papers, the main difference between these two types of papers relies on the publication options after the conference:
Short Conference Papers
This option calls for short contributions between 1.500 and 2000 words, written in a blog post style. (characterized by a clear message accessible and interesting to a broad, transdisciplinary readership, and written in a direct, active voice – a template with specific guide for authors will be provided after abstract acceptance). Selected contributions will be published in some of the most relevant international Blogs on urban Resilience and sustainability, which have thousands of followers and readers, such as: the Urban Resilience research Network website (URNet), the UN Habitat Urban Resilience Hub’s Trends in Urban Resilience and the Association of European Planning Schools AESOP YA blog. Also, The Nature of Cities will launch a new collection of writing (with a devoted page) called Broad and Inclusive Urban Resilience, which will launch with material contributions from the conference. These options provides authors with a broad and global dissemination of their research results and case studies for a mixed pracademic and general public.
Long Conference Papers
This option calls for longer and academic oriented contributions of between 4.500 and 6.000 words. The best contributions will be selected to be part of the Special Issues in one of the scientific journals’ which will be linked to the conference and introduced in the website section proceedings.
