Call for Abstracts
We are currently inviting applications for inspiring, provocative and exciting oral and poster presentations. Presentation/session formats are intended to be novel and flexible, but may include standard 15 minute presentations, speed talks, or panel discussions. There will be a strong focus on interaction, dialog and synthesis running throughout the conference. Session leaders will coordinate with presenters regarding the format of presentations upon acceptance of abstracts.
We welcome, theoretical, empirical, methodological and praxis contributions with a focus on transformative change and sustainability. Contributions with an explicit explicit focus on the concept of leverage points are particularly welcome. Submissions should relate to one of the core themes of the conference, paying attention to the particular requirements of your chosen theme. The abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words and should end in a statement: “Implications for sustainability transformations: …”
- Re-structuring institutions for transformative change
- Re-connecting people and nature as a deep leverage point
- Re-thinking how we know and act in relation to sustainability transformations
- Systems thinking and complexity as tools for transformation
- Transformative research practices in sustainability science
- Emerging ideas
Contributors can submit a maximum of one abstract, as a lead author, to each theme. The same abstract cannot be submitted to more than one theme.
The deadline for submissions of abstracts has been extended to 15 July 2018. Your abstract will be subject to review by theme leaders, and you will be notified of your acceptance or rejection by 30 August 2018. Presentations may be transferred to other themes if deemed appropriate by the reviewing committee.
All abstract submissions should be via the EasyChair online abstract submission tool. You will have to create an EasyChair account to submit an abstract.
