Conference on Interdisciplinarity in Global Contexts

The theme of the conference will be ‘Interdisciplinarity in Global Contexts’. Since a defining feature of interdisciplinarity is not to abstract or isolate problems but rather to approach them in their real-world contexts, this conference theme asks participants to consider the global and local contexts of interdisciplinary education and research.

You are invited to send in your proposal at www.aisconference2019.nl/callforproposal. We are especially looking for proposals that can start a debate, encourage audience involvement and a lively dialogue with all participants.

Join us for this next edition from 24-26 October 2019, which will be a great opportunity to share your experiences with interdisciplinary academics from all over the world, all bringing their own backgrounds and expertise.

TRIALOG conference 2019 “Whose knowledge counts? The meaning of co-productive processes for urban development and urban research”

Current scientific discourses on co-production of knowledge in urban development are centred around three arenas: A) the sustainability discourse which promotes a transdisciplinary approach in urban research; B) development studies that review forms of co-production of services and knowledge for empowerment and C) discourses in planning theory which partly acknowledge and partly criticize participation in planning, however move towards discussing means of co-production. All three strands take the reflection on the city or urban development processes as their starting point and have developed their sets of methods. 

The conference seeks to interrogate these three strands and attempts to provoke a dialog between diverse cases. The contributions will be aligned in comparative approaches in the format of a panel discussion. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to submit abstracts in relation to the following themes. We particularly welcome submissions from practitioners and from transdisciplinary teams.

Themes

A) Co-production of knowledge in transdisciplinary urban research

B) Co-production of knowledge in urban development 

C) Co-production or co-optation?

Costs: No registration fee accompanies attendance of the conference.

Transformationstagung "Du.bist.Transformation!"

Transformation in Städten und auf dem Land, in Betrieben und Büros

Jede Einzelne kann etwas in der Transformation tun: in den Städten, auf dem Land, in der Arbeit, als politische Aktivistin und in den Medien, im Lebensstil. Darum geht es in dieser Tagung. Aktiv werden. Ab jetzt. Nicht erst ab morgen.

Die Umbrüche haben begonnen. Es geht darum, voranzugehen, zu erproben, auszuloten was möglich ist, um neues möglich zu machen. Wie kann es gelingen, gemeinsam die Nichtnachhaltigkeit hinter uns zu lassen und Soziales und Ökologisches zusammenzubringen?

In der Tutzinger Transformations-Tagung möchten wir Menschen zusammenbringen, die an der sozial-ökologischen Transformation hin zu  einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung interessiert oder auch in dieser Richtung bereits unterwegs sind. Zum Austausch und gemeinsamen In-Bewegung-Kommen laden wir herzlich ein!

3rd International Land Use Symposium on "Land use changes: Trends and projections"

The organizing committee welcomes the submission of original contributions with the goal of advancing our understanding of land use and land cover (LULC) changes. Model-driven analysis and visualization of LULC changes provide basic information for good and meaningful decisions. The demands on the quality and availability of spatial data and information services are constantly increasing, and innovative geoinformation technologies and the processing of large amounts of data (Big Data) lead to new challenges. Contributions may be theoretical, methodological, or applied in nature.

Research may address - but is not limited to - the following topics:

  • Land Use and Land Cover Change Observations
  • Metropolization: Challenges and Risks
  • Drivers, Mechanisms, Tools
  • Varia: This topic contains free contributions whose topical focus is indirectly related

Fachkonferenz „Mobilität - Erreichbarkeit - Ländliche Räume“

Bislang erfolgt die Verkehrs- und Mobilitätsforschung weitgehend getrennt von der Erreichbarkeitsforschung und isoliert vom politischen und planerischen Gleichwertigkeitsdiskurs. Mit dieser Fachkonferenz „Mobilität - Erreichbarkeit - Ländliche Räume ... und die Frage nach der Gleichwertigkeit der Lebensverhältnisse“ möchten wir Wissenschaftler*innen, Planer*innen und Entscheidungsträger*innen zusammenbringen, die sich mit Themen aus den Bereichen räumliche Mobilität und Erreichbarkeit befassen, besonders in ländlichen Räumen.
