Abstracts from ANZAPS 2010 conference
|YMCA Conference Centre, Christchurch, New Zealand|
Saturday 17 April -19 Monday April 2010
The annual meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Planning Schools will be held in Christchurch April 2010 and will be hosted by Lincoln University.
The formal activities will be scheduled from 1 pm on Saturday 17 April to 1 pm Monday 19 April 2010.
The conference venue is the YMCA Conference Centre. It is located in the heart of the city at 12 Hereford Street, opposite the Art Centre close to many accommodation options including the ones we've negotiated discounts for (15% off Hotel Off the Square).
The Global Planning Education Network (GPEAN) delegates may be also participating in the ANZAPS Christchurch conference. (Subject to confirmation, GPEAN meetings will be scheduled on Saturday 17 April in the morning and Monday 19 April in the afternoon).
We invite ANZAPS members and GPEAN delegates to submit an abstract for presentation at the 2010 ANZAPS conference. Please see instructions for submission of abstracts and deadlines at the bottom of this notice.
Papers presented by PhD candidates are especially welcome. Proposals for conference roundtable discussions on particular issues are also welcome.
Papers may focus on any of the following conference themes:
- Indigenous planning education: review and prospects
- Changing role of planning during the new millennium: implications for planning education
- Future of planning education: back to the basics?
- Preparing PhD students to become planning research scholars
- Role for planning academics in preparing and implementing Planning Institute accreditation policies (conversation began at the 2009 meeting)
- Shared teaching resources – like open courseware (conversation began at the 2008 meeting)
- Teaching spatial planning: old wine in a new bottle?
Abstracts are not limited to the suggested themes. Papers that are thought provoking, creative, and relevant and seek to stimulate participant interests are encouraged. At this stage we anticipate that speakers will be given twenty minutes to present papers including questions.
Please identify whether you will be submitting a paper for the peer review or non peer reviewed track. Those papers undergoing peer review will be published on a conference proceedings website at least two weeks prior to the conference. To keep costs down, it has been decided not to provide printed copies of the conference papers at the conference- only a booklet of abstracts will be made available to those attending.
To submit an abstract please include the following:
- paper title
- author name(s)
- contact details: email
- whether paper is to be refereed or non-refereed
- 200 word abstract
Deadline for receipt of abstracts : 18th December 2009
Abstracts should be submitted to Hamish Rennie in MS Word (or word compatible) format. Please do not submit abstracts in PDF format.
