Congress Contributions: Be Part of the Congress Programme


Presentations in Track Sessions 

Planners come from all parts of the world to share their knowledge and experience, forge and renew friendships, to gain insights into cutting edge planning from around the world from colleagues in contexts both similar to and very different from their own. An ISOCARP Congress offers a unique combination of scientific content, diverse perspectives, and collegiality. The most rewarding way to be part of this is to give a Presentation of a Paper or Case Study in one of the Congress Tracks.


Research Papers + Case Study Reports 

The International Society of City and Regional Planners prides itself on a history of strong contribution to the Planning Profession, in large part through the wealth of research and documentation of case studies and planning methodologies that is shared at the annual ISOCARP World Planning Congresses. All papers submitted per the Submission Guidelines are published online in the Congress Proceedings, and ISOCARP strives to have the Congress Proceedings indexed within the Web of Science and published electronically with an International Standard Book Number (ISBN), and made available in ISOCARP's searchable paper platform following the Congress. 

 

Contribution Categories


Abstracts are welcome in the following 4 Categories, A-D:


A.  Research Paper + Track Presentation

Research Papers should represent an academic contribution to an area of planning within one of the Track topics. This option is for Congress attendees, requiring both submittal of a full Research Paper and a presentation in person at a Congress Track Session. Research Papers will be included in the Congress Proceedings and ISOCARP searchable paper platform, and published and assigned an International Standard Book Number (ISBN).

B.  Research Paper

Research Papers should represent an academic contribution to an area of planning within one of the Track topics. Research Papers can be submitted without presentation, and is ideal for those who are unable to travel to the Congress. Research Papers will be included in the Congress Proceedings and ISOCARP searchable paper platform, and published and assigned an International Standard Book Number (ISBN).

C.  Case Study +  Track Presentation

Case Study Reports contribute to Planning Practice by providing evidence and evaluation of work – a specific project, plan, policy or design – that can either be completed or still be in the implementation phase. Case Studies will be shared via short presentations at Congress Track Sessions, and the presentations will be included in the Congress Proceedings

D.  Proposal for Special Sessions + Roundtables

Propose a 90-min Special Session or Roundtable focusing on an innovative, cross-cutting, globally relevant topic that intersects with several or all Congress Tracks to form the basis for a 90-minute Special Session or Roundtable. Proposers must identify and coordinate all session speakers or facilitators, and will develop and submit a final Session outline. Discussion, audience engagement and active participation are highly encouraged, as are innovative non-traditional formats.
