Call for Papers

EXTREME: Rethinking the Limits to Community, Architecture, and Urbanism

21-25 January 2018, Longyearbyen, Svalbard

The deadline for abstracts was 31 May 2017, but we may consider abstracts of exceptional interest until 31 July 2017.


This interdisciplinary conference explores how people and societies adapt to extreme conditions. Dense population centres, remote settlements, war and conflict, hot and cold, wet and dry, high and low: How does the extreme affect our lives?

Proposing a presentation.

To propose a presentation, fill in the form to the right.

Submission Type: Select a submission type:

Standard Presentations last a maximum of 15 minutes, followed by around 5 minutes’ audience discussion. These talks may be accompanied by PowerPoint presentations.

Organised Sessions are groups of 3-4 Standard Presentations concerning a single theme and organised by the presenters (rather than the conference’s scientific committee). To propose an organised session, the corresponding author must submit a title and abstract for the session as a whole, including the names of the authors. Each participating presenter must then submit the abstracts that form part of the Organised Session.

Abstract: The abstract of your talk must be between 150-200 words total, including title. Shorter or longer submissions may be ignored. Do not format the text using italics, bold, or underlined words, and avoid discipline-specific jargon and citations to other works.

Biographical Note: Your biographical note (maximum 100 words) should be written in complete sentences and include your research areas, academic degree, and affiliation as applicable. If the presentation has more than one author, the corresponding author should provide biographical notes for the other authors as well.
