Call for papers

Island Cities and

Urban Archipelagos

21-25 October 2014, Copenhagen, Denmark

Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos is an international, interdisciplinary conference exploring how island status influences urban development, common attributes of island cities worldwide, and the opportunities that islandness presents for developing urban cultures and economies. It will also consider how and why different island cities have developed in different ways.

The conference will feature talks on a variety of subjects concerning urban island culture, government, and economy. Presentations may concern cases from individual cities, but the conference as a whole will take a comparative approach to understanding what it means to be an urban island. All proposals for presentations will be subject to peer review.

The deadline for abstracts is 30 April 2014. If you wish to take advantage of early registration rates, we recommend that you submit your abstract by 31 March 2014.

Proposing a presentation.

To propose a presentation, please fill in all sections of the form to the right. Advice on filling in the form is given below. If you have difficulty using the form, e-mail the organisers at icua@islanddynamics.org for more information.

Submission Type: Select between four submission types.

Standard Presentations last a maximum of 20 minutes, followed by around 10 minutes’ audience discussion. These talks may be accompanied by PowerPoint presentations.

Diamond Presentations last precisely 7 minutes and consist of 21 slides in a PowerPoint presentation set to advance every 20 seconds. The fast-moving presentation format is particularly well suited  for image-intensive talks.

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.

Poster Presentations are a combination of text and graphics in material form that you can present to interested passers-by. This format is well suited for students.

Title & Abstract: The title and abstract of your talk must be between 150-250 words total. 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, job title, 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.

Publication: Island Dynamics will prepare a number of edited collections of papers for publication following the conference. The peer-review process for these papers is distinct from the conference abstract review process. If you might be interested in contributing a written paper for publication, please mark this box so that we can update you with the relevant information.
