Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos 2016. -- 07-12 March 2016, Hong Kong, University of Hong Kong

Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos 2016.
07-12 March 2016, Hong Kong, University of Hong Kong

This conference brings together researchers from across the globe to explore urban life on islands and archipelagos.

Islands are often associated with peripherality, yet they have long been important sites for the growth of cities. Physical separation from the mainland and spatial limitations can encourage the transport of products and ideas, improved defence infrastructure, construction of social capital, consolidation of political power, formation of vibrant cultures, and concentration of population. Some island cities were located on inland river islands and have since expanded far beyond their original borders while others are still strongly associated with their island cores.

Fostering dialogue between the fields of island studies and urban studies, this interdisciplinary conference will featurepresentations that explore and critique the varied connectionsbetween the urban and the insular from a diversity of perspectives on culture, planning, politics, architecture, economy, and environment in island cities worldwide. We welcome papers and panels focusing on individual casestudies as well comparative analyses and conceptual frames.

Presentations are invited to address questions such as:
• How does islandness sustain processes of urbanisation?
• How can urban planning and urban design address the challenges faced by island societies?
• Why are islands historically privileged sites for urban development?
•  How does islandness influence urban cultures?
•  What roles do island cities play in national, regional, and global frameworks and processes?
• How does urbanisation affect island society and environment?
• How does island city status affect distributions of political authority?
• How do urban archipelagos relate to their hinterlands and oceanic environments?
• How are island cultures reconstituted in (mainland) urban diasporas?
• What challenges do island environments pose to urban development and planning?
• How does the particular mobility of island populations shape the development of island cities?
• What other topics are critical to the future of island cities?

How to make a presentation.
The deadline for abstracts is 31 August 2015. However, to take advantage of early registration rates and ensure that you have time to seek funding from your institution or government, we recommend that you submit your abstract early.

Publication in Urban Island Studies.
Presenters are invited to submit written papers for consideration by the online, open access journal Urban Island Studies. Because all papers are subject to peer review, publication is not guaranteed. There is no deadline for submission, but authors who wish to make an impact on research resulting from the conference may wish to submit papers by 31 August 2015.

Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos 2016
07-12 March 2016, Hong Kong, University of Hong Kong

This is international academic conference explores the dynamics of urban areas located on islands. The concept of 'island cities' includes densely urbanised small islands and archipelagos as well as major population centres of larger islands and archipelagos. The conference will feature presentations on urban culture, politics, planning, economy, environment, and design in island cities worldwide.

The deadline for abstracts is 31 August 2015. However, to take advantage of early registration rates and ensure that you have time to seek funding from your institution or government, we recommend that you submit your abstract early.

Proposing a presentation.

Standard Presentations last a maximum of 20 minutes, followed by around 10 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 forthe 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.

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