The proposed contributions may take different formats, to which specific arrangements will be dedicated:

  • Full-length original papers: conventional academic paper format (3.000 to 7.500-words papers, 20 minutes oral presentations, followed by a discussion). The papers will be grouped by the organizing committee in 90-minute sessions, with 4 to 5 participants. The organizing committee will also appoint session chairs;

  • Full sessions: participants are invited to propose full sessions broadening the themes and sub-themes of the conference, built around existing research projects and / or current debates, and engaging with recent research, exciting new approaches or theoretical interventions. Please note that this call is reserved for future chairs of sessions. Full sessions may be chaired by one or two persons affiliated in the same or two distinct institutions. Sessions composed entirely of participants from the same department of the same institution are not likely to be accepted. Graduate students are welcome as participants in the session, but sessions entirely reserved for graduate students are less likely to be accepted than groups that include senior and postdoctoral presenters as well as graduate students. Preference will be given to sessions with four contributions, although sessions of five will be considered. Full sessions will be dedicated 90 minutes' time slots in the conference program;

  • Posters: we invite early-stage researchers and / or young professionals to make a proposal that offers a brief overview of current research project (s), teaching activities or practical experiments in the field, developing knowledge around of the conference theme in the form of posters. Each poster will be the subject of a presentation of about 5 minutes per author and a discussion. These presentations will be grouped into a special 90-minute slot;

  • Training workshops: focused on topics related to professional life, such as publishing, teaching, the job market, mid-career challenges and opportunities, research and the liberal arts, and alternative / non-academic activities (examples: "Getting published", "Built heritage and digital humanities", "Improving local urban planning services with little or no means", etc.). Participation in a training workshop does not limit participation in other aspects of the conference. The training workshops are participatory and will last 90 minutes by session (duration max. 2 sessions). They may be entirely led by one person or include a panel of experts. Please note that this call is for workshop facilitators. Registration for the workshops will take place at the same time as conference registration;

  • "Lightning talks": for work that does not lend itself to presentations in the form of an academic paper or poster, we welcome proposals for short presentations (10 minutes, up to 20 slides), presenting engaging research projects and originals, educational programs or activities, field work or surveys, public administration actions and / or practical experiences in architecture, urban design and planning related to the conference theme. One or more 90-minute slots will be dedicated to these presentations in the conference program;
