HDR and ECR Call for Abstracts for Queensland AECURN Urban Research Symposium

The Australasian Early Career Urban Research Network (AECURN) is seeking abstracts and registrations for its online Urban Research Symposium on Tuesday February 16th (see flyer below). 


The Symposium is a chance to share your research, learn about current issues impacting the future of our cities and meet your urban research peers (virtually at least) 


The Symposium is taking place over two half days. The first day Tuesday February 16th 9am-12pm is an opportunity for ECRs (including HDRs) to give a short (approx. 10 minute) presentation on their urban research to their peers and colleagues in a friendly atmosphere, as well as hearing from successful ECRs about their experiences. 


We are seeking abstracts for presentations of no more than 200 words. We will aim to include as many as possible in the time available. Presentations can be about any urban-related research being undertaken by ECRs (including HDRs). 


To submit an abstract and/or register to attend the event, please fill out the form here or send an email with your abstract to aecurnqld@gmail.com by 1st February 7th February.


The organising committee will be judging and taking a public vote on the presentations and the two best speakers will be invited to take part in the panel discussion on the second day, Friday 19th February, alongside Dyan Currie (Chief Planning Officer for Brisbane), Professor Susan Thompson (Head, City Wellbeing Program at UNSW) and other senior professionals, to discuss the challenges facing urban areas including COVID.  


Presentations can be about any urban-related research being undertaken by ECRs (including HDRs). 


To register to attend the ECR event and/or the discussion panel, please fill out the form here: https://forms.gle/L11CytuCDzNrCG178
