EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENVIRONMENTAL, CULTURAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY
University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
10-12 January 2012
This year's Sustainability Conference will take place in Vancouver, Canada at the University of British Columbia, Robson Square. A satellite campus of the University of British Columbia, UBC Robson Square is located in downtown Vancouver. The largest city on Canada's west coast, Vancouver is dedicated to incorporating sustainability in all of its practices, making it the ideal city to discuss the themes of the conference.
This conference aims to develop a holistic view of sustainability, in which environmental, cultural and economic issues are inseparably interlinked. It will work in a multidisciplinary way, across diverse fields and taking varied perspectives in order to address the fundamentals of sustainability.
The conference will include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call-for-papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication, as well as access to the Journal.
Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this conference, we also encourage you to present on the conference YouTube Channel. Please select the Online Sessions link on the conference website for further details. We also invite you to subscribe to our monthly email newsletter, and subscribe to our Facebook, RSS, or Twitter feeds at http://www.SustainabilityConference.com.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 19 May 2011. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission.
