Call for abstract

‘Facing Post-Socialist Urban Heritage’

abstract submission deadline – 31 March 2021
notification of acceptance – 19 April 2021

The DOCONF series provides a comparative overview of current doctoral research in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning focusing on the urban challenges related to the physical – built and natural – environment of the post-socialist cities in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), and post-soviet Asia. Those invited include doctoral students or post-doctoral researchers (with a PhD/DLA degree earned after the 1st of January 2016) – specializing in architecture, urban design, urban planning, or landscape architecture.

The DOCONF gives the chance for young researchers to find relevant international context regarding their research topic, to present and discuss in a conference, and to publish a final full paper (15000 – 20000 signs) in the double peer-review DOCONF2021 e-proceedings, or a research poster in the DOCONF exhibition. However, DOCONF gives chance for further publication in scientific journals related to our network (30000-40000 signs). In addition, you could discover Budapest, the capital city of Hungary!

DOCONF2021 proposes six conference SESSIONS with presentations
mass housing // shrinking cities // the fifties // resilience // re-collective // leisurescapes
and a research poster: next normal session.
Every session is prepared, proofread, and moderated by three academics, members of the scientific board, who are university teachers, and most of them are doctoral supervisors 1) at the BME Department of Urban Planning and Design, Budapest;  2) at a university in another post-socialist country; 3) and in a Western country.

For abstract submission give your doctoral data, select your main session (and a second possible), write your title and  250-300 words long abstract proposal related to the general topic of the DOCONF series Facing Post-Socialist Urban Heritage, and to the special topic of your main session.
