Fourth International Conference on the Constructed Environment

4-5 October 2013

Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal

Conference Lisbon

Conference Focus

This conference will explore the forms and functions of the constructed environment during a time of dramatic and at times disruptive change. The conference is a cross-disciplinary forum which brings together researchers, teachers and practitioners to discuss the past character and future shape of the built environment. The resulting conversations weave between the theoretical and the empirical, research and application, market pragmatics and social idealism.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types). Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.

Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposals for virtual presentations may be submitted at any time, up to the start of the conference. All conference registrants (in-person and virtual) may also submit their written papers for publication in the refereed International Journal of the Constructed Environment.

Program and Events

We are working to develop a rich and distintive conference experience for all conference participants, including a diverse group of presenters, speakers, and social events. We are in the process of developing our plenary speakers and schedule, and we will keep this page updated as the program and events evolve.
