Call For Papers

We are calling for papers for Trees, People and the Built Environment 4, the international, cross-discipline conference with a focus on urban trees and green infrastructure. It is an important academic gathering for professionals from across the world in a range of disciplines in both social and natural sciences.

In particular, the 2020 conference is seeking papers on trees and infrastructure as nations work towards how specialists in the built environment, particularly architects, planners, arboriculturists, environmentalists and engineers, can work together in a world where climate change is at the top of political, social and economic agendas.

The conference will be divided into four areas; Green Innovation in Infrastructure, Tree Value and Natural Capital, Governance and Planning, and Collaboration as the Key to Achieving Real Change.

Papers that address the conference topics in both the social and natural sciences are welcomed. These will either be:

• Original research papers presenting new work in a specific subject area

• Case Studies demonstrating research being brought through to practice.

Selected authors will join invited keynote speakers in presenting to an audience of more than 400 built and natural environment delegates from across the world. With the conference offering both local and international perspectives, papers from overseas authors will be welcomed by the selection committee.

Guidelines for Abstract Submission

Please send an abstract of not more than 300 words. All submissions must comply with the following:

• Have a title and details of authorship (including affiliation)
• Have no more than five keywords
• Identify if the submission is an original research paper or a case study
• Be submitted by email in MS Word format by 23:59 GMT, 01 September 2019.

Papers will be reviewed by members of the Conference Steering Group. Authors whose papers are then selected will be invited to present their work at the conference. Most presentations will last between 20 and 30 minutes. The authors whose papers are accepted must provide a one page executive summary of their presentation by 31 January 2020 which will be published at the end of the conference.

Authors whose papers are selected will be notified by 10 October 2019. Those authors who are not successful may be given the opportunity to present a poster at the conference or an alternative speaking opportunity.

Full papers of selected presentations and executive summary must be received by 31 January 2020 without exception, in accordance with conference guidelines for speakers.

The author or main author of selected papers will be given a complimentary place at the conference and will have their travel expenses reimbursed and accommodation and meals provided, in accordance with conference guidelines for speakers.

All abstract submissions and academic enquires should be directed to:
