Call for Abstracts, 2013 CRSA/ACRS Virtual Conference

CRSA/ACRS Second Virtual Conference

Active period 3rd-16th December, 2013

The Canadian Regional Science Association / Association canadienne des sciences régionales seeks abstracts in English and French for its first annual virtual conference.

What is a virtual conference? Much as at a conventional conference, all participants will view presentations by their colleagues on some aspect of regional science research. However, in the virtual conference it is not necessary for participants to assemble in one place. Instead, all presentations will be recorded in advance and posted to a conference web site. Over the active period from 21st November to 16th December 2013, the presentations will be available for viewing at any time. Viewers can ask questions and make comments, which will be posted to the conference web site along with responses from the authors. During the second week of the active period there will be “live” discussion sessions where paper presenters and other participants interact in real time.

Abstracts in all areas of regional science are welcome, but presentations on the following conference themes are especially encouraged:

  • Regional Economic Development Policy
  • Transportation Planning
  • Environmental Issues and Development
  • Spatial Economic Analysis

N.B. Students (graduate and undergraduate) are especially encouraged to submit abstracts. There will be a student paper competition with a prize of $500 for the best presentation (the author must be currently registered as an undergraduate or graduate student).

Participants are also encouraged to organize sessions of 3 to 5 papers on topics of interest to regional scientists. If you would like to organize a session contact David W. Edgington at David.Edgington@ubc.ca.

To submit an abstract, click the link below. After your abstract has been received we will contact you to explain how to record your presentation online. The only software you will needed is Adobe Flash Player (free download) and the only equipment you will need is a computer with a microphone and web camera (most laptops include both, or you can use an external microphone and camera).

The critical dates for paper presenters are the following:

  • Final Date for Abstracts: 18th October, 2013

  • Final Date to Submit Recorded Presentations: 15th November, 2013

There is no registration fee for the 2013 CRSA/ACRS Virtual Conference.
