Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos 2017

08-12 November 2017, Funchal, Madeira


This interdisciplinary urban island studies conference brings together researchers from across the globe to explore urban life on islands and archipelagos.


The deadline for abstracts is 31 May 2017, but to ensure that you have the opportunity to seek funding from your institution or government, we recommend that you submit your abstract early.


Proposing a presentation.

To propose a presentation, fill in all sections of the form to the right. If you have difficulty using the form, e-mail convenor Adam Grydehøj (agrydehoj@islanddynamics.org).


Submission Type: Select between two submission types.

Standard Presentations last a maximum of 20 minutes, followed by around 10 minutes’ audience discussion. These talks may be accompanied by PowerPoint presentations.

Organised Sessions are groups of 3-4 Standard Presentations concerning a single theme and organised by the presenters (rather than the conference’s scientific committee). To propose an organised session, the corresponding author must submit a title and abstract for the session as a whole, including the names of the authors. Each participating presenter must then submit the abstracts that form part of the Organised Session.


Abstract: The abstract of your talk must be between 150-200 words total. Shorter or longer submissions may be ignored. Make sure to include a title for your abstract. Do not format the text using italics, bold, or underlined words, and avoid discipline-specific jargon and citations to other works.


Biographical Note: Your biographical note (maximum 100 words) should be written in complete sentences and include your research areas, academic degree, job title, and affiliation as applicable. If the presentation has more than one author, the corresponding author should provide biographical notes for the other authors as well.
