In occasion of the 4th APRU Sustainable Cities and Landscapes Conference 2020, the host University, in collaboration with the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), promotes an online PhD Symposium organised in collaboration with the Future Cities Research Hub of the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland.
The Symposium will take place on Monday 14 and Tuesday 15 December 2020 and will be entirely organised online. Accepted PhD students will have the opportunity to attend the whole conference too and to join a Working Group based on their research focus and interest.
The Symposium will provide PhD students with opportunities to present their research work related to the topics of the APRU Sustainable Cities and Landscapes Hub (SCL) and to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A reflection on the implications of Covid-19 pandemic on their research needs to be included in the papers’ conclusion.
Students will receive high quality feedback and will have the opportunity to participate in the broader conversations of the APRU SCL Working Groups during the entire conference. This will enable doctoral candidates to interact and network with eminent researchers from the APRU SCL network.
The doctoral symposium will have the format of a two-day virtual event, with live presentations of doctoral students’ papers, feedback from the audience and a workshop session for discussion, networking and the development of a final document. Students will present this collaborative document during the conference closing plenary.
The symposium will be open to registered PhD students. APRU SCL 2020 conference participants and academic staff of the University of Auckland will be invited to participate as discussants.
