EDRA50Brooklyn: Sustainable Urban Environments – May 22-26, 2019


A symposium submission organizes a group of three to five papers on a theme as a forum for emerging conceptual and methodological issues or a critical discussion of exploratory research and work in progress. Symposia submissions that include full papers will be reviewed and considered for publication in the proceedings. The discussion moderator must be able to assure a professional level of discourse. Sessions should include time for audience questions and comments.


  • The submitter must provide an abstract describing the purpose and goal of the symposium, as well as abstracts and/or full papers for each presentation.
  • Group and individual abstracts should be limited to 300 words.
  • Full paper submissions as part of a symposium should follow guidelines for individual paper submissions noted above.
  • Four learning objectives are required.


A workshop submission may be designed to collaboratively explore a particular research or practice construct; or discuss a particular advanced design, method or practice concept. Workshops should be considered as interactive sessions and therefore should limit time spent in formal presentations and encourage interaction and discussion among organizers and audience.


  • The workshop organizer must provide an abstract describing the purpose, goal and format of the workshop.
  • Workshop summary abstracts should be limited to 500 words.
  • Participating workshop presenters should also be identified.
  • Four learning objectives are required.

Practitioner/Researcher Collaborations

Collaborative presentation by both a researcher and practitioner (or a team where they are represented) which describes the place, project, research method and outcomes is essential to this session category.
