HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE.
It is the start of another year and AECURN is very much looking forward to getting involved in some of the key urban research conferences happening across Australasia. First up, we have the ECOCITY World Summit Conference to be held in Melbourne from July 12 – 14 2017. This conference will address a number of unprecedented ecological, economic and social challenges and opportunities facing the world’s cities. It will bring together scholars and practitioners from across the world to discuss these issues together and there is already strong support for the conference from a range of international associations and Australian governmental organisations.
The conference offers a fantastic network opportunity for ECRs and PhD candidates researching the urban disciplines and who are looking to engage with scholars and practitioners. AECURN is currently discussing what it can do for it’s members at this conference- so please stay tuned for event details. Updates will be posted on this website, as well as AECURN’s social media sites (FB and twitter).
Please consider submitting papers and/or presentations for consideration through the website call for contributions that is closing this week on Friday 17th February 2017. Early bird savings are also available now. Student fees are also available for full time students only, however there is a limited number of student registrations so please book early!

Whether your research relates to housing or heat islands, transport or tourism, planning history, sustainable futures or anything else ‘urban’, come along and meet other PhD and early career researchers.
This event is an opportunity to talk with urban researchers who have recently negotiated the ECR path and found their own foothold in the academic environment.
