1st International Space Syntax Phd Conference 21 June 2021

Western Norway University of Applied Sciences is delighted to host the 1st International Space Syntax PhD Conference organised by the International space syntax steering committee's interim executive committee represented by Akkelies van Nes (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences), Meta Berghauser Pont (Chalmers University of Technology, and Laura Vaughan (University College London). The executive committee is supported by the reviewing committee represented by Claudia Yamu (University of Groningen), Chiara Garau (University of Cagliari), Evgeniya Bobkova (Chalmers University), Kimon Krenz (University College London), Sharifah S.S. Mahdzar (University Teknologi Malaysia) and Wendy Tan and Remco de Koning (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences). Given the current pandemic this international space syntax PhD conference will be held online in June 2021.

The conference addresses PhD students who apply space syntax in their research. The conference’s main aims are to nourish the space syntax academic debate among young academics, provide the PhD students with feedback for their work in progress, and to help building them their own space syntax PhD community and support network.

Key to the workshop is content-related discussions and feedback for PhD researchers work in progress. PhD students will present their work via an online conferencing tool (e.g. Zoom) to a panel of space syntax experts who provide with immediate feedback. These feedback rounds will be moderated by one of the organising committee members with another nominated member who will be responsible for note-taking and summarising the feedback in writing. In addition, this feedback will be sent to the PhD student after the PhD conference to support her/his further research work.

The submissions of abstracts are closed. If you like to be a listener, please send an email to us.

All inquiries and abstracts shall be send to prof. dr. Akkelies van Nes: avn@hvl.no
