Abstract submission has now closed, we look forward to seeing you in Glasgow.
The organising committee are pleased to announce that the 22nd IAPS Conference entitled, Human Experience in the Natural and Built Environment: Implications for Research Policy and Practice, will take place at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow from the 24th to the 29th June 2012.
In accordance with the IAPS mission, the Conference will explore human behavior and experience in both the built and natural environments and will focus on the relationship between research, practice and policy and how this can significantly impact on socially and environmentally sustainable development.
The Conference intends to achieve its main goal by tracing and recording development in research, identifying future research strategies, and critically strengthening research links with professional practice and policy making. This will be done within three themes: Geography and Context (urbanisation and planning in developed and developing countries); Planning, Design and Evaluation in Human Environments; Policy Implementation and Management.
In exploring the inter-relationships between research, policy and practice, the Conference seeks to address questions such as when, how and why should these areas come together? By addressing these questions the Conference aims to highlight the importance of multi-disciplinary research and critical thinking, the potential impact of environment-behaviour research on policy and practice and future areas for collaboration and implementation of expertise.
Please note that for unforeseen circumstances, the Council for European Urbanism event: 'Evidence-based Design: a promising new basis for progress on real changes in the built environment.' has been CANCELLED. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause, but we trust the programme on Monday afternoon is still rich and interesting for you all.
