IN URBAN STUDIES, URBAN PLANNING AND PUBLIC POLICY

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 We invite your participation in the 9th Annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference in Urban Studies, Urban Planning and Public Policy, scheduled for Thursday, March 9, 2017 at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ.

 

WHAT IS THE KRUECKEBERG DOCTORAL CONFERENCE?

The Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference is organized by doctoral students for doctoral students engaged in urban-, planning-, and policy-related research across disciplines and universities in the tri-state NJ-NY-PA metropolitan region. Named after Professor Donald A. Krueckeberg, the conference commemorates Don Krueckeberg’s long-running commitment to doctoral education by providing a one-day forum highlighting doctoral student research at the cutting edge of urban studies, planning, and public policy.

Doctoral students at any stage of dissertation research are invited and encouraged to present their work at the conference. You can participate in the conference if you are first year and trying out a topic, you have just defended a finished dissertation, or you are anywhere in between. Presentations can outline a tentative research topic, survey the literature, report interim findings, or overview a completed dissertation. Each presenter will have 15 minutes, followed by a Q&A period at the end of each session.

 

HOW CAN YOU PRESENT YOUR WORK AT THE CONFERENCE?

To participate in the program, submit the Abstract Submission Form (see link below) by January 23, 2017. Your Abstract (max. 250 words) should include a problem statement; a description of the work completed, in progress, or anticipated; a summary of findings (if any); and a discussion of project significance and/or questions for continuing research. In a separate statement (max. 250 words) explain where you are in the PhD process and how presenting at the conference relates to your progress in your PhD program. All Abstract Submission Forms must be submitted electronically using the link below.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the KDC planning committee and participants will be notified of acceptance by about February 3, 2017. Papers will be selected based on quality of thought, time available for presentations, and the need to reflect the substantive, conceptual, and methodological diversity of doctoral research.

 

WHY SHOULD YOU PRESENT YOUR WORK AT THE CONFERENCE?

  • Presenting your work is an excellent exercise that helps you think clearly and carefully about your project so you can explain it to others who may be unfamiliar with your topic.
  • You will get valuable practice in speaking before a friendly and supportive audience.
  • You will receive useful and constructive feedback on your work from your peers.
  • You will participate in the community of scholars working in urban studies, planning and public policy in multiple disciplines across the tri-state metropolitan area.
  • You can list the conference presentation on your CV.
  • You will strengthen ties among doctoral students in the tri-state region.
