Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the UWA-Curtin local organising committee and the Australasian Cities Research Network (ACRN), I am delighted to announce that the website<http://soac2019.com.au/> and call for abstracts<http://soac2019.com.au/call-for-abstracts/> for SOAC2019 in Perth is now open.

SOAC2019 includes the AECURN-organised PhD/ECR Symposium (31 Nov – 2 Dec) which will be held at Curtin University’s Law School in the Perth CBD, and the main conference (3-5 December) which will be held at UWA’s Crawley campus on the banks of the Swan River.

The theme for SOAC2019 is: Australian Cities and Regions in an Era of Disruption and Innovation.

Disruption and innovation are interpreted to mean the policy, political, social, economic, environmental, cultural, technological, and infrastructural changes that affect how cities and regions are perceived, experienced and function.

As with previous SOAC conferences there are 7 tracks:

City Environment
City Structure
City Social and Housing
City Health/Liveability
City Movement and Infrastructure
City Governance
City Economics

For SOAC2019 colleagues may organise their own special sessions around a particular theme/issue within any of the above tracks. Special sessions may include: (i) academic paper/panels (up to 4 papers); (ii) policy panels; (iii) practice panels; and (iv) author meets critics.

SOAC2019 seeks to be a multi-disciplinary conference and to this end we invite abstracts/papers from colleagues within urban/regional planning, geography, urban design, architecture, sociology, public health, economics, political science, criminology, environmental science, ecology and anthropology with an interest in disruption and innovation in Australian cities/regions to join us in Perth.

And, we welcome abstracts/papers from policy researchers within Federal, State and Local Government, the private sector, and the NGO sector working on issues related to disruption and innovation in Australian cities/regions.

International colleagues doing comparative research on Australian cities/regions are also encouraged to submit abstracts.

Key dates for the conference are outlined below:
