Abstract Deadline Extension 

Extended until 27th March 2017

The SOAC17 Organising Committee, chaired by Emeritus Professor Stephen Hamnett, invites you to submit abstracts for the 8th State of Australian Cities Conference. 

SOAC is the premier conference for academics and researchers focused on the complex challenges and issues facing urban landscapes within Australia.  The conference aims to provide a focus for new urban scholarship and will bring together the most prominent academics working in this area in Australia, together with new researchers, policy makers and practitioners – who are interested in the Australian city.

Organised around the seven research themes detailed below, SOAC is returning to Adelaide, a city synonymous with good planning and urban experimentation, in 2017. SOAC2017 is especially important as it marks the 100th Anniversary of Australia’s first Australian Town Planning and Housing Conference, also held in Adelaide in 1917.   

Abstracts are invited that address one of the conference’s urban themes: 

Peer Review Process

Abstracts will be reviewed by an editorial review panel, and authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit full papers of 5000 words (not including references) for peer review in July 2017.  The editorial review panel may request revisions be made to submitted abstracts prior to acceptance.
