Proposals for sessions are sought for the fifth annual AIARG conference to be held in Cork on the 29-30th January 2016. The Cork Centre for Architectural Education is hosting the conference in the year that marks a decade since the foundation of the school. As well as engaging with the schools of architecture, this conference aims to encourage the participation of practicing architects who wish to further their research interests.
Following the success of last year’s conference in Dublin, a staged approach is being used, whereby thematic sessions from this initial call will be employed for a subsequent call for papers. Groups or individuals may propose the thematic sessions. In each case, the chair/s will be required to select approximately four papers and to work with their selected presenters to review their papers and organise the running of the session.
Proposals for sessions of a maximum of 300 words should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org The proposal should include the title of the session, the name/s of the session chair/s, relevant contact details, curriculum vitae and professional affiliation where applicable. The deadline for the receipt of session submissions is 5pm 15th of June 2015.
