Call For Papers
The Conference theme is:
"Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: research, practice and education".
 
This theme emphasizes the strong foundation that is provided by using research to inform our everyday practices, policies, and analytical approaches.
 
The 2020 Conference will once again provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to Sustainability Science.

This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect.

We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the following streams within the ICSD2020 program:
1. ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY:
    Financial Sustainability, SME, MicroFinance,
    Emerging Countries, International Trade,
 
2. ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY:
    Water and Soil conservation, Climate Change, Disaster Risk Reduction,
    Renewable Energies, Food and Enviromental Legislation
 
3. SOCIO-CULTURAL SUSTAINABILITY:
    Sustainable Urbanism, Education, Governance Sustainability, 
    Human Development, Psychology, Sociology

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, or virtual presentation. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.  For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community send an e-mail at: icsd@ecsdev.org Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person.  All conference registrants (in-person and virtual) can be published in the European Journal of Sustainable Development.

I. CONFERENCE PROPOSAL GUIDELINES

Several types of information will be requested when you submit your proposal, but the "Long Description" is the central and most important component.  It contains the information which reviewers use to evaluate the proposal and, if your presentation is ultimately published in the journal, serves at the Abstract of the journal article.    While each proposal should address the purpose, methods, and implications of the scholarly work, the content within these general categories will vary somewhat, based on the type of scholarly work to be presented and the type of presentation you choose.  Illustrations of the topics, or elements, to be addressed in the proposal are presented below. Please note that all proposals and presentations must be in English or Italian.

II. TYPE OF SCHOLARLY WORK: RESEARCH, PRACTICE, OR THEORY

Research Focus

    Thesis statement:  the hypothesis, research statement, statement of the problem or issue being explored.
    Methodology: brief overview of research method used to address the research question identified in the thesis statement. For the proposal, include information on the type of data collected (e.g., surveys, interviews, tests, literary analysis or critique, observations) but not on design, sampling, or data analyses techniques (these should be explained in the full paper).
    Results: the main findings of the study, resulting from the methods used.
    Conclusions and Implications:  what the results mean for the field of study or for society; relate back to the thesis statement.

Practice Focus

    Framework: the scholarly knowledge base--theoretical framework, previous research, or conceptual approach--upon which the practical application is based.
    Description of practical application: what was designed or developed, how was it implemented, in what setting and with whom?
    Outcomes: what has been learned from the implementation, what strengths and weaknesses have been identified?
    Implications: what are the next steps or the implications for future practice or for society. 

Theory Focus

    Statement of the hypothesis, theoretical perspective, or philosophical idea being asserted.
    Relationship to existing theories or perspectives in the field.
    Contribution: how proposed idea advances knowledge in the field or benefits society.
