The IPHS 2018 welcomes papers and presentations that contribute to the discussion about “Looking at the world history of planning”, which is the conference theme.
We also invite proposals on topics relevant to the following sub-themes:
- urban form
- urban visions
- comprehensive planning
- planning legacy and heritage
- cross-cultural exchange and colonization
- concept and methodology of global/world planning history
Be that as it may, proposals on other topics relevant to urban and regional planning history generally and proposals for advanced interdisciplinary studies for specific areas in (comparative) urban and regional planning history are welcome as well.
Categories of Proposal
The 18th IPHS 2018 Yokohama conference has a great range of proposals in three categories; Abstract, Panel, and Round Table.
The Abstract is an outline of your research. The authors who pass the peer-review for abstracts can then proceed to the peer-review track for full papers (optional).
The Panel is an organized session with a specific theme and includes related three to four presentations of abstracts.
The Round table is a session with neither formal presentations nor abstracts.
All proposals are due by the
11th 18th December, 2017 via online submission system. The results will be notified to the authors in early February, 2018. (See the important dates)
Abstracts of research papers are required for all candidates who want to give their presentations. All proposal abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the academic committee. And the authors who want to publish their full papers in the conference proceedings have to go through a peer-reviewed process of full papers. The publication of abstracts and full papers are available only for the authors with conference registration.
Abstracts should be written in no more than 500 words exclusive of references. Links between the paper and the conference theme should be indicated with keywords if possible.
Also a short biographical statement (about 200 words) or a short resume needs to be submitted with the abstract, including full contact information (affiliation, address, email, and phone).
Abstracts (and full papers) should be written in English.
Please submit your abstract through the form of the EasyChair system and attach your short biographical statement or CV in the PDF format through the EasyChair form.

Panel is an organized session with a specific theme which includes three to four relevant presentations. Proposals for whole panels are encouraged and given preference in the program.
Colleagues who want to organize a panel have to submit a brief abstract on the theme of the session (about 200 words) with three to four abstracts of research papers. The proposal panels are refereed by the academic committee. The included abstracts should comply with the format of the proposal abstracts. A short biographical statement (about 200 words) or a short resume of each presenter needs to be submitted with the abstract, including full contact information (affiliation, address, email, and phone). Panels can be held only in English.
The panel organizers should find three to four presenters before the submission. If you have difficulty with finding enough presenters, please contact us via “How can I find colleagues for my panel?” or Facebook, well in advance of the deadline. The organizing committee may arrange additional presenter(s) when the panel organizer cannot find enough number of presenter(s).
