Call for abstracts
Integrating indigenous perspectives with creative, environmental, scientific and academic
views on reality is essential to our future. We must work together to resolve the issues
facing humanity. SCANZ 2013: 3rd nature will bring together diverse people to discuss and
celebrate how to approach working together across cultures and disciplines.
Who should attend?
Tangata whenua, indigenous peoples, scientists, artists, environmentalists, academics,
philosophers, educationalists, musicians, teachers, technologists, and those concerned
about sustainability, the future of Earth and humanity.
The first day of the hui will be held at Owae marae. Keynote speakers presently confirmed
are Dr Te Huirangi Waikerepuru (Aotearoa New Zealand) and International Research Fellow
Nina Czegledy (Canada & Hungary). The second two days will be at the Western Institute
of Technology at Taranaki campus.
There are four types of presentations which will be reviewed by robust process: peer
reviewed, panel presentation, solutions and individual.
Abstracts (500 word maximum) are due May 15th 2013. There are both peer reviewed and
non-peer reviewed tracks.
We are using the conference management system Easy Chair. You need an Easy Chair log in.
The page to go is: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scanz2013
Further information covering submission process is available at the Intercreate web page.
While this part of the process is formal, the intention is to mix session types over the
three days. Some will be informal.
Above all it is the dialogue that will be interesting.
Best and we hope to see you there.
