On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the IV World Planning Schools Congress in Rio de Janeiro, may I remind you that the CALL FOR ABSTRACTS IS NOW OPEN.

The extended deadline for abstract submission is October 19th, 2015

A modification of abstract submission rules has been introduced. To facilitate the submission of abstracts and given a request from the Steering Committee of GPEAN, the Organizing Committee has decided to reduce the minimum size of abstracts to 4,000 characters, approximately 700 words.The procedures are explained in Call for Papers and Submissions.

The call for abstracts is available in detail by each track, so please click on tracks for descriptions.

To submit an abstract please enter the home page of the Congress site and click the LOGIN | REGISTER button on the top right side of the page. After registering you can submit your abstracts.

Please also note that, every five years when World Planning Schools Conference is held, AESOP does not hold its annual congress in Europe but instead joins the global planning community at the WPSCs. Therefore, in 2016 we will not be organising an AESOP congress in Europe and invite you all to join the WPSC2016.
