Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning - Call for Papers for the 44th Annual Conference

Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning - Call for Papers for the 44th Annual Conference

Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning

November 21-24, 2002 in Baltimore, MD.

Theme: Waters and Shores


The Conference Committee of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning and the Local Host Committee at Morgan State University and the University of Maryland cordially invite proposals for individual papers, complete paper sessions, roundtable discussions and poster presentations for the annual conference of the Association. The invitation is extended to faculty and students of ACSP member programs and to scholars and scholarly practitioners outside the ACSP family who are concerned with planning cities and regions.

Detailed information and access to the on-line abstract submission site are posted to the ACSP website. View "Conference Information" at

Submission and Fees: The fee for online submission is $25 per abstract. The fee for proposals submitted by mail is $35 per abstract. The ACSP does not accept abstract submissions by fax or e-mail. Details about forms of payment are available at the ACSP website.

New tracks this year: The conference this year is organized around sixteen tracks. Two of the tracks are new. One of the new choices chosen by the Local Host Committee, deals with rethinking the relations between waters and shores. While our Baltimore hosts - you have only to look at the map – will devote some of their local sessions to that theme, we welcome proposals dealing with waters and shores across North America and, indeed, across the globe. The second distinctive 2002 track deals with 9-11-01 and its aftermath, expanding on discussions that were barely begun in Cleveland in 2001.

Fannie Mae Foundation Awards: The Fannie Mae Foundation encourages research on a range of housing and community development issues including increasing social capital in communities, social policy issues, federal housing policy, home ownership, and discrimination in housing and mortgage markets. ACSP and the Foundation annually award $1,000 prizes for the Best Student Paper, Best Conference Paper, and the Best Paper on Learning from Practice in Housing and Community Development. All ACSP participants are eligible for these awards.

Questions should be addressed to Seymour Mandelbaum, National Conference Chair: [email protected].
