Green Roofs for Healthy Cities is looking for papers for their Fifth Annual International Greening Rooftops for Sustainable Cities Conference, Awards and Trade Show which takes place from April 29- May 2, 2007 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The conference will raise awareness of the many benefits of green roofs, share new research findings, provide information on the latest designs, implementation techniques and products, and broaden networks while working towards building more sustainable cities through green roof implementation.
Conference streams fall under Policy, Design and Case Studies, and Research.
Last year’s conference in Boston featured more than 35 speakers from 10 different countries presenting papers to more than 800 delegates. Sixty exhibitors showcased the latest products and services now available to the rapidly expanding green roof industry.
Submission requirements are a 300-word abstract and a 50-word biography. Abstracts are due by September 29, 2006, and final papers by January 5, 2007.
