Call for Papers: 2013 AIBC Annual Conference

The Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC), in partnership with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) – Northwest & Pacific Region, is currently accepting submissions from those interested in speaking, participating in panel discussions or facilitating interactive workshops at their 2013 Annual Conference. The conference takes place October 23-26, 2013 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West in Vancouver, BC.

This year’s conference’s theme – Sea Change: Architecture on the Crest – calls attention to the dynamic, critical times in which we live. Forces of change, both natural and man-made, are shaking the foundations of our communities and stirring questions about our shared future. Global issues such as livability, sustainability, affordability and environmental impact are felt by all, with a particularly strong resonance within the architectural profession. The goal of this conference is to inform, excite, challenge and inspire in order to bring about positive change. It will also serve to underscore the important role that architects can and should play in helping to continue charting the course for successful, sustainable communities.

February 28, 2013 is the deadline for expressions of interest. Simply send an e-mail to [email protected] indicating your intention to submit a proposal along with proposed session title and presenter name(s).

March 14, 2013 is the deadline for completed proposals, including session outline and learning outcomes.
