Call for Papers for CitiesAlive 2012!

on February 17, 2012 at 11:59 am under

It’s that time of year again, folks!  Green Roofs for Healthy Cities has announced their  Call for Papers for CitiesAlive 2012. Held this year in October instead of December, Chicago – home of the inaugural Greening Rooftops for Sustainable Communities Conference, Awards and Trade Show – will once again host the renamed CitiesAlive for its 10th year anniversary.

Here are the details from their website:

“Building a Legacy of Outstanding Performance is the primary theme for this year’s CitiesAlive program. A living example of legacy urban planning, Chicago has the most green roof coverage in North America. This would have been impossible without maintenance measures and performance evaluations to protect investments in green infrastructure and to build exceptional progress. The development of performance standards is integral to the growth of any industry.

The CitiesAlive conference call for paper abstracts is looking for papers that display novel ideas on the above-mentioned theme. The abstract content will be evaluated by independent multi-disciplinary volunteers on whether the submission displays innovation, presents new information or describes a new process. The credentials of the authors will be assessed along with the relevance of the paper to the overall conference theme.” ~  Green Roofs for Healthy Cities

The Call for Papers is due on Wednesday, March 21, 2012.  Click here to download a document with additional information and the submission form (.doc, ~1.8 MB).

Hopefully Haven’s and my 2012 Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design paper will be accepted for the 6th year in a row ~ we’ll see!

Happy greening,

~ Linda V.
