Yes, it’s time once again to submit your paper and poster abstracts for the Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) CitiesAlive Green Roof & Wall Conference and Trade Show.
GRHC is pleased to be working with the City of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society as co-hosts for CitiesAlive, the 9th Annual Green Roof & Wall Conference to be held this year in Philadelphia, PA from November 29 to December 3, 2011.
“Philadelphia is taking a leading green approach to storm water management through the use of green infrastructure, making water the primary theme for this year’s conference. As a secondary theme, for the first time ever, we will be focusing on indoor greening, where the effects of indoor living plants, walls and atria will be discussed with regard to design, and the science of health and productivity among other things. Our third theme for the conference focuses on residential green infrastructure where interesting residential green roof projects and economic models will be highlighted.” ~ Green Roofs for Healthy Cities
GRHC says they are looking for papers that display novel ideas on the above mentioned themes. The abstract content will be evaluated by independent multi-disciplinary volunteers for innovation, new information or description of a new process. The credentials of the authors will be assessed along with the relevance on the paper to the overall conference themes. The paper abstracts must also fall into one of three categories: Programs and Policies to Support Green Roofs and Green Walls, Green Roof / Green Wall Design and Implementation or Research/Technical Papers on Green Roof and Green Wall Performance.
Haven and I will be submitting our abstract for our 5th installment of our “Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design“- hopefully we’ll be accepted again, and we’ll see you there!
