Abstracts for the BUP Research Forum

The submission of abstracts is now closed

The BUP Research Forum is an interdisciplinary forum with an emphasis on research relevant to the Baltic Sea Region in the context of Sustainable Development with focus on nine different Themes: Climate Change and Renewable Energy, Sustainable Food Systems, Sustainable Water Resources, Urban-Rural Development, Sustainable Mobility, Circular Economy, Sustainable Tourism, Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Sustainable Societies.

We are challenging researchers from different disciplines with an interest in the Baltic Sea Region as an empirical field to discuss Sustainable Development in the Baltic Sea Region. You are warmly welcome to give presentations and discuss your ongoing research and projects with key scholars in the field.

More detailed description about the conference Themes can be found under the Theme sessions. You can find Important dates and more information about the Conference Venue here.

As a researcher you are welcome to submit an abstract, which means if accepted you will orally present your research at the BUP Research Forum at the symposium. You are also welcome to bring a poster, see instructions below.

On behalf of the organisers we wish you warmly welcome to Visby to the first BUP SYMPOSIUM ever!

The Abstract

An abstract should describe the rationale and aims of the paper, and some of its results. General descriptions of broad contexts should be avoided. Abstracts should be written in the third person and not in the first or second one (e.g. I, me, or my paper). Authors whose abstracts have been accepted, will receive further details about how to submit their conference proceedings, and further logistical information. 

Abstracts submitted before the deadline will be reviewed. Decisions about acceptance/rejection are sent to the applicants in February 2020. After this the scientific committee will plan the detailed program for each Theme session and contact the participants in case further information is needed.

All accepted abstracts will be published in a Book of Abstracts under the condition that they are orally presented by at least one of the authors.

For possibilities to publish your contribution please see the Publications page.
