ISAGA2019 special 50th anniversary conf, 26-30 Aug, 2019, Warsaw http://isaga2019.org/. However, the CfP for this special collection may have closed by then.
In any case, please consider submitting a proposal for the track "Gaming for Sustainable Development Goals" http://isaga2019.org/index.php/programme/tracks.
"In 2015, the United Nations seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted 'to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all'. Simulation/gaming in general and ISAGA in particular can attribute immensely to achieving those goals. Several SDG simulation/game initiatives have already been developed round the world, thus providing a rich grounding on which to base our SDG Track at ISAGA 2019, just in time for the SDG target year of 2030."
We invite you to present your work in this important area. Track Chair: David Crookall - crookall.simulation at googlemail dot com.
Next Earth: Teaching Climate Change Across the Disciplines A Nearly-Carbon Neutral Conference at UC Santa Barbara June 10-30, 2019 Call for Papers http://ehc.english.ucsb.edu/?page_id=18908 Recognizing the severity of the climate crisis, and driven by profound and renewed belief in the power of education to help reimagine and build a better, more sustainable, and environmentally just world, or “next Earth,” Transformative Education for Climate Action will be the theme of the summer 2019 nearly-carbon neutral conference for UC Santa Barbara’s Environmental Humanities Initiative (EHI). We invite your participation!
Abstracts of up to 250 words and a brief biographical note should be submitted by March 15 to John Foran (email@example.com).
Although the scale of the problem demands that academia, the sciences, business, government, and the public quickly begin acting in concert to achieve the best possible outcomes, decades of inaction rooted in interest-driven conflict and disagreements have ushered in a new era of environmental and climate crises.
The range of possible futures includes widely divergent “next Earths” and any number of paths forward.
As educators in climate change, climate justice, critical sustainability, and carbon neutrality, our responsibility could not be greater to our students, for they are the generation that will forge the ideas that will determine which of these next Earths will be our home.
To that end, we would like to bring together critical climate and sustainability educators of every discipline, from the arts and humanities to the human and social sciences and the natural sciences, with a focus on sharing ideas to accelerate climate education and action in California and beyond.
We invite teachers, students, cultural creatives, and people from all walks of life who want to find better ways to enable students and teachers to apply their knowledge in innovative ways to real-world problems and to support each other in our collaborations in an open and wide-ranging project – imagining and creating “just transitions to the next Earth” – by reshaping our relationships with each other and the systems and institutions that determine the quality of life today and tomorrow for our own communities and communities around the world. Given the disparities and injustices that inhere in our global situation where those societies that are the major producers of greenhouse gas emissions are more insulated than others from the effects of climate change, we invite submissions that cultivate interdisciplinary and decolonizing approaches to teaching in this area. We are reaching out to college-level teachers and students in particular, but given the importance of the topic, this conference will be open to contributions that focus on any kind and age level. Note that our goal – as much as possible – is to have a nearly carbon-neutral conference. Even a relatively small academic conference can generate the equivalent of 20,000 pounds or more of CO2 (chiefly from travel). To put that number in perspective, this is the total annual carbon footprint of ten people living in India, thirty-three in Kenya. We believe that a conference that takes up the issue of climate change while simultaneously contributing to the problem to such a degree is immoderate.
Consequently, this conference will largely occur online. During the conference, which will take place over three weeks, talks will be available for viewing on the conference website. Q&A will also take place online during this period, as participants and registered attendees will be able to pose questions to speakers via online comments and speakers will be able to reply in the same way. Both the talks and Q&A sessions will remain up on the website as a permanent archive of the event.
Instead of traveling to the conference to attend panels and deliver a talk, speakers agree to do the following:
Film yourself giving a talk of 15-17 minutes. The webcams that come with desktop and laptop computers have improved dramatically over the past few years. Webcams with noise cancelling microphones, which can be purchased for under $50, can often provide even better quality. It is also the case that most computers have video recording software preinstalled, such as Apple’s QuickTime. Consequently, it is now possible, and relatively easy, to record a talk of surprisingly good quality in your home or office. How easy is it and how good is the quality? A sample talk that explains the concept and process in detail can be found here: http://ehc.english.ucsb.edu/?p=12048.
Take part in your online Q&A session by responding to questions raised by your talk. You will automatically receive an email each time a new question is posed. Only registered conference participants (this includes speakers, as well as others who register to follow the conference) will be posing questions.
View as many of the talks as possible, posing questions of your own to speakers. This is especially important, as this is how you will meet and interact with other conference participants. As with any academic conference, our goal is help establish relationships and to build a community. In this case, since travel has been removed from the equation, our hope is that this community will be diverse and truly global.
Abstracts are due by March 15, 2019.
Participants will be informed if their submissions have been accepted by April 1.
Videos of the talks will be due by June 1.
The online conference will take place from June 10-30.
