Universal Design Conference calls for abstracts


The Call for Abstracts for the inaugural Universal Design Conference to be held in August at Sydney Town Hall is now open.

The event is a valuable opportunity for experts in the field of the built environment to contribute their knowledge and experience of universal design in this rapidly evolving and important field

The conference will be a key source of information and a venue to discuss ways in which to promote universal design and enable people of all ages and capabilities to participate in social and economic life.

The Conference is being hosted by Council of the Ageing NSW and is supported by the City of Sydney.

Presentations are invited on topics covering the built environment including public domain, urban design, housing, tourism, workplaces, sport and recreation, and open spaces.

Submissions chosen will form part of a comprehensive conference program, that includes keynote speaker Dr Gerald Craddock, the Chief Officer at Centre for Excellence in Universal Design in Ireland.

Established in January 2007, the Centre has been at the forefront of a movement to develop environments which are accessible and useable by all, regardless of age or level of capability.

The Call for Papers will close on 6th February 2014.

Don’t miss the opportunity to share your knowledge amongst a diverse audience including local government, planners, regulatory bodies, service providers, and advocacy and industry organisations.
