We are pleased to share with you the Call for Papers for the Twelfth International Conference on The Constructed Environment, University of Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico, 28–29 April 2022.
The Constructed Environment Research Network is brought together by a common shared interest in human configurations of the environment and the interactions among the constructed, social and natural environments. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.
For over 30 years, Common Ground has been invested in developing technologies that seek to break down barriers of access in scholarly communication. In each phase, we’ve built media platforms to support spaces for interdisciplinary dialogue, before such approaches were in vogue; connected international voices, when disciplines were too often isolated in national silos; and supported an agenda of access and equality, by offering pathways and opportunities for diverse voices.
We now propose another kind of intervention -- to build a scholarly communication infrastructure for a blended future.
Our blended model seeks to transcend physical boundaries by offering a platform to extend in-person conference content online, while ensuring online-only delegates are afforded equal participatory and experiential spaces within the platform. At the same time, the model offers participants a legacy resource to which they can return in the Event application, with access to a social space in our Community application where fellow participants can keep connected long after the conference ends.
With this step-by-step guide, you can get an insight into the new phases pre/during/post-conference of the blended conference experience.
