Call for papers issued for Canadian Brownfields 2005
The Canadian Brownfields Network (CBN) is inviting abstracts for papers to be presented at the fifth annual Canadian Brownfields 2005 conference, to be held October 13 and 14 at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa. The conference committee is seeking case studies, technologies, applications or unique perspectives related to brownfield redevelopment and urban renewal from professionals in every region and from all sectors of the brownfields industry.
Submissions, limited to 250 words in length, should emphasize how the presentation advances our understanding of brownfield redevelopment practice. They may be E-mailed to Glenn Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org or Todd Latham, email@example.com.
This year's event will focus on the key drivers that are making brownfields redevelopment an increasingly important part of city building and smart growth across Canada. Themes will include political and technological innovation, municipal and private-sector partnerships and international experience to revitalize communities and restore urban cores.
A highlight of the conference will be the presentation of the Canadian Urban Institute (CUI) Brownie Awards. Nominations are now being accepted for the awards, now in their fifth year; the deadline is September 9, 2005. The CUI received a record number of quality submissions for the nine award categories and expects this year's nominations to be equally strong.
Details on award categories, criteria and nomination forms are available from Glenn Miller at 416/365-0816 or Todd Latham at 416/510-6804, or on the CBN Web site, www.canadianbrownfieldsnetwork.ca.
