Call for Abstracts – Park Politics Conference Vienna/Austria, 7 – 9 June 2018

Extended deadline for abstracts: July 14, 2017

ILA Institute of Landscape Architecture at BOKU Vienna is pleased to announce the Park Politics Conference, which we are organising together with the Az W, the Architectural Centre Vienna. Park Politics will take place from 7 to 9 June, 2018 in Vienna, both in Az W and at BOKU.

With the conference we want to investigate how the political is expressed in space, whether it is in the design, management or use of urban open spaces.

The event is conceived as a mixture of contributions from practice and research and starts with a lecture afternoon in the Az W with inputs from Ruedi Baur/graphic designer, Emily Eliza Scott/artist and ETH Zurich, Bernd Belina/geographer Goethe University Frankfurt, Julie Bargmann/D.I.R.T. studio (requested) and Christoph Schmidt/Grün Berlin GmbH (requested). On Friday, the conference will continue with sessions for paper presentations at BOKU.


Find all further information on our institute’s website as well as on the abstract submission website:

To submit an extended abstract, please log in as an AUTHOR to the OCS system.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to many requests we have decided to extend the deadline for abstract submission to July 14, 2017.

We are looking forward to your interesting contributions!

Best regards,

Eva Schwab
