Call for abstracts

Call for abstracts

We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit an abstract to be part of the #NHCDarwin program. The NHC aims to present sessions in line with policy development and pertinent housing priorities, sparking diverse, evidence-based discussion.

With a renewed focus on housing future communities, now is the time to lead with innovative best practice in the sector. Presentation opportunities may come in a variety of formats – including standard presentations, panel or workshop participation and Think Tank sessions. Authors are asked to be flexible with the final presentation style. This enables a tailored, innovative program that maximises audience participation and keeps topics alive and engaging.

The call for abstracts to fill a limited number of opportunities within the NHC 2019 program will close 31 January 2019.

Topics may include

  • Indigenous housing and homelessness
  • Housing as social infrastructure
  • Partnering with the private sector
  • Best practice in integrated housing support/tenancy management
  • Local government and housing policy
  • Affordable housing construction and design (urban, regional, international)
  • Social impact investment
  • Housing for people with disability
  • Financing affordable housing
  • Population growth, cities and decentralisation
  • Growth of the private rental sector
  • Sustainable housing and energy costs
  • Alternative affordable housing models
  • Housing and ageing
  • Urban renewal
  • Other (e.g. housing for refugees, regulation of the affordable housing industry)

This list is not exhaustive. We are looking for the full spectrum of thought leadership and solutions in housing and cities. Other topics might include housing for refugees or innovation in the affordable housing industry. The conference plays an important role in guiding national dialogue, and we seek out a diversity of ideas in our programming. To submit an abstract please read the NHC2019 Abstract Submission guidelines and submit at Oxford Abstracts.
