Call for Abstracts: Transforming Consumption-Production Systems Toward Just and Sustainable Futures

SCP-Conference 23


This inter- and transdisciplinary conference will provide a crucial opportunity to discuss recent advancements in sustainable consumption and production (SCP). It will provide a platform for building and enhancing connections between research, practice, and policy to increase understanding and action of how to move transformations to SCP forward.

Transformative social change is more likely at a confluence of a political window of opportunity. We may be facing this confluence now. On the political front, the IPCC report provides a new framing for political and policy debate, and for explicitly making sustainable consumption key to progress towards sustainable futures. The Covid pandemic has demonstrated that lifestyle changes are not beyond the realm of possibility. On the research front, a growing body of interdisciplinary work has uncovered how various aspects of the social and material world impede or enable lifestyle changes, with important insights for modelling transformations toward just, equitable and sustainable systems of production and consumption.

Call for papers: Causal Inference in Information Science



ScienceDirect is organizing a special issue at Information Processing and Management (IP&M). The topic of this special issue is "Causal Inference in Information Science", covering a wide range of topics on both methodology and application sides. The objective of setting up this special issue is to bridge the Information Science community with causal inference communities and to showcase how future information scientists establish their research in a causal inference way instead of purely at a correlation level.

Possible topics of submissions include but not limited to the below two different directions:

  • Methodology track: New causal inference methods (regression-, machine learning-, experiment-based, etc., strategies).
  • Application track: Applying causal inference strategies into specific research scenarios of Information Science (e.g., scientometrics, scholarly communication, information behavior, information retrieval, digital libraries, etc.).


Deadline: 31 May 2023

Call for papers - Interdisciplinary Conference 2023

Chelmsford campus


Interdisciplinary study offers an opportunity to forge a community of learning within a space where disciplinary knowledge and experiences can be shared and explored. Within this space ideas are communicated and shared, with opportunities for self-reflection and the prospect of growing inclusive values and behaviour.

The organisers invite submissions for short papers (15 minutes), hands-on workshops, and poster presentations. We are looking for submissions that report on practical experience where interdisciplinarity has had impacts on student outlook, action and vision. If the nature of education is to transform an individual by requiring them to engage with and explore new ideas, then how does interdisciplinarity help to achieve this aim? What steps are taken to get students to think more widely? In what ways does interdisciplinary study encourage students to think critically, independently and empathetically?


Deadline: 21. December 2022
