Online Only in 2021 // Blended 2022

Due to current restrictions on entry into Canada— and uncertainty on the date these restrictions will end—we have decided to continue with only the online component of the 2021 conference.
We are nonetheless excited to announce the online conference will be delivered on the CGScholar platform – developed by the Common Ground Media Lab, the research and technology arm of Common Ground Research Networks.
We are moving to bring the conference experience into the digital era. All presenters will be given Presenter Pages: linked to profiles on CGScholar, displaying abstract summary, thematic connection to panelists and peers, ability to add digital media: video, sound, other files. As an alternative, you can also participate online with Audience Passes. And finally, we'll be offering innovative online social spaces to frame serendipitous encounters for personal and professional growth.
All "Blended" registration types will be able to present online in 2021 and in-person (and/or) online in 2022.
This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.

Themes and Special Focus

Founded in 2010, 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. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

The Eleventh International Conference on The Constructed Environment calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:

  • 2021 Special Focus: Building the Anthropocene
  • Theme 1: The Design of Space and Place
  • Theme 2: Constructing the Environment
  • Theme 3: Environmental Impacts
  • Theme 4: Social Impacts
