    Paradigms, models, scenarios and practices in terms of strong sustainability

    While the notion of sustainability continues to be associated with the Brundtland Report (1987) and the concept of sustainable development, a community of sustainability researchers and practitioners increasingly seeks to emancipate the concept to be consistent with the knowledge and aspirations of the moment. The enthusiasm and expectations for more sustainability go beyond mere environmental issues. They touch on crucial social issues as well. The symposium papers intends to question the paradigms, models, scenarios and practices that embody sustainability. One may wonder what meaning should be given to the very idea of sustainability and the representations it conveys.

    Geomedia and the City

    Geomedia is an emerging concept that has been deployed to capture a particular technological condition, associated with recent rapid developments in digital technology. As such, it signals to the dialectics of locative media and the mediations of localities. However, the concept of geomedia carries deeper/wider ontological and epistemological registers that transcend the simple twining of geography and media. In this wider sense, geomedia gestures to the expanding interdisciplinary terrain at the crossroads of media studies and geography, where various ontologies and epistemologies of space/time, flows/mobilities and mediation/ mediatization come together. The aim of this special issue is to explore the urban as a key terrain where these ontologies and epistemologies are articulated.

    Digital Humanities in Portugal: building bridges and breaking barriers in the digital age

    Discussion about the role of the Humanities in academia and society has a long history. The confluence of this debate with the changes brought about by digital technology is not new either: one cannot speak of "new technologies" for the Humanities when many researchers turned to digital methods at least four decades ago, in disciplines as diverse as Linguistics, History or Literary Studies. The Conference “Digital Humanities in Portugal” aims precisely to stimulate these intersections, opening up a forum for discussion and sharing of research results or ongoing projects in this field of knowledge.

    Evaluation of a region’s renewable natural capital

    EPFL is offering a high-profile post-doc position

    The purpose of the post-doc research is to test and possibly validate the feasibility and relevance of ecosystem capital accounts (SCEEA-CEC) or, said differently, the contribution of natural capital to productive systems, in a regional context (the Rhone river basin). The approach should cover the following aspects: availability, collection and processing of geographic and monitoring data and statistics, relevance of the assessments in natural and social sciences, relevance of the information tools ability to support the regulatory and economic instruments of environmental governance of institutional and territorial spaces.

    Networks over space and time: modelling, analyzing, and representing complex data in the digital humanities

    This workshop is about interconnections between, and in space and time. But it also sees interconnections at other levels: between modelling and analysing, between theory and practice, as well as between humanities and computing.

    In the humanities, a close look at networks and relationships, whether formal or informal, personal or social, of information or of knowledge, of transportation or of communication, has always been an important subject of study and, at the same time, a powerful analytical process. In computer science, the study of networks and of methodologies for analysis and visualization of these relationships is nowadays an increasingly well understood and practiced area of knowledge. In both the humanities and computer science, researchers are well aware of the dynamic nature of data and knowledge when viewed through the lenses of space and time.

    Modelling and benchmarking of borders

    Belgeo 2-2013

    L'étude des espaces transfrontaliers se fait souvent en référence à un contexte propre, dans la mesure où chaque frontière peut difficilement être analysée indépendamment du cas toujours particulier des États en présence, des organisations régionales, locales et d'une certaine histoire. L’objectif de ce numéro spécial de Belgéo est d’évaluer comment dépasser la démarche monographique et parvenir à une modélisation de ces espaces.

    Ambiances in action

    The second International Congress on Ambiances is an international gathering for researchers, artists and players engaged in analyzing the ambiance-related dimensions of the built environment and in the sensory construction of the contemporary world. Many approaches are at work in the field of architectural and urban ambiance, and these multiple contributions nurture its rich diversity. The Congress aims to give voice to this activity, feeding on work exploring new forms of exchange between what is designed and what is experienced, between the measured and the qualified, the projected and the tested, the material and the immaterial. The Congress will be held for four days at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), in Montreal, from 19 to 22 September 2012. It will seek to express advances in learning and new hypotheses proposed by the various disciplines and fields of activity which address the question of ambiances.

    Estuarine and Lagoon Ecosystem Trajectories

    Throughout the world, estuaries and lagoons are among the most intensely modified and threatened aquatic ecosystems. Moreover, these systems are vulnerable to the consequences of global change. From a management point of view, there is a tremendous and concrete lack of knowledge regarding the functioning of estuarine ecosystems and the socio-economic relations that bind the various actors to these environments. This ECSA symposium will contribute to provide sound science on past and future estuarine and lagoon ecosystem evolution from ecological, social and political point of view. All example of medium and long terms surveys, describing how the ecosystem and socio-ecosystem is evolving are welcome.

    Regional Water Management and Adaptive Management

    How to deal with multi-scalar issues?

    This seminar aims to discuss the interactions between regionalisation of water management and adaptive management. Regionalisation embeds many scales of time and space, which have to be combined to improve and change stakeholder practices. The seminar will bring together international specialists to analyse how adaptive management can deal with institutional, technical and political multi-scalar issues in order to foster change of practises. This seminar is organised in partnership with AgroParisTech Clermont-Ferrand, INRA-SAD and UMR METAFORT.

    Géohistoire et données anciennes

    Appel à contributions pour Géocarrefour, vol. 84 (hiver 2009)

    L’approche de type géohistorique irrigue les courants les plus divers de la géographie, son originalité tenant au fait qu’elle cherche à replacer la dynamique et la structuration des milieux ou des territoires dans le temps long. Plus qu'une histoire spatialisée elle vise donc une compréhension des phénomènes spatiaux et du sens de leurs enchaînements au cours du temps. Elle peut prétendre de ce fait à un certain renouvellement du genre monographique qui devient l’exercice préalable à l’identification de trajectoires d’évolution ou de recompositions.Ce numéro de Géocarrefour, espéré pour la fin de l'année 2009, abordera plusieurs pistes dans ce sens.
