CRADLE TO CRADLE SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM
September 14, 2018
Leuphana University, Lüneburg (Germany)
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: August 15th, 2018
The Cradle to Cradle Science Symposium is an international event for researchers, scientists, academics and scholar students to explore revolutionary ideas & results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The C2C Science Symposium is the first scientific meeting discussing latest research in the field of circular economy, respectively product design as defined by Cradle to Cradle (C2C).
The Cradle to cradle school of thought and design concept take entirely different perspectives in order to meet today’s global challenges in an intelligent manner. The concept builds on the inherent intelligence of natural systems and states that all materials that we use can perpetually circulate in either biological or technological cycles.
The call for abstracts invites leading C2C academics from a broad range of sectors to take part in the current C2C discussions in academia and to identify challenges for future scientific and research agendas. Abstracts considered for oral or poster presentation may provide an insight into original research contributions relating to all aspects of life and economy:
- Buildings and architecture
- Food science
- Business management and new work
- Social science
- Civilization & Education
The Science Symposiums aims to support C2C as an area of fundamental and applied research. Our goal is to support, encourage and provide a platform for networking, sharing, publishing and nurturing the potential growth of individual scholars across the globe with innovation approach.
The Symposium is hosted by the C2c e.V. as an associated event within the framework of the C2C Congress 2018.

GUIDELINES FOR PRESENTATIONS
Oral presentations are short talks that may be given individually or as part of a panel or group discussion. Researchers often prefer oral presentations over poster sessions and other formats because many view them to the prestigious option. There are several types of oral presentations:
Individual Presentations: These may be contributed or invited talks that are often 15 minutes in length and leave just a short time, if any, for questions from the audience. The presenter will prepare a conference paper that will be presented and is typically a more focused, narrower version of their overall project.
Tracked Session Presentations: These sessions at conference primarily include completed research or scholarly work. The presentations will be grouped by topic or theme into sessions that include several related presentations. This facilitates audience attendance and organizes topics at the conference.
Poster presentations are opportunities for a larger number of researchers to present their research in the form a visual poster presentation. The posters are large (often 5ft*2ft) and provide the researcher with enough space to fully summarize their research in an attractive and professional way. You must provide your own printout of the poster itself. The presenter typically prepares a short oral summary that can be given to those who are interested. Attendees are free to move about the room and examine posters and talk individually to the presenters. This format does allow the opportunity for a research target those that are genuinely interested and engage them in discussion that often allows for more detail. Another advantage of this type of format is that researcher can receive valuable feedback from the attendees.
