Planning and Natural Hazards
The Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), together with the
Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP), will grant one award
recognizing scholarship in the general area of planning and natural
hazards in 2005. Eligible papers must be accepted for presentation and
given at the ACSP conference in Charleston, South Carolina, to be held
October 27-30, 2005. The winner will agree to first publication rights by
IBHS in its quarterly publication Disaster Safety Review.
Papers should address land use or other types of planning that incorporate
natural hazards, including, but not limited to: flooding, coastal erosion,
land subsidence, earthquakes, or other geologic or meteorological hazard
impacts that can be minimized through community, regional, or state
planning. The awardee will receive a prize of $500, which will be
presented at the ACSP 2005 conference. Undergraduate, graduate, and joint
faculty/student papers are eligible. For joint faculty/student papers, the
student must be the first author and designated presenter of the paper.
Abstracts may be submitted directly to the ACSP conference organizers
between January 17 and February 28, 2005. Abstract submission procedures
