      Award for Scholarship in Planning and Natural Hazards

      Abstract Deadline: February 16, 2004
      Paper Deadline: May 25, 2004


      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. Eligible papers must be accepted for presentation and presented
      at the ACSP conference October 21-24, 2004 in Portland, Oregon.

      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 2004 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 5 and February 16, 2004. Abstract submission procedures
      can be found at www.acsp.org.

      At the same time, copies of the abstracts should be sent by e-mail to the ACSP-IBHS committee chair with a cover memo indicating intent to
      submit a paper for the ACSP-IBHS award.

      Only papers accepted for presentation at the ACSP Conference are eligible
      for the award. Authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at
      the conference should submit their final papers electronically to the
      ACSP-IBHS committee chair by May 25, 2004 with full student author

      degree program (undergraduate, masters, Ph.D.), degree status (in progress
      or awarded), mailing address, phone, facsimile and e-mail. Papers are not
      to exceed 20 pages.
