Appel à sessions CIST2020 – Population, temps, territoires

Deadline
4 June 2019


The conference will take place from November 19th to 21st, 2020, on the campus Condorcet (Paris-Aubervilliers)

The 5th conference of the International College of Territorial Sciences is proposing to address the theoretical, methodological and practical issues raised by the simultaneous consideration of population, time and territories. These issues relate to two key challenges: (1) the aggregation of individual actions or the attributes of individuals within a population on a territory, and (2) the integration of the temporal dimension into the dynamics of populations (human and/or animal) and their territorial identification, at different scales.

Provisional Calendar

June 4th, 2019 : Deadline for submitting session proposals, to be sent by email only
July 2019 : Responses from the Scientific Committee
September 2019-January 2020 call for papers
March-May 2020 : Final selection and preparation of the programme
November 19th-21st, 2020 5th CIST conference on Condorcet campus

Session proposal guidelines

The conference languages are French,English andSpanish.

Researchers, teaching researchers and doctoral students can propose sessions.

Proposals should include:
– Title, and sub-title where appropriate,
– Presentation of the issue to be explored (between 180 and 250 words),
– Indicative bibliography on the subject of the session (5 to 10 references).
These first three items should be written in French and one of the two conference languages (English or Spanish). They will be used to draft the call for papers for the selected sessions.

The following items may be written in any of the three languages:
– The potential opportunities envisaged (publications, partnerships, network expansion),
– The individuals, teams or laboratories targeted (within or outside the CIST),
– A short CV of the session co-facilitators (1/2 page).

Présentation de l’appel

The 5th conference of the International College of Territorial Sciences is proposing to address the theoretical, methodological and practical issues raised by the simultaneous consideration of population, time and territories. These issues relate to two key challenges: (1) the aggregation of individual actions or the attributes of individuals within a population on a territory, and (2) the integration of the temporal dimension into the dynamics of populations (human and/or animal) and their territorial identification, at different scales.
These questions could be explored through session proposals related to CIST’s research areas:

A&T (Actions & Territorialisations)

The timescales of territorial public action and the timescales of population dynamics are fundamentally incompatible and, therefore, constitute major political issues. How are population dynamics mobilised, put into narrative, through territorial planning or foresight? How do territorialised modes of public intervention attempt to thwart or support these developments?

INFTER (Local Territorial Information)

Avec la révolution numérique, on peut désormais saisir les dynamiques des territoires locaux en temps réel. La multiplication de données issues de capteurs ou sous forme de traces géolocalisées soulève toutefois un ensemble de questions. Comment concrètement recueillir et exploiter de telles données massives ? Quels en sont les apports et les limites ? Quels usages pour quels types d’acteurs ? Que deviennent ces données ? Quel contrôle et quelle participation des usagers à l’élaboration de visions territoriales issues de ces données ?

MEDIA (Medias and Territories)

How does short-term web data interact with long-term territorial representations, especially memory representations? How do the media contribute to preserving, reproducing and transforming territorial imaginations? Which individual or collective actors are involved in the production of media representations of territories? What is the role of the media in the formation of stereotypes about territories, for example about territories in crisis, migratory flows, or their representations of identity?

MIT (Mobilities, Identities and Territories)

Geographical mobility unfurls across different spatial scales (national or international) and involves specific timescales (daily, temporary or permanent migrations). How do these different levels of mobility contribute to the structuring of territories, and vice versa? What theoretical and methodological frameworks enable us to comprehend them simultaneously? How can we go beyond traditional categorisations? What link can be established between migration, territory and identity policies?

PAST (Territories in the Long Run)

The diachrony of interrelations between society and the environment broaches a wide variety of topics (landscape construction, settlement, use/development of resources, risks, etc.). What digital tools for analysis, representation and modelling can be used? How can the juxtaposition of the timescales specific to the different components of a territorial system be analysed? What concepts and approaches can be borrowed from various academic disciplines (geoscience, archaeological sciences, historical sciences, etc.)?

REMOC (Regionalisations, Globalisations, Circulations)

Les processus de régionalisation du Monde (UE, ALENA, ASEAN, mais aussi les nouveaux regroupements tels que le Groupe de Lima, l’Organisation de coopération de Shanghai, l’Alliance du Pacifique, les BRICS, etc.) s’inscrivent dans des registres de temporalité distincts : évolution des institutions, fluctuations économiques et démographiques, mutations des pratiques sociales et des représentations territoriales. En quoi cette régionalisation affecte-t-elle les territoires et les populations concernés ?

SANTE (Territories and Health)

Whether in contexts of ageing populations and declining territories in developed countries or of high population growth in developing nations, time lies at the heart of health inequalities. What public policies should be implemented to address this issue, both at territorial level (health maps, responses to territorial determinants of health) and at individual level (personal trajectories, lifelong care pathways, chronic diseases, etc.)? Based on what time frames?

Sessions proposed might also approach this Population-Time-Territories triptych from other perspectives and through the lens of other disciplines. Organised in collaboration with the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and Ined, on the site of the new Campus Condorcet, this 5th conference will provide an opportunity for fostering interdisciplinary relations, particularly with demographers, lawyers and historians, and for developing others in the field of health and life sciences.

Procedure for evaluating the session proposals

The proposed sessions will be evaluated by the conference’s scientific board, which includes the members of the CIST Scientific Committee and various external individuals. Session proposals will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
– Consistency with the general theme of the conference,
– Openness to multidisciplinarity.
Credit will also be given to:
– Sessions jointly facilitated by researchers belonging to organisations, disciplines, schools of thought, etc.,
– Sessions that are open to international contributions.
