ISCN 2018 Presentations and Posters

The 2018 International Sustainable Campus Conference at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, June 11-13th in Stockholm.

The theme of ISCN 2018 is:  Sustainable Development: Acting with Purpose

We are excited to showcase the diversity of sustainability in higher education at ISCN 2018.  This year we have “crowdsourced” content to be presented at the conference.  Our open call for abstracts yielded amazing projects that will be shared at the conference in various formats – posters, “converstations,” presentations, and breakout sessions.

All selected presenters, please note these details:

  • Presenters using slides - please send your slide deck to the ISCN Secretariat (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by 29 May.  Also bring a copy with you to the conference on a memory stick.  PowerPoint slides should be formatted to 16:9 size.
    • Rapid Round and Award Finalist presenters - these are fast-paced TED style talks of 7 minutes in duration each. Please keep slides to a max of 6. These sessions will be timed
    • Converstations - slides are not recommended for this session. Presenters will be in conversation with a small group of participants and then groups will rotate. Please plan any visual aids accordingly.
    • Breakout session presenters are to be organized and coordinated by the respective breakout session facilitator. Please send in your slides (if any) to the ISCN Secretariat by 29 May.
  • Poster presenters - please bring your printed poster with you to the conference. You will be assigned a poster space and presentation day upon check-in on day 1.  Poster sessions will take place on 12 and 13 June.
    • poster size: standing (vertical) A1 (84.1cm x 59.4cm)
