Dokonara 2014 will be hosted in Liechtenstein from 14 to 16 September. Bookings can be made up to 4 July.



Doctoral students of all universities and colleges of further education are warmly invited to attend an interdisciplinary dialogue about their work in progress, also involving the scientific discussion of topical concepts and issues, on the campus of the University of Liechtenstein. The organiser of the event is Professor Peter Droege, holder of the Chair for Sustainable Spatial Development at the University of Liechtenstein. 

The three-day event is aimed in particular at students whose interests focus on sustainability in the fields of spatial development and planning, municipal architecture, urban and regional planning, architecture and landscape planning, soil science and ecology, regional studies, geography and social and cultural anthropology.

Renewable – economical on resources – resilient

In the year 2014, Dokonara is dedicated to resilience strategies for regions, metropolitan regions, regional border areas and international territories. The main focus will be on such themes as regenerative energies, resource independence, the region as a carbon sink and reduction of the ecological footprint.  

Specifically, projects such as regional and urban renewable energy systems and infrastructures will feature on the agenda, as well as autonomous municipal energy planning, active house architecture, water-sensitive municipal planning and solar architecture. Not only do the doctoral candidates have the opportunity of submitting their own topics – participants can also select from among all the contributions to the three-day event.

Opportunity for young researchers

Doctoral candidates attending from all over Europe will not only have the chance of presenting their own dissertations to a network of researchers – they can also exchange views with specialists in their subject areas at practically relevant workshops on questions of method and content, and will be given the option of having a specialist article published in a conference volume.  
In addition, the event offers excursions to Best Practice examples in the region, and participants can add 5.0 ECTS credits to their own Ph.D. programmes.

The cost of the three-day event (including meals and conference documentation) comes to EUR 130. Bookings can be sent, including the usual particulars (address, university, expected end of Ph.D. study) along with a summary of 200 to 300 words, to kirsten.steinhofer@uni.li by 4 July 2014 at latest.
