Conference Information

The conference organizers are planning on organizing IST 2021 along a hybrid format to allow both in-person and online interactions between the community. The hybrid conference format means participation and interaction will be available from around the world (the final conference format is subject to change according to the development of the global Covid-19 situation). During the abstract submission process, we will ask all authors to indicate if they are planning on presenting their work in-person or online.

Newcomers & early career session

A newcomers & early career session will be held on the afternoon of October 5, 2021. This session traditionally provides an overview of international transition studies and their highlights. The aim is to introduce researchers who are not yet familiar with socio-technical sustainability transitions to this vibrant community, and to explore complementarities with related research fields, perspectives and approaches. The event is organized by STRN's Network of Early career researchers in Sustainability Transitions (NEST).

For an introduction to transitions research, check out NESTS' webinar series. Check out recent activities and opportunities on the NEST blog, and follow @transitionsnest on Twitter.
