The DOCONF is a bi-annual event in Budapest to meet doctoral tutors and students, to teach each other, to learn from each other. The BME Department of Urban Planning and Design wishes to promote cooperation among doctoral institutions in architecture and urbanism and try to facilitate the academic network building for future generations of scholars through their specific fields of research related to post-socialist urban heritage.
The DOCONF series provides a comparative overview of current doctoral research focusing on the urban challenges related to the inherited physical – built and natural – environment of the post-socialist cities in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), and post-soviet Asia. Those invited include doctoral students, candidates, or post-doctoral researchers (with a PhD/DLA degree earned after the 1st of January 2016) specializing in architecture, urban design, urban planning, or landscape architecture.
The DOCONF gives the chance for young researchers to find relevant international context regarding their research topic, to meet, present, and discuss during the meeting, and to publish a final full paper in the double peer-review DOCONF proceedings. Besides that, you could discover Budapest, as well.
Info related to pandemic: We plan to do an offline meeting. If it won't be possible to realize the DOCONF2021 in Budapest, organizers will decide in mi-July – after the full paper submission but before the final registration – to do it online or postpone.
