PROPOSALS WELCOME FOR ENHR CONFERENCE CITY 2021
The ENHR Coordination Committee (CC) would now like to begin discussions with research institutes or research centres which would be interested in organising an ENHR conference somewhere in Europe in 2021.

Please express your interest as soon as possible by stating your preference of year and whether you would be able to organize the conference in either year.

A formal proposal for the year 2021 should be submitted by March 1st, 2019 to the ENHR Office (ENHR@tudelft.nl) based on the ENHR-application form (to be requested at ENHR@tudelft.nl). In the CC meeting in the spring of 2019 candidates will be asked to present their proposal. The Coordination Committee will make a final decision after the presentation(s).

Guidelines for ENHR conferences are available on the ENHR website (www.enhr.net/guidelines_conferences.php (for members only)). These guidelines include a description of how such conferences are generally organised and what an application to host an ENHR conference should contain.

Application should contain information about:
  • the date of the conference
  • the profile of the organising institute and its reasons for hosting the conference
  • a proposed conference theme
  • a statement on academic quality
  • former experiences in hosting conferences
  • a budget which clarifies how to ensure the viability
  • accessibility and affordability and hotel capacity of the location
  • attractiveness of the location for housing researchers (what is there to be seen, esp. regarding to housing issues)
  • the ability to attract an audience usually of 300-600 people. If a smaller conference is envisaged, a clear statement of the planned scale should be presented
  • the availability of enough assistants (as students or junior researchers) during the conference
  • the creation of a well organised conference webpage, which is maintained and updated on a regular basis
  • the establishment of a Local Organising Committee (LOC).

Applications will be evaluated by the Coordination Committee based on these criteria. Affordability of the conference to the participants will be an important criterion.

Participants from all parts of Europe should be able to participate in the conference. Therefore, while setting the fees the organisers should take the affordability of the conference (travel costs, hotel accommodation and fees) into account.

Ideally some conferences should have lower fees and fees should preferably not exceed the fee of former conferences, as shown in the table below.



Research institutes or research centres which are interested in organising a conference in 2021 are encouraged to contact ENHR Chairman Peter Boelhouwer (p.j.boelhouwer@tudelft.nl).
