The 51st IMCL Conference, titled Making Cities Healthy for All, will take place on June 8-12, 2014 in Portland, Oregon. A limited number of Student Scholarships for Ph.D. students, and Volunteer Positions for Graduate students are available. Both positions waive the student registration fee.
This Conference will be a landmark event, with an unprecedented gathering of world renowned experts in planning, urban design, public health, social sciences, and allied fields. Please see the website for more details - http://www.livablecities.
Scholarships waive the registration fee. They do not offer funds towards expenses.
Volunteers can attend all the sessions they choose. Most responsibilities are in helping exhibitors set up their exhibits, and helping at registration on Sunday, June 8; breaking down exhibits on the Wednesday and Thursday morning; being available (if you have PowerPoint skills) if presenters need technical help (in the sessions of your choice); and helping to man the publications table. Volunteer positions offer great access to speakers and exhibitors.
