INTRODUCING: LOCALIZED CONFERENCE HUBS
Following the previous editions of this conference in Hamburg, DE (2018), Vienna, AT (2019) and Groningen, NL (2020), we are focusing on international cooperation now more than ever via Localized Hubs.
What are localized hubs?
Localized hub = 1 organization/university; 1 coordinator; 1 conference session (minimum)
Each hub or place-based group of students and emerging professionals are invited to propose and run activities to complement the #ACMC21 three-day virtual agenda. Each hub will have a coordinator working directly with the ACMC planning group.
What can localized hubs do?
Hubs are invited to foster pre-conference discussions surrounding the 2021 theme of REvisiting Borders and generate local and regional interest for #ACMC21. The supporting hub events can be online or in-person, depending on local management of Covid-19.
There is no set format. Hubs are encouraged to be creative and innovative in their design and how they meaningfully engage with their community. Collaboration between hubs is also highly encouraged. The minimum requirement or commitment for leading a localized hub is: 1 dedicated coordinator to liaise with ACMC organizers; involvement of 1 organization, cooperative, or university; and 1 planned conference session.
