International Transdisciplinarity Conference 2017

Transdisciplinary Research and Education — Intercultural Endeavours

September 11-15, 2017, Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany


What is a Co–conference? The conference model of the future!

The Co–conference format aims to create a virtual space for discussion and engagement with the topic of the ITD Conference 2017. It incorporates various virtual components to connect with the main conference via a live stream (plenary talks, short reports from Co-conferences, contributions and discussions), which makes it possible to participate online.

The goal of this novel conference structure is to overcome distance, to reduce conference travel, to avoid discrimination for economic reasons, and ultimately, to connect people and discourses that focus on transdisciplinary research and education.

Institutions organizing a Co–conference have designed a programme with face–to–face activities on site. Those local events are organized around the ITD_Conference 2017 streams and categories, with a particular focus related to the local interests of each institution/country. These local events will not be streamed live, but complement the contributions of the ITD Conference 2017. Each Co-conference will connect with Lüneburg during specific time slots and present a short summary of the Co-conference discussions.

Co-conferences were organized for the first time during the Integration and Implementation Science Conference in 2013, organized by Gabriele Bammer.
