Call for papers for the 3 rd Swiss Mobility Conference
19/20th of November 2018 – Lausanne

The Swiss Mobility Conference (SMC) is the result of collaboration between the urban sociology chairs (EPFL) and geography of mobilities (UNIL). The objective of SMC is to provide a place for discussion and debate for researchers in humanities and social sciences working on various forms of mobility. Presentations will address the mobilities in their diversity (housing choices, modal practices, multi-local dwelling, tourism, etc.).

They can register in the following research areas:
- theoretical debates (and in particular the contributions of social theories to the study of mobilities)
- methodological innovations (using mobile methods)
- public policy and decision making in mobility
- regulation of mobility and its tools
- the actors and their logics of action
- the norms and values underlying mobility and social inequality
- temporality and spatiality of mobility
- mobility prospective

Abstracts of 3000 signs, must be sent by June 30, 2018 at the following address: [email protected]
