Barcamp will be introduced at the 2019 ALCAS Conference to encourage more interaction and engagement as it provides flexible space and time for discussion of spontaneously proposed topics. Every conference participant will have 0.5-1 mins to propose a topic that he/she would like to discuss during the initial plenary session.
Afterwards, the audience will signal interest in the topic. If sufficient interest is available, a time-slot and room will be allocated for the open group discussion. As such, we will build a portion of the program directly at the conference.
When you register to attend you will prompted to confirm your interest and what topic you would like to see discussed.
INVITATION FOR ABSTRACTS

We invite you to submit your abstract for presentation or poster under the following themes:
Low-embodied impact structures and liveability Building and infrastructure ratings are driving a more sustainable built environment and promoting the normalisation of LCA and EPDs. Is our Business as Usual becoming low-net impact? What has been achieved? How successful is LCA in addressing great challenges of Australia, such as high GHG emission levels and the liveability of cities?
LCA and EPD applications in due diligence and transparency LCA allows companies to zoom into their processes and products as well as examine the implications of their supply chain. How is it being used to support risk identification and management, transparency and reporting?
Frontiers in LCA Opportunity to communicate and discuss novel and upcoming issues, methodological development, novel practitioner solutions. Scope includes but is not limited to: impact indicators and assessment method, software tools, areas of application, standards and guidelines.
LCA and corporate sustainability Stories of using LCA as a leading tool in the design and implementation of corporate sustainability strategy.
