Call for Proposals: Frontiers of Prevention III April 17-18, 2020
We are now accepting proposals for our annual international conference. Submit your proposal today!
Frontiers of Prevention III has two linked objectives. The first is a critical assessment of the status of existing genocide and atrocity prevention mechanisms, and an exploration of emergent mechanisms and actors in the global effort at atrocity prevention. The second is to organize an open forum where leading academic researchers with research programs dedicated to prevention can meet with practitioners, both in government and non-governmental service, fostering critical exchange and finding new grounds for knowledge exchange and collaboration.
Logistical Information (additional details to follow)
Registration will open for the 2020 conference, Frontiers of Prevention III, after we close the Call for Proposals.
Once the program has been arranged we will post the schedule here.
Frontiers of Prevention III takes place in the Binghamton University Downtown Center (UDC) [Google map pin]. This is Binghamton's single-building downtown campus, and is not to be confused with Binghamton University's main (Vestal, NY) campus [Goolge map pin], which is located approximately five miles west of Binghamton, NY. When you receive the conference program we will also include a map with all relevant locations.
UDC Address: 67 Washington St, Binghamton, NY 13902
Travel to Binghamton
Since the workshop begins promptly on the morning of Friday, April 17, we request that you plan on arriving in Binghamton on Thursday, April 16. The workshop continues until the evening of Saturday, April 18, so you should plan on a stay of three nights, with a departure on Sunday April 19.
Travel to Binghamton NY can be challenging, but we are prepared to assist you in any way we can with information and assistance in arranging your travel.
Consult the University's detailed maps and directions for arriving at the University Downtown Center.
The Greater Binghamton Airport (BGM) is currently serviced only by Delta Airlines. Two flights (commuter jet) arrive daily from Detroit International Airport, one in the early evening (around 5:20 PM) and the second in the evening (around 10:20 PM).
If you are planning to fly on Delta Airlines to Binghamton, the trip via taxi or Uber/Lyft from Greater Binghamton Airport to the University Downtown Center and Conference Hotel should cost around $30.00.
You may also plan to fly into either Syracuse Airport (SYR) or Ithaca Airport (ITH). Both of these have jet service from multiple airlines. Both Syracuse and Ithaca airports are approximately one hour by car from Binghamton.
Shortline Bus Company and Greyhound offer regular bus service from New York City's Port Authority Bus Terminal to Binghamton. The travel time is approximately 3.5 hours. The Conference Hotel is either a very short cab ride or a ten-minute walk to the Conference Hotel.
