ISIE’s Second Annual Online Symposium  

‘Best Practices in International Exposition Designs’ 

23-24 March 2023 

CFP: Submission Deadline: 30 November 2022 



The Institute for the Study of International Expositions (ISIE: invites abstracts for day one of its upcoming two-day online symposium ‘Best Practices in International Exposition Designs.’


ISIE is a recently established global interdisciplinary network of researchers interested in the design, promotion, reception, and consequence of the world’s fairs and expositions held since 1851. Though rooted in the history of architecture, science, diplomacy, art, and technology, our members hail from many disciplines and we welcome all those interested in exploring the many intersecting aspects of international expositions. The 2023 ISIE symposium will bring scholars, professionals, and enthusiasts together to learn from the past and to generate new ideas and practices relating to the design of future international expositions. Day one of our two-day symposium will focus on lessons learned from earlier fairs. Day two will feature presentations from invited participants and explore  lessons learned from Expo 2020 in Dubai.


Graduate students and emerging scholars are encouraged to apply. For more information and to submit a proposal, please send a 250-300 word abstract and a 2-page CV to the conference through the ISIE website:
