This is the Basic Concept and Management Principle of the East Asia Planning History (‘EAPH’ hereafter) Prize (‘Prize’ hereafter) upon which the EAPH Prize Committee shall act.
The Prize is established in order to foster research in the field of planning history of East Asia among the younger generation of researchers, and to expand the IPHS membership in the region.
One Prize will be awarded at the biennial conference of the IPHS (‘IPHS Conference’ hereafter) for outstanding research in the planning history of East Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, the two Koreas, Macau, Mongolia and Taiwan) published in English in the form of a refereed article in an academic journal (not in the conference proceedings) in the previous two calendar years before an IPHS Conference (thus from January 2014 to December 2015 in the case of the 2016 IPHS Conference), by a native, citizen, and resident of a nation in East Asia under 45 years old as of the deadline date. The Prize includes a cash award of 250 GBP.
- The Prize winner shall be a single author.
- ‘Planning history’ means the history of urban and regional planning. It shall not be understood too widely to mean simply urban history, urban development or social history.
- Worthy scholarship not selected for the Prize may be designated ‘honorable mention’ awards.
- ‘One Prize per conference’ is the basic rule. No Prize may be awarded if no outstanding publication is found.
The Prize winner shall be an IPHS member at the time of awarding the Prize. The Prize winner shall attend the IPHS Conference in order to receive the Prize and to present his/her work at the Conference.
- A non-member who is selected as a prospective Prize winner should become an IPHS member by the time of being awarded the Prize.
- If the prospective Prize winner cannot attend the conference, the Prize may not be awarded to him/her. Travel and other costs associated with attending the IPHS Conference are at the charge of the Prize winner.
- As one of the purposes of the Prize is to expand membership, it is expected that the Prize winner will become an active and leading IPHS member in future.
The EAPH Prize Committee (‘Committee’ hereafter) is established by IPHS in order to select the Prize winner according to the Basic Concept and Management Principle as well as the spirit of the Prize’s establishment.
The following Committee members are appointed by the President:
- Shun-ichi J. Watanabe (Former Professor, Tokyo University of Science, Japan), Chair
- Fukuo Akimoto (Professor Emeritus, University of Kyushu, Japan), Vice-Chair
- Carola Hein (Professor, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands)
- Andre Sorensen (Professor, University of Toronto, Canada)
- Anthony G. O. Yeh (Professor, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong)
