IALE 2017 European Congress From pattern and process to people and action

 Call for papers: IALE Europe and Ghent University are pleased to invite you to Ghent for the IALE 2017 European Congress. The theme of the congress reflects that landscape ecology as a meeting point - where pattern and process meet people and action - is seen as a way of thinking when dealing with European landscapes. We want to emphasise the integration of pattern and process as a biophysical component of landscape ecology with people and action, applying social and cultural approaches. This requires a true interaction between natural and social sciences and between science, policy and practice.

Call for papers

There is an open call for papers in all symposia of the congress. Abstract submissions for presentations or posters are welcome from people working in research, policy and practice. Abstracts are limited in length to 3000 characters (excluding references). Beside this text, you may also upload one A4 page of images and/or tables. Depending on the symposium organisers, contributors whose abstract is selected, might be invited to submit a longer paper. All abstracts will be published in the congress proceedings as an eBook and print-on-demand hard copy. To submit a paper, visit the congress website, www.iale2017.eu and register your details.

You are very welcome to contact the congress organisers (info@iale2017.eu) to discuss your ideas or if you are not sure which symposium you should submit your paper to. The deadline to submit papers is 3 March 2017.
