Call for the European Congress 2021

Who wants to host the IALE 2021 European Landscape Ecology Congress?

Expression of interest

IALE-Europe is launching a call for proposals to host the next IALE European Congress in 2021. The European Congress takes place every four years. In this millennium, already five editions were organised: Stockholm/Tartu (Sweden/Estonia, 2001), Faro (Portugal, 2005), Salzburg (Austria, 2009), Manchester (UK, 2013) and Ghent (Belgium, 2017).

The next European Congress is considered to be organized by (a) national chapter(s) and/or universities, institutions, landscape related networks. Also, countries without a national chapter are very much encouraged, since the organisation will be in close collaboration with IALE-Europe. 

We are looking forward to receiving expressions of interest before 15 January 2019 by sending an email to info@iale-europe.eu
