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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full proposals have to be submitted in Spring 2019.
