"Landscape 2018" conference

This second announcement is a call for papers for the Landscape 2018 conference in Berlin, Germany from March 12th until March 16th, 2018.

Rationale and Aims

Agricultural landscapes are shaped by human activities and are subject to permanent change through the interplay of natural processes, land use and societal developments. Knowledge about the underlying processes of landscape dynamics at all relevant spatial and temporal scales is the prerequisite for sustainable landscape management.

The aim of the conference is to present recent advances in landscape research to enhance the development of sustainable agricultural land use and landscape strategies. The particular objective is to bring together key findings from relevant disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches as well as from basic and application-oriented research.

Scope

The conference focuses on recent scientific work related to:

  • The functioning of landscapes, with a focus on element cycles and microbiomes including approaches to scale up from individual processes to the landscape scale.
  • Sustainable land use practices and appropriate governance systems, which secure the provision of food and fibre as well as other ecosystem services and biodiversity.
  • Advances in science toward the development of an integrated landscape theory.

 

Deadline for abstract submission extende to 9 October 8 a.m. (GMZ)
