IALE World Congress 2019 - Call for Symposia!



Submission is now open for proposals to present symposia at the 10th IALE world congress that will be held in Milan (Italy) on 2019, July 1-5. The deadline for submitting symposium proposals is 2018, June 30.

The conference theme is ‘Nature and society facing the Anthropocene: challenges and perspectives for landscape ecology’. This can be interpreted very broadly, to address, among other topics: future landscape scenarios, ecosystem services evaluation and quantifications, metric for landscapes, monitoring habitat and landscapes, new landscapes (seascapes, subterranean landscapes; artificial habitats …), energy and food landscapes, biodiversity conservation in human dominated landscapes; history of landscapes, road ecology; soundscape ecology; social impact of landscape policies; impact on landscapes of society pressures; panarchy and resilience at landscape scales; new technologies for landscape monitoring; nature based solutions and green infrastructure.

Anthropocene is a new world, but the concept is familiar for landscape ecologists. The “total human ecosystem” proposed by Zev Naveh, acknowledges the role of Homo sapiens in moving the equilibria of Earth system. This perspective, with a dramatic change of speediness and magnitude of ecological processes and human action is a challenge for landscape ecology. New landscapes, novel human behaviors, unexpected challenges may contribute to rethinking ecological laws and to suggests new good practices for stakeholders and decision-makers.
