7th Hungarian Landscape Ecology Conference
The Institute of Geography and Geology of the Faculty of Sciences and Informatics of the University of Szeged and the U-GEO Foundation organises the
7th Hungarian Landscape Ecology Conference – Interdisciplinary landscape research in the 21st century
between 25-27 May 2017.
We cordially invite to the conference all professionals working in the fields of landscape research and landscape planning, or any related fields dealing with human activity closely related to the landscape (e.g. nature conservation, agriculture, water management, forestry, etc).
The conference aims to enable the exchange of experiences and networking of professionals (both theorists and practitioners) working in the different fields related to landscape ecology (e.g. geographers, ecologists, foresters, landscape architects, water and agricultural engineers, public administration employees, decision makers ...). We hope to create an occasion for the representatives of all these professions to present their relevant results and the practical applicability of these results and to discuss the current challenges and main trends in landscape research. Based on the presentations, the materials recommended by the Scientific Committee of the conference will be given the chance to be published in international and Hungarian scientific journals.
At the conference the participants can present their results in plenary lectures and thematic sessions. The exact titles of the thematic sessions will be defined on the basis of the abstracts submitted with the applications. The preparation of the re-establishment of the Hungarian Chapter of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE) will take place as a side event of the conference. In connection with this, one day of the conference will include plenary lectures held in English by renowned guests. At the end of the conference, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a short field trip.
