Conference Theme: Re-creating landscape and culture in a time of global change
Re-creating landscape and culture in a time of global change recognizes the interconnections between people and places across scales from local to global. At one level, the theme is about the resource extraction and economic activity affecting ecosystems as areas of profound natural beauty and traditional culture. At another level, the theme recognizes that landscapes are in a continuous state of change. The pace of change may vary considerably from place to place, with some locations experiencing rapid transition and others being re-created slowly through the ways they are represented variably as places of nature, recreation, culture, beauty and production and wilderness. The theme builds on previous ISSRM Symposia themes and brings together a suite of interconnected sub-themes.
Organized Session Proposals
A call for organized session proposals will be sent in September of 2019 and are due November 26, 2019. Organized Sessions represent an opportunity to bring together a group of scholars to present and discuss work focusing on a particular integrative theme or topic. These sessions can be structured in multiple ways:
Panels and paper sessions will last 90 minutes. Organizer(s) should recruit and receive commitments from participants in advance of proposal submission, and include details regarding who will participate and what they will be doing as part of the session proposal. Organized sessions will be highlighted and given priority in the program.
A call for abstract submissions will be sent out November 1, 2019 and are due January 31, 2019. We do not anticipate an extension beyond that date and strongly encourage you to submit your abstracts well before the deadline! If you have extenuating circumstances that prohibit you from submitting by the deadline, please email [email protected]. We will accept late abstract on a case-by-case basis. Abstracts will be reviewed in the order they are received. To facilitate early registration and travel planning, we will make every effort to send decision notifications regarding acceptance of abstracts to authors by February 28.
We encourage submissions that are relevant to the symposium theme and those that focus on the interactions between social and ecological systems. Individuals will be limited to serving as lead presenter on only one oral paper presentation. This does not include co-authorship and individuals may present both an oral paper presentation and organize a session, present a poster, or serve on a panel.
Guidelines for Abstracts:
Abstracts should be in paragraph form, without bullet points. Additionally, the abstract body should include details regarding the background, purpose, methods, results, and conclusions. Please also indicate the theory/analytical framework for the work and provide a description of the research methods used.
