ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

What has science contributed to the implementation of the European Landscape Convention?
And what are the topics for the future of European landscape?

The 10th anniversary of the Florence Convention is occasion to discuss in depth the merits of
landscape science at the forefront of integrated research in a rapidly changing spatial environment. Interdisciplinary contributions explicitly referring to the principles of the Landscape Convention
are especially welcomed.

Four themes are chosen for the parallel sessions:

  • perception studies;
  • landscape identification and typology;
  • effects of policy development on landscape;
  • and participation studies.

Call for papers

Aim of the conference is to discuss cutting-edge research results at the crossroads of sciences and humanities, design and empiricism. Papers will be prepared in advance, and selected as a basis for the debate in the conference. The results of the debate will be presented to the political audience present for the Florence+10 celebrations on 20 October. After the conference the papers will be updated and published in scientific journals.

Organisation

The conference is a joint initiative of UNISCAPE and LANDSCAPE EUROPE. It is a next step in the EUROSCAPE2020 process launched by LANDSCAPE EUROPE in 2008. It is also the first major scientific event promoted by UNISCAPE. Florence is chosen as venue because it hosts the Florence+10 celebrations; it is also the seat of UNISCAPE.
