IALE World Congress Coming to Portland in 2015!

posted Jan 23, 2014, 9:36 AM by

The International Association of Landscape Ecology World Congress together with the US chapter of IALE will host joint meeting in Portland, Oregon from 5th to 10th July, 2015. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the annual US-IALE meeting. 


Portland is easy to access with direct connections to Tokyo, Amsterdam, and most major U.S. and Canadian cities.  Portland also offers excellent light rail and street car connections throughout the city.  The region is widely recognized for its commitment to sustainability and progressive land use planning, which allows immediate access to outdoor recreation, and opportunities to engage with the rich cultural and historical dimensions of the Pacific Northwest landscape.  

Our meeting theme is: Crossing Scales, Crossing Borders: Global Approaches to Complex Challenges.  We hope to highlight research and activities that address globally relevant topics and that works across scales (what landscape ecologists have always done) and crosses borders (be they disciplinary, political, patch, or other).  

Local OrganizersDr. Vivek Shandas, (Portland State University) and Dr. Anita Morzillo (Oregon State University)

Program Committee: The Program Committee will be chaired by Robert Scheller (Portland State University) and includes Hong He (University of Missouri) and Jennifer Allen and Geoffrey Duh (Portland State University).
