National Parks Austria & Hohe Tauern National Park

02-041117, Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Salzburg, Austria

At this symposium researchers, protected areas managers, as well as individuals from government, business, non-governmental organizations and the general public, who are interested in protected areas, may present and discuss topics which are highly significant for protected areas and are currently taken up by research. The manifold aspects of the interrelation between protection aims, protected area management and the impacts on nature, society and the regional economy in times of transition form the general thematic base of this international conference, held every four years since 1996.

2-stage Call

In order to identify current issues of relevance for both research and protected areas, the organizers of the Symposium invite all interested individuals, institutions, protected areas, networks and initiatives to propose topics and contributions to this event in two stages: First, we are asking you now to propose session topics. Second, in early 2017 you will be invited to submit presentations for the definitive themed sessions. The conference programme will be finalized by the end of June 2017.

Call for Themed Sessions

First, please, suggest topics for themed sessions. A themed session can be organized as a series of presentations, as a workshop or as a chaired discussion and will last 1.5 hours (or 2x1.5 hours).
