After the previous successful conferences, the Landscape Centre of WSL organizes again the "Young Landscape Research" conference. This is aimed at young researchers and designers who are working on projects (bachelor's and master's theses, dissertations, postdoctoral projects, etc.) related to landscape and would like to present their results in short presentations. In addition, the conference offers the opportunity to exchange ideas with experienced landscape researchers.
If the epidemiological situation allows, the conference will be held on-site at WSL, otherwise online.
Deadline for registration: 13, September 2021 www.wsl.ch/zentrum-landschaft
