We are happy to invite you to hand in a paper to the IALE-Russia online Conference, held from 14th to 18th of September 2020, for the category “Land assessment and planning” – “Envisioning multifunctional sustainably productive and biodiversity friendly landscapes: Mainstreaming Nature Based Solutions beyond demonstration projects in urban and rural areas”. (Find further details here: https://iale-russia.ru/index.php/en/conference-topics)

As a special offer, selected proposals for the session will be invited to submit a paper in the upcoming special issue on “Urban agriculture and resilient cities” of the MDPI publication ‘Smart Cities’. The chairs will search for a similar possibility for publications in rural landscapes.

It is possible to do either a long oral presentation (15 min) or a flash-presentation (5 min). The abstracts for flash presentations will be accepted until 31 August 2020. Flash-presentation is a 5-minute talk which we offer as a substitute for a poster. We reckon it will get better feedback in an online format than a poster could do.

The deadline for abstracts submission for a long presentation is 15 July 2020.

The online Format provides better opportunities for perception of presentations and their further discussion. As an option, the presentation can be recorded and sent to the organizers in advance to ensure the stable display during the session.
