We are pleased to announce the 27th session of the Permanent European Conference for the Study of the Rural Landscape, on “Mountains, uplands, lowlands. European landscapes from an altitudinal perspective” to be held from 5–9 September 2016 in Innsbruck and Seefeld, Tyrol/Austria. Up-to-date information is available on www.pecsrl2016.com , including formats, preliminary programme & topics and important dates.

PECSRL 2016 will be held in the European Alps, but addresses all European mountain and upland landscapes in their more general or specific contexts. We particularly welcome papers on comparative themes related to European mountain areas – be they comparisons between different mountain areas, between mountains and their adjacent areas or between highlands and lowlands – either with a topical or thematic, theoretical or methodological emphasis. We are also looking forward to submissions on topical issues of rural areas in Europe.
A large number of organized sessions are planned on specific themes

There will also be sessions on the general themes of the conference

Deadline for abstracts is:  31 January 2016.
