quality of life, both in urban and rural environments and in fulfilling
health, well-being and recreational needs of people.
2. The power
of landscape as a development driver
should relate to the influence of landscape resources on spatial
development, e.g. studies showing green areas or landscapes which were
the starting points for development or refurbishment of neighborhoods
landscapes of power

psychological power as the main feature creating identity and sense of
and learning about the power of landscape
Abstracts should deal with
the advancement of teaching and learning practice in landscape
and abstract requirements
These are papers which present results of new
original research not published elsewhere. The abstracts should include
the research question, the context and theory of the problem, the
methodology used, the main results and some broad conclusions supported
with up to 5 key references.
These are papers offering deep reflection, appraisal
and critique of some aspect of landscape architecture: eg. projects by
specific people, programmes, trends, movements etc. The abstracts should
refer to a question which is raised by the author, the context of the
reflection, some original observations and analysis of the aspect and a
number of key conclusions supported with up to 5 key references.
These are papers which aim to advance theory by
exploring and arguing aspects of either current theory or by advancing
new theories, for example. The abstracts should raise a question about
the context of the specific theory under consideration, elaborate on the
theory, present a summary of the main arguments and a number of key
conclusions supported by up to 5 key references.
