National Parks Austria (www.nationalparksaustria.at) and Hohe Tauern National Park (www.hohetauern.at) would like to encourage you to participate in the 6th International Symposium for Research in Protected Areas 2017 on 2-3 November 2017 in Salzburg, Austria.
For programme details, the registration form and further useful information please visit: www.nationalparksaustria.at/symposium2017

DEADLINE for registration: 4 October 2017

The conference will cover topical research and concepts e.g. on wilderness, biodiversity, species protection, ecology and the function of running waters, the effects of climate change and the role of long-term monitoring. In addition, issues of applied conservation research, protected area management and sustainable development will be debated. Many of the research papers will be presented here for the first time and will be published in the conference volume.

The symposium provides a perfect opportunity for encounters across disciplinary and protected area boundaries, where participants can share and exchange views and findings and intensify the dialogue between researchers and practitioners.

Fringe events include a public talk on Thursday evening on “Whatsalp Wien – Nizza 2017. Eine Fussreise durch die Alpen und ihre Grossschutzgebiete” (Whatsalp Vienna – Nice 2017. A trip by foot through the Alps and their large protected areas) and the “Nationalparks Austria Science Award 2017” gala on Friday evening.

We look forward to welcoming you in autumn in Salzburg!
