Call for Posters | Mountain tourism and human impacts - Sustainable Mountains Summit 2018

2017 08 17 09.19.25MSc and PhD students conducting thesis research work on mountain tourism and recreation are invited to submit poster proposals for the Sustainable Summits Conference (SSC 2018), 12-14 June in Chamonix, France.

Poster proposals should closely align with the conference themes: 1) Role of  high mountains in today's societies; 2) Climate change: high mountains on the front line; or 3) Human activities in the high mountains: impacts and solutions. A small select number of poster proposals will be chosen for presentation at the conference, with prizes available for best judged posters by conference attendees.

The conference not only provides a useful platform in which to showcase research results, but also provides an excellent networking and dialogue exchange opportunity with other actors outside of the scientific community,  including practitioners and the mountaineering communities at large. Students wishing to present their research in this dedicated poster session, must first complete the online form to register poster proposals for review and pre-selection. Poster proposals should include a title and abstract in English of no more than 200 words, describing key conceptual and/or analytical framework(s), methods use and key results.

Submission deadline for poster proposal abstracts has been extended until midnight (CET)  Friday 13 April  2018 (new date)
