Call For Papers

The Scientific Symposium which will take place in Florence (Italy) on the occasion of the 18th ICOMOS General Assembly, from 10 to 14 November 2014, will explore the theme "Heritage and Landscape as Human Values" as briefly illustrated below, according to five sub-themes:
Theme 1: Sharing and experiencing the identity of communities through tourism and interpretation
Theme 2: Landscape as cultural habitat
Theme 3: Sustainability through traditional knowledge
Theme 4: Community-driven conservation and local empowerment
Theme 5: Emerging tools for conservation practice

The Symposium will be open to the public. The papers, among which selected presentations of 20 minutes each and brief interventions of 10 minutes, will form the scientific basis of the Symposium, and will feed into the discussions and resulting recommendations.
Attached please find an overview of the five Symposium sub-themes.
ICOMOS members who wish to propose a paper for one of the five sub-themes, should submit a concise one-page summary (max. 3000 characters), in French or English, by email to by 31 January 2014.

The abstracts should indicate:

- the chosen sub-theme
- three to five keywords that reflect the general theme of the paper
- the author’s name(s), institutional affiliation and contact details (postal address, phone, fax, email, Icomos Membership number-not compulsory).

Proposals will be selected through blind peer-review by the Scientific Committee of the Symposium, which will determine the form of the paper (20 minute presentation or 10 minute intervention) and the sub-theme to which the paper is allocated. The authors of the selected proposals will be informed by 31 June 2014 and will be asked to provide the final text of their papers (max. 15 pages) by 30 September 2014.
