The main theme of MMV10 is "Managing outdoor recreation experiences in the Anthropocene – Resources, markets, innovations". This theme reflects how management of visitor practises in natural surroundings become increasingly dependent on a knowledge-based application of human and natural resources.
A better understanding of market transformations and emerging trends in outdoor recreation and nature-based tourism is required in a dynamic world. In the same vein, there is a need to suggest creative and innovative solutions to handle impending management challenges and opportunities in protected and recreational areas.
We welcome proposals under the proposed sub-themes of the MMV10, listed in the right-hand column. You can also propose a special session by following the steps below.
All proposals for oral presentations, poster presentations and special sessions should be sent to the MMV organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org , no later than the deadlines listed below.
We are now accepting proposals for special sessions. Please use the subject "MMV10_session_proposal" in your e-mail when you submit.
Deadline: January 31st , 2020.
The MMV conference encourages interdisciplinary dialogues and interactions between academics and practitioners. Participants who wish to organize special sessions are encouraged to submit proposals to the conference organizers. These may include, but are not limited to, oral presentations on a specific topic, panel or round table discussions, films, or video presentations.
Special sessions typically have presenters committed in advance by the session organizer, but can also be organized as open sessions on a certain topic that include presenters assigned by the conference organizers.
The proposal to organize a special session should include:
- the session title
- a description of purpose and content (300 words)
- the name, affiliation and contact details of the person organizing the session
- the names of proposed participants (if participants are committed in advance)
Organizers will be responsible for maintaining primary contact with the MMV program chairs, contacting the participants to ensure they are registered for the meeting, and serve as the chair (or designating a person to chair) for the session. Participants in organized sessions that include oral presentations should submit an abstract according to the instructions below.
Sessions at the MMV conference will be scheduled in blocks of 120 minutes. The program organizers may reject proposed organized sessions that are outside the aim and scope of the MMV conference or otherwise judged to be inappropriate.
Most sessions will consist of oral presentations. Abstracts for oral presentations will be accepted from late 2019/early 2020 (maximum 1000 words + one figure or table - instructions to be published later).
Please submit here by using the subject "MMV10_abstract” in your e-mail.
Deadline: 31st March 2020
Depending on the number of participants, the conference organizers may limit the number of presentations to one oral presentation (participants can be listed as a co-author on more than one presentation).
The session formats has not yet been decided, but as a rough guide expect a 15 minutes presentation followed by 5 minutes for questions/discussions.
By May 15th 2020, you will receive feedback on your abstract from one of our conference reviewers. Please follow the instructions carefully and resubmit a revised abstract by May 31st.
MMV also welcomes poster presentations. Abstracts for poster presentations will be accepted from late 2019/early 2020 (instructions for posters to be published later).
Please submit here by using the subject "MMV10_poster” in your e-mail.
Deadline: 31st March 2020
Poster presentations are an opportunity for conference attendees to review and discuss their work in a more relaxed context. There will be designated timeslots for poster presentations in the conference program.
The instructions for a poster submission are similar to those of oral presentations.
By May 15th, 2020, you will receive feedback on your poster abstract from one of our conference reviewers. Please follow the instructions carefully and resubmit a revised abstract by May 31st.
A committee will award prizes for the best posters.
