ASLA Oregon 2013 Symposium: Saturday, June 15

Dear Members and Interested Parties,

The Oregon Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects is seeking presenters for its annual symposium on June 15, 2013, in Portland, Oregon. The theme of the 2013 symposium is. "The Nature of Space." The nature of space is fundamental to how we design, interpret, and plan living environments. This symposium seeks to address current trends, issues, and research on transformative spaces, adaptive reuse, spatial planning in landscape ecology, urban interventions, and evolving issues related to how we perceive and interact with the environment.

The symposium includes three session timeslots, with two concurrent sessions during each timeslot for a total of six potential sessions. ASLA Oregon is seeking 90-minute sessions that explore this theme using a variety of formats: panel discussions, presentations, interactive dialogues. Multi-disciplinary sessions are encouraged, but not required. Continuing education credits will be pursued. Session rooms will be equipped with projection equipment and are set up lecture-style. Presenters are provided complementary symposium registration.

For questions, contact the symposium organizer, Melinda Graham, president-elect, Oregon ASLA, at mgraham@2inkstudio.com. Please use the fillable session proposal form found at http://www.aslaoregon.org/blog/2012/12/18/oregon-asla-call-for-entries-symposium-2013. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
Kurt Lango
President, ASLA Oregon Chapter
