The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) invites qualified experts to submit abstracts for oral presentations (concurrent sessions, 45 minutes in length) to be made at the upcoming 2016 CSLA Congress scheduled to be held in Winnipeg from June 23-25, 2016. Presentations are scheduled on June 24 and 25 and we expect 200 to 250 delegates to be present.

The theme of the 2016 Congress is “Home: Locally Inspired.” Bringing the focus back to the local, this Congress will ask individuals to contemplate the influences of our work as landscape architects and its effects on the communities that we serve in order to improve all of our lives. How do we design/build our home for ourselves or for others? At what scale do we perceive our home and our community, and what influences it? What does it mean to call a place our home?

Presentations which are audience-interactive, include partnerships with other professions, and/or demonstrate innovation and creativity are encouraged.

Presenters shall prepare to have sufficient copies of any handout(s) to meet the numbers expected at the presentation, at his/her own cost. All presenters at the Congress will be required to register for the Congress in the same manner as all Congress delegates, and to pay applicable registration fees, prior to publication of the program. Cut-off dates for presenter registration will be provided upon notification of acceptance. Failure to register by these dates will result in the presenter being removed from the program and replaced with another speaker.

Note that laptop, projector and screens will be available during each session. Presenters must bring their presentations, in Power Point format, on a memory stick to be loaded on the local computer before the presentation.

The submission deadline is Friday, November 20, 2015 at 4:00pm EST.
