2022 PA-DE ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture
April 8 & 9, 2022
Wilmington, Delaware

OPEN CALL FOR CONFERENCE PRESENTATION PROPOSALS

The Pennsylvania-Delaware Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (PA-DE ASLA) is now accepting presentation proposals for the 2022 PA-DE ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture to be held in person in Wilmington, Delaware. (We plan to offer a virtual component of this conference. Details will be finalized and published in the coming months).

THEME: The Delaware (Host) Section sees this conference as an opportunity to address where Landscape Architecture stands and where we can go from here given that the profession has the ability to impact a variety of crucial and timely issues, including (in no particular order of importance):

  • Climate change and sea level rise
  • Ecological conservation and restoration
  • Cultural and historic landscape preservation and interpretation
  • Social justice and diverse perspectives
  • Innovation in infrastructure, transportation and urban planning
  • Delaware’s innovative initiatives and projects
  • And more…

If you have a presentation that focuses around these or other topics relevant to the profession of Landscape Architecture, we would welcome your submission of a presentation proposal.

FORMAT: PA-DE ASLA and the Delaware Section are eager to welcome chapter members and neighboring or affiliated colleagues back to an in-person conference in April 2022. We plan for “traditional” classroom learning and local off-site, outdoor field sessions. Additionally, we plan to record components of the in-person conference for post-conference on-demand viewing, though details are still being determined. Potential speakers should be open to and plan to give live, in-person presentations and should be willing to potentially have their presentations recorded for future viewing.

The planning committee will entertain 60-minute or 90-minute presentations; please designate in your submission which you prefer or which your content warrants.

The Committee is requesting presentation proposals at this point. After the deadline, the Committee will review submissions and notify selected speakers via email. Selected speakers/presentations will then be contacted for additional information, as necessary.

Submission Deadline: 11:59pm on Monday, October 25, 2021

[Submissions must be made electronically by the deadline. Acceptance notifications will also be made electronically.]
