International conference on "Mountains: Cultures, Landscapes and Biodiversity"

Baku, Azerbaijan
From: 10.05.2019 to: 12.05.2019

In cooperation with International Climbing and Mountaineering (UIAA), Western Caspian University is organizing an international conference on “Mountains: Cultures, Landscapes and Biodiversity” which will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Mountainous regions worldwide are affected by the impacts of an unrestrained exploitation of resources (due to heavy mining and intensive farming) and an ever-expanding tourism industry that seems to know now bounds. These developments put pressure on the biodiversity and on the population that has traditionally occupied them. Against this background, the objective of our conference is to bring together academics, environmentalists, biologists, tourism experts and other interested professionals in order to discuss these issues and to find new and creative solutions to the problems that are increasingly destabilizing many of the world’s most impressive regions.

Panel topics will cover the following areas:

  1. Mountain Ecology
  2. Mountain Landscapes
  3. Mountain Cultures
  4. Mountain Biodiversity: uniqueness and significance

Deadline for registration: 28 February, 2019

Deadline for papers: 20 March, 2019

Deadline for paper acceptance: 10 April, 2019
