The 2011 US-IALE Annual Symposium will be held in in Portland, Oregon. The theme of the 2011 Symposium is Sustainability in Dynamic Landscapes. Meeting dates are April 3-7, 2011. Portland offers numerous amenities that we believe will provide an excellent meeting experience. The city is widely recognized for its commitment to sustainability and progressive land use planning. The meeting venue is Green Seal Certified.
Portland and the Pacific Northwest offer a beautiful setting for the 2011 Symposium and outings. Portland itself is rich in parks and recreation opportunities. Within the Pacific Northwest region exist some of the most diverse and scenic landscapes including the Columbia River Gorge, Pacific Coast, the Willamette Valley, and Cascade Mountains. Diverse ecosystems exist within the region including temperate rain forests, drier forest types, alpine areas, coastal beaches, high deserts, and low-lying valleys. Regional industries include wine, hops, grass seed, Christmas trees, forestry, outdoor tourism, high tech, shoes and apparel, fishing, and shipping.
The conference program will place an emphasis on landscape sustainability. We look forward to welcoming you to the 2011 US-IALE Symposium in beautiful Portland, Oregon!
