IALA distributes awards to members of IALA who are in the position of an early academic career and who provide a significant contribution to promoting collaboration in the interdisciplinary arena within Landscape Archaeology. For more information on the Travel Award, check the paragraph below.
In the future, when IALA is growing, we expect to offer also awards for article processing charges for papers that present highly qualified interdisciplinary research related to Landscape Archaeology.
The Travel Award is awarded biannually to the presenting author of the best abstract submitted for participitation in the next LAC conference series. The award supports (in part) travel expenditures to the location of the LAC conference. The price is awarded to undergraduate or postgraduate students (Bachelor/Masters/PhD).
Abstracts are evaluated for their quality, value and novelty with respect to interdisciplinarity within Landscape Archaeology. Abstracts are assessed and evaluated directly by selected members of the Board and/or Advisory Board of IALA.
The Travel Awards go into action as of the timing of the Landscape Archaeology Conference in 2020 (LAC2020), since we are a young association and need to grow with members first. We expect to gain new members during LAC 2018 in Durnham/ Newcastle: we will decide on the award process further during the simultaneous General Assembly.
