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. 

Young Researcher Award

The Young Reseacher Award is awarded biannually to the presenting author of the best abstract submitted for participitation in the next LAC conference series. 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.

Dissertation Award

One of the aims of IALA is to support young landscape archaeology researchers and to foster the collaboration between our members and within the discipline. In order to achieve this, we want to draw your attention to the IALA dissertation price (3 awards each worth 300 EUR). If you have a student or project colleague who should be known throughout our community and who has just finished (within the last year) their PhD on a landscape archaeological topic.

Please send your nomination to the IALA email address: Subject: “Dissertation Price”; attachment: letter of recommendation and link to the Phd. Our executive- and advisory board will decide about the laureates and hand over the prices during the official IALA session at the LAC2021.

Deadline: 1st of March 2021

We are looking forward to receiving your nominees.
