The CELA Conference

The CELA 2022 Conference, Evolving Norms: Adapting Scholarship to Disruptive Phenomena

The CELA conference is the annual destination for educators and students with an interest in the academic practice of landscape architecture. It includes hundreds of attendees, a number of on-site events and off-site excursions, exhibitors, and three days of essential conversation and celebration of recent research in all aspects of landscape architecture. CELA’s annual conferences have always been a place of connection, reunion, and joy, and we are excited to see the landscape architecture community come together again in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico in 2022.

In light of the tremendous success of the virtual 2021 CELA conference, CELA will incorporate a virtual component to #CELA22. In addition to offering our full in-person event schedule in New Mexico from March 16-19, 2022, we will offer a selection of prerecorded virtual events. A virtual-only registration will be available for #CELA22 that will include the prerecorded virtual events. The in-person registration will include all in-person and virtual programming. Anyone is welcome to propose an in-person or a virtual event for #CELA22. All presentations will be 15 minutes. A limited number of virtual presentations will be available for each track.

The abstract submission period has ended. Thank you to all who submitted their research. The abstract review process will begin in October.

Addressing the Potential Impact of Covid-19:
The CELA prioritizes the health and safety of our conference speakers and attendees. At this time, we are optimistic we will be able to meet face-to-face in March 2022, so we are proceeding with our in-person conference as planned.
That being said, please note The CELA leadership team is closely monitoring health and safety guidelines on the federal, state, and local levels and will follow these recommendations. In the event that we are unable to meet in person, we are working on alternatives and will keep you updated on any decisions.
We hope that, whether we meet in person or virtually, you will join us for our next conference.
