We have the honour of inviting you to the EURORURAL '14 conference on EUROPEAN COUNTRYSIDE WITHIN the POST-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY. It is the 4th of Moravian rural conferences organised by the Department of Applied and Landscape Ecology, Faculty of Agronomy, Mendel University in Brno. The aims of the conference are as follows: to map European rural research and particular interests of investigators, to gain a space for presentation of contemporary knowledge about rural research, to continue in the tradition of international conferences dedicated to rural problems, to support intra-personal contacts among experts of different disciplines dealing with rural problems, to present South Moravian rural landscape. The conference is aimed at relatively complex view of rural problems from different viewpoints (ecology, geography, demography, sociology, economy, territorial planning), less at research of specific problems in detail. The conference follows the IGU Regional Conference in Kraków. Both the events will be connected with an excursion Kraków – Brno (within the IGU Conference) held on August 23-24.

The conference is open for all scientists dealing with rural matters from universities, research institutions or other public or private bodies from European countries and around the world.
