Besides, the organization organises for the participants a guided trip to the Rio Tinto mines in the Huelva province on October, the 27th.
On the morning, there will be two conferences which will be presented by two experts who have an international scientific fame:

On the 26, the communications and posters will be presented and debated within workshops.
We remember you that the thematic fields planned for the communications or posters are the following ones:
- A. Participative research-action applied to territorial sustainable development.
- B. Methods and tools of participative research-action applied to territorial sustainable development.
- C. Analysis of Experiences of the Participative Research-Action applied to diagnosis, plannification, management and evaluation of territorial projects.
The posters can consist in the description of experiences, whereas in the communications the analytical approaches that reflect a genuine collaboration between researchers and territorial actors of social, economic and environmental development will be privileged. The selected communications will take part in a new selection process so as to be included in the first volume of the international review of territorial intelligence, created by a consortium of European universities.
So as to facilitate the debates and to promote participation, a English-Spanish and French-Spanish translation is planned in the plenary sessions and in some workshops, especially the most focused on the practical issues linked to territorial intelligence development that concern the actors the most.
It will be a pleasure to meet you in Huelva in Octobre 2007!
