The University of Aveiro is proud to announce the International Conference on Rural Tourism:

“Re-inventing rural tourism and the rural tourism experience – Conserving, innovating and co-creating for sustainability”

Dates: 5th-7th September 2013

Location: University of Aveiro, Portugal

Submission Deadline: February 15, 2013 - Full paper (max. 5,000 words) and poster abstracts (max. 5,000 characters)

Rural tourism has attracted increasing interest from academics, politicians and practioners alike. However contested its definition, the countryside’s popularity amongst urban populations, and the socio-economic and environmental challenges faced by both rural areas and by rural tourism, are strong themes worldwide. Those challenges include the decline and change of traditionally dominant agricultural and productive functions, the potential development of the countryside as a place of hedonic consumption, all coupled with numerous management issues. The list of issues is enormous: tensions and interactions between global and local, rural and urban; man versus nature; anthropocentric versus eco-centric; production and consumption; past, present and future; conservation and progress; nostalgia, imaginary and real; the desires and expectations of a growing series of diverse stakeholders with distinct interests in the “rural space”.

This conference, prepared as part of a 3-years research project on the “Overall Rural Tourism Experience” (ORTE) in three Portuguese villages, offers an in depth discussion of the “rural tourism experience”, its manifestations, meanings, impacts and evolution. It intends to significantly contribute to current reflections on the potential and limitations of rural tourism as a development tool as well as to the identification of ways to maximize this potential in certain circumstances, through a more profound understanding of the dynamics of the “overall rural tourism experience”.

Seven main themes are suggested for guiding discussions on the rural tourism experience:

1. Understanding the rural tourist: their motivations, perceptions, sensations, experiences, memories and imagination

2. Understanding rural residents’ experience with tourists

3. Experience design with endogenous resources (focusing on “countryside capital”) 

4. Entrepreneurship and innovation for quality rural tourism experiences

5. Marketing the rural tourism experience: co-creation, experience design and promotion

6. Networks and Strategic Partnership for enhancing the Overall Rural Tourism Experience

7. Enhancing sustainable development through rural tourism experiences

The Venue:
Created in 1973, the University of Aveiro (UA) has become one of the most dynamic and innovative universities in Portugal in terms of its infrastructure, research and staff (see http://www.ua.pt/default.aspx?lg=en). The prize winning Campus de Santiago, overlooking the Aveiro lagoon, is renowned for its many buildings designed by famous Portuguese architects. It is close to Aveiro’s city centre and easily accessible by road and frequent, low cost, high speed rail services from Lisbon to the south and Oporto to the north. Both Lisbon and Oporto have good international air services.

Aveiro, the “Venice of Portugal”, is surrounded by beaches and lagoons and crossed by canals lined by Moliceiro, traditional boats painted with bright colours and often ingenious decorations. The city has a rich mix of heritage and modern buildings, and numerous cafes and restaurants with national and local specialities including salt cod, eel stew, a variety of sea and lagoon fish soups and Aveiro’s speciality, its sweets – including the famous ovos moles (sweetened egg yolk in candied casings shaped like fish or barrels) (http://www.visitcentro.com/en/destinations/aveiro/). Inland, the Central Region of Portugal, has a huge variety of natural, historical and cultural rural resources. Ten of the Portugal’s 25 Natural Protected Areas are located here, with numerous traditional villages, including The Schist Villages, The Historical
Villages of Portugal, together with the Luso and Curia thermal baths, the Bairrada and Dão Wine Region, the Serra do Caramulo and Serra da Estrela (http://www.visitcentro.com/en/).
