Deadline for Submission: Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time (2:00 PM Pacific)

 

Please note that the submission form will close precisely at the deadline even if you have not completed your submission! Any abstracts sent by email after the deadline will NOT be considered.

 

We invite submissions of abstracts for contributed oral and poster presentations at the 99th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America. The theme for the meeting is "From Oceans to Mountains: It's All Ecology." Abstracts related to this theme are highly encouraged, but submissions may address any aspect of ecology and its applications. We also welcome submissions that report interdisciplinary work, address communication with broad audiences, or explore ways of teaching ecology at any level.

 

Each presenter will indicate at the time of abstract submission whether an abstract is intended for a talk or a poster. Abstracts will be placed in thematic sessions based on topics ranked by the submitting author at the time of abstract submission.

 

Contributed oral presentations (talks) are allotted 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions. Contributed oral sessions will be scheduled on mornings and afternoons from Monday afternoon through Friday morning. Contributed poster sessions (posters) will be scheduled in the late afternoon from Monday through Thursday. By submitting an abstract, authors are indicating they expect to be available during any of the appropriate time slots.

Call for Art (Deadline June 30th)

 

Posted to ecolog listserv...

 

We are still in need of digital pictures of art for this year’s ESA SS EcoArt

Festival! The EcoArt festival is an annual display of ecologically themed art

(or art by ecologically minded individuals) that takes place at the ESA

conference.

 

If you have artwork of any sort (such as paintings, sculptures, photographs,

videos, etc.) please send electronic photos of your work to Jessica Shade at

shade@berkeley.edu, along with your name, the name of the artwork, the media

used, and whether you will be able to attend the event (not being able to

attend does not preclude your art from being shown, but you must be present to

win prizes).

 

The pictures will be projected at an ESA Special Session and displayed before

the event on the ESA SS Facebook page.

 

Thank you!

Sign up for Science Communication Workshop at ESA Annual Meeting

 

Inspired by the rallying call at last year’s Annual Meeting

http://www.esa.org/esablog/ecology-and-society/whats-the-future-of-ecologist-communicators/>

to better connect our science to society, we’ve organized a hands-on

workshop http://eco.confex.com/eco/2014/webprogram/Session9813.html> for

attendees of this year’s Annual Meeting: Workshop 15:

http://eco.confex.com/eco/2014/webprogram/Session9813.html>*Beyond the

written word – advancing ecology communication through multimedia*

http://eco.confex.com/eco/2014/webprogram/Session9813.html>.

 

As we look towards ESA’s Centennial

https://esa.org/history/esa-2015-centennial/>, we want to move the

conversation forward from talking about *why* communicating our science is

important to improving *how* we actually do it.

 

During the five-hour workshop on Sunday, August 10

http://eco.confex.com/eco/2014/webprogram/Session9813.html>, you’ll get a

crash course in scientific storytelling using audio, video, text,

photography, and illustration from a talented team of

ecologist-communicators. We will first orient you to our favorite tools,

software and apps – most of which you already carry around in your pocket

or could download for free. Then, we’ll lead you through hands-on exercises

to gain confidence and expertise in each media.

Here’s the most exciting part of the workshop: you’ll form a small team

with workshop presenters and other participants to plan and produce a

multimedia project covering some aspect of the science at the meeting.

We’ll even provide a platform for you to share these multimedia pieces with

the world: a special series published on the *EcoTone* blog

http://www.esa.org/esablog/>.

 

Learn more about the workshop in our recent EcoTone post:

Hope to see you there!
