2015 ESA Annual Meeting: Propose a Session for ESA's Centennial!

Recommended Posts

Call for Proposals: Symposia, Organized Oral Sessions, and Organized Poster Sessions "Ecological Science at the Frontier: Celebrating ESA's Centennial" 100th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America Baltimore, Maryland August 9-14, 2015 http://esa.org/baltimore/ Deadline for Submission: September 25, 2014 Only complete proposals submitted by 5:00 PM Eastern Time (2:00 PM Pacific) will be considered. We invite proposals for Symposia, Organized Oral Sessions, and Organized Poster Sessions for ESA's 100th Annual Meeting. Join us in beautiful historic Baltimore next summer to celebrate ESA's first century and usher in the next. ESA currently stands at a boundary between 100 successful years for the Society and an uncharted future for the planet. Appropriately, the Centennial meeting will support both retrospective and prospective sessions. Proposals examining historical topics and the history of ecology are encouraged, as well as proposals from early career ecologists and students that shine a light on the future of ecological science. Although session proposals related to the meeting's theme are encouraged, any timely and coherent subject of broad interest to ecologists will be considered. We also welcome proposals that explore interdisciplinary connections with areas of social and natural science outside of ecology or that relate to ecological education at any level. All proposals will be peer reviewed using criteria described in the proposal calls. Baltimore is a unique and vibrant city with a rich history. A variety of local attractions offer a range of experiences in science, history, culture, and art. Local sites to visit include the Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, Oriole Park, Fort McHenry, Edgar Allan Poe's gravesite, Babe Ruth's Birthplace and more. If you have any questions, please contact the Program Chair, Carol Brewer (Brewer.Carol@gmail.com) or the Science Programs Coordinator, Jennifer Riem (jennifer@esa.org).

Dear Colleagues- We are excited to announce a special Organized Oral Session, "Ecological Acoustics: Conceptual and Technological Advances in Ecology Through Sound," at this year's Annual Ecological Society of America meeting in Baltimore. There are still two open slots for oral presentations in this session, which will be selected from submitted abstracts. In addition, we encourage individuals working in bioacoustics to submit ecologically oriented studies that are acoustics-related as Contributed Talkshttp://esa.org/baltimore/abstracts/contributed-talks/>, Postershttp://esa.org/baltimore/abstracts/contributed-posters/>, or Lightning Talkshttp://esa.org/baltimore/abstracts/contributed-lightning-talks/> that would complement this session. It would be great to have good representation from researchers focused on bioacoustics at this exciting meeting. Please note that abstracts are due by 5 pm EST on February 26, 2015. We hope to see you there! - Aaron Rice, Susan Parks, & David Luther -- Aaron N. Rice, Ph.D. Bioacoustics Research Program Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology Cornell University 159 Sapsucker Woods Rd.
