Call for Latebreaking Poster Abstracts for the
2007 ESA /SER Joint Meeting in San Jose, California
August 5-10, 2007

Deadline for Abstract Submission: June 1, 2007
Under no circumstances will abstracts be accepted after the deadline!

Authors have one final chance to submit an abstract for the ESA /SER Joint Meeting! All abstracts accepted under this invitation will be presented during a “Latebreaking” poster session on Friday, August 10 from 8:30-10:30 am. Abstract titles for posters in this session will be printed in the official conference program and the abstracts will appear on the abstract CD.

Abstracts that address the meeting theme, “Ecology-based restoration in a changing world,” are especially encouraged, but submissions may be from any area of ecology. We also welcome reports of projects that are interdisciplinary, that address the need to communicate with broad audiences, or that explore ways of teaching ecology at any level. Please adhere to the following guidelines in preparing and submitting your abstract.

A. One Presentation Rule

B. Poster Presentations

C. Evaluation and Acceptance of Abstracts

D. Abstract Submission

E. Cancellations

  • Before submitting an abstract, authors should be confident that they will attend the meeting and make the presentation.
  • If circumstances prevent attendance, the author should attempt to find another person to make the presentation.
  • Late cancellations and failures to give a scheduled presentation are disruptive and leave costly gaps in the program that are distracting to all attendees. Therefore, ESA /SER has adopted the following cancellation policy and fee schedule (all values are in US dollars):
  • Each person who submits an abstract MUST also provide payment information (credit card or check) to ESA. No abstract submission will be accepted for presentation unless this payment information is received by ESA.
  • Payment information will be used to process late cancellation/no show fees ONLY if the presenter fails to show up to present his/her poster and does not arrange for a co-author or other alternate person to present the abstract.
  • $40.00 US Dollars will be charged for late cancellation/no show poster presentations.
