ESA Annual Meeting in Savannah, Georgia, 3-8 August Deadlines: Abstracts for Symposia Talk presenters, Contributed Papers, Papers
in Organized Paper Sessions and Posters: 1 March 2003
The Ecological Society of America (ESA) and the International Society for Ecological
Modeling (ISEM) will be meeting jointly from Sunday, 3 August through noon
Friday, 8 August 2003 in Savannah, Georgia, at the Savannah Convention Center.
This will be the 88th annual meeting for ESA. The meeting will include symposia,
contributed papers, organized contributed paper sessions, poster sessions, workshops,
discussions, special evening events, field trips, social gatherings, and business
meetings. Some of these will be joint, and others specific to each society.
The theme of the meeting is "Uplands to Lowlands: Coastal Processes in
a Time of Global Change." The meeting location and theme provide an excellent
opportunity to increase understanding of coastal ecosystems and explore their
vulnerability to climate variability and human land uses in the uplands. The
meeting will include practitioners, managers, regulators, academic scientists,
agency researchers, and educators; and, we hope, some interested members of
the public. As always, we welcome participants from anywhere in the world.
Call for Contributed Posters and Papers
Abstracts that address the theme are especially encouraged, but submissions
may be from any area of ecology. We also welcome the report of projects that
are interdisciplinary, that consider the need to communicate with broad audiences,
or that explore ways of teaching ecology at any level. To insure maximum participation,
each person is allowed to be first author or presenter on only one research
poster, paper, or symposium presentation. There is no limit on the number of
presentations on which a person may be a co-author. Another exception allows
a person to be a presenter or first author of a second presentation that has
an educational or scientific outreach theme. Papers submitted in this category
will be given stringent scrutiny to insure that the content is directly relevant
to the teaching of ecology. Senior authors or presenters may also serve as session presiders or organizers or facilitators of Workshops, Evening Sessions or Discussions.
