Propose a Scientific Session for the 2016 Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference

2016 Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference: Invitation to Propose a Scientific Session
As a co-sponsor of next year’s Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference in Tampa, the Gulf Research Program is pleased to share the following call for scientific sessions:
You are invited to submit a scientific session for the 2016 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference.
The 2016 conference theme, “One Gulf: healthy ecosystems, healthy communities,” will focus on opportunities to promote and sustain a healthy Gulf environment, communities, and economy, including new discoveries, innovations, technologies, and policies. A strong emphasis this year will be placed on the human dimensions of oil spill in addition to the ecosystem science research that has led past conferences. Conveners encourage session proposers to consider linkages between physicochemical processes and the health of people, animals, and Gulf ecosystems and understanding how research findings can inform decision making that supports the health and well-being of Gulf ecosystems.

The deadline to submit a session proposal is June 14th, 2015. For more information or to submit a proposal, please visit the event website.
