The Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation
22nd Biennial Conference
Toward Resilient Coasts and Estuaries,
Science for Sustainable Solutions
November 3-7, 2013
San Diego, CA USA
Session and workshop proposal deadline is 1 October 2012
The Program Committee for the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation’s 2013 Conference (CERF 2013) invites proposals for special sessions and workshops. In addition to convening sessions that consider new findings within CERF’s traditional scientific disciplines, we plan to convene CERF 2013 sessions that promote a connection between science and management.
Please feel free to contact one of the Scientific Program Committee Co-Chairs, John Largier (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Skyli McAfee (email@example.com), if you would like to discuss your ideas for sessions or workshops.
Proposed special sessions may have an oral, poster, or combined oral/poster format. Poster sessions will be highlighted during coffee breaks, happy hour and during the evening in the poster hall. We encourage proposals for innovative presentations, e.g. using video or other interactive methods.
For a proposed session, please be prepared to act as the convener and/or identify others who will help develop and chair this session. The Scientific Program Committee will work with you to develop diverse participation and options for an integrated synthesis component for each scientific session.
To submit a proposal, please use the new on-line submission process. Go to the submission Website here.
There you will find further instructions for submitting a session or workshop proposal.
