Call for Proposals
Submission Deadline: February 26, 2020
The ACES 2020 conference central theme is "Focusing on the Future of Ecosystem Services" with an emphasis placed on accelerating the use of ecosystem services for land and resource management and fostering the next generation of ecosystem service researchers and practitioners.
The Program Committee is seeking input from the community and invites you to assist with program development via the session and workshop proposal process. Special session topics and formats will be considered; we encourage organizers to consider the frontiers of ecosystem service research. Workshops should be interactive and hands on by design and provide an informal setting where participants can discuss technical topics and engage in an active exchange of ideas.
All ecosystem services related research and applications proposals are welcome; we especially encourage ideas on these topics:
- Ecosystem Services* in Action – land and resource management using ecosystem services, case studies encouraged
- Human Physical and Mental Health Benefits of Ecosystem Services – translation of ecosystem function to human health outcomes and valuation; mental health studies of ecosystem services
- Cultural Ecosystem Services – non-use ecosystem services methods and valuation
*Ecosystem services may be known as an alternative name (natural capital, ecological benefits, etc.) – terminology should not limit submission of ideas.
