CALL FOR PAPERS: European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE) 2007: Integrating Natural and Social Sciences for Sustainability

The European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE), in co-operation with the German associations for ecological economics VÖÖ and VÖW, are pleased to invite you to join us in Leipzig, Germany for the 7th biennial international conference of the European Society for Ecological Economics: 5-8 June 2007.

The conference will explore contemporary scientific approaches for incorporating the concept of Sustainable Development in research and practice, with a particular focus on the bridging of contributions from the natural and social sciences. It will address a broad range of sustainability topics including loss of biodiversity, human vulnerability to global change and water problems on all geographical and institutional levels. The aim of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of societal and natural processes and their interaction through the integration of different scientific methodologies, in order to overcome shortcomings associated with single- and multi-discipline approaches. Impediments to inter- and trans-disciplinary research will be examined and new research approaches for addressing sustainability questions will be identified.

Deadline for submitting abstract and full paper proposals is 20 November 2006. To submit your abstract or full paper proposal go to http://www.conftool.com/esee2007/. To register go to http://www.esee2007.ufz.de/participation/registration.html.
