The conference will take place from June 17-21, 2007 in Park City, Utah. ISSRM is the premier scientific meeting for academic and government researchers, students, land managers and NGO representatives who are broadly interested in the human dimensions of natural resources and the environment. Meetings typically attract 800 or more scientists, managers, students, and conservation professionals from more than 25 nations. Participating disciplines include sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science, economics, landscape architecture, environmental planning, outdoor recreation management, history, and the natural sciences. Most attendees are committed to interdisciplinary scientific collaboration.
The theme for the 2007 symposium is Landscape Continuity and Change - Social Science Perspectives and Interdisciplinary Conversations. Abstracts are due January 31, 2007. For more information, visit http://www.issrm2007.org.
There will also be a special pre-symposium Graduate Student Forum held on the Utah State University campus in Logan, Utah, the weekend before the main conference. This event will provide graduate students with a chance to network with peers, discuss strategies for successful graduate research and training, and get advice on professional and career opportunities.
