CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: 14th International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM)
ISSRM will be held on June 10-14, 2008 at the University of Vermont in Burlington. ISSRM is the official annual meeting of the International Association for Society and Natural Resources, and is the largest international gathering of academics, researchers, graduate students, and practitioners interested in the application of social science to natural resources and environmental issues. The theme of the 2008 Symposium is “People and Place: Linking Culture and Nature”, and will 1) emphasize the human dimensions of environmental and natural resources issues, 2) include the broad array of social science disciplines and related fields of study, and 3) illustrate the interdisciplinary, cooperative, and collaborative character of research and management.
ISSRM offers many types of opportunities to participate, including traditional paper (oral) presentations, poster presentations, and a variety of sessions that can be organized by participants. Abstracts for all of these forms of participation are due by February 8, 2008. Details on abstract submission, as well as the Symposium program, registration, housing, travel, and other matters are included in the web site noted above. Please note that opportunities to help sponsor selected components of the Symposium, including the Student Forum, are available for those in a position to help.
