Call for Organized Session Proposals: Proposals for Organized Panels, Paper Sessions, Book Review Sessions, and Workshops for ISSRM 2019 are now being considered! This year’s symposium will be held on the campus of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, a sustainability-oriented institution in the mid-sized Midwestern city of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Located just 25 minutes from the Appleton International Airport and within an easy drive of not only of many Midwestern universities but also the Aldo Leopold Foundation and a number of other ecological and recreational attractions, UW Oshkosh is an accessible, affordable, family-friendly, and beautiful conference venue!

Proposals pertaining to the interactions between social and ecological systems are welcome. The deadline for submission of proposals is November 15, 2018 at midnight (CST). We do not anticipate an extension beyond that date, and strongly encourage you to submit your proposal well before the deadline! Session proposals will be reviewed in the order they are received. To facilitate early registration and travel planning, we will make every effort to send out decision notifications regarding acceptance of organized session proposals by no later than December 7, 2018.

Organized Sessions represent an opportunity to bring together a group of scholars to present and discuss work focusing on a particular integrative theme or topic. These sessions can be structured in multiple ways:

  • A collection of 3-5 thematically-linked oral presentations (with or without a discussant)
  • A panel of experts on a given topic
  • A roundtable discussion
  • An author-meets-critics session
  • A workshop/training activity.
  • Or, you can propose your own idea!

Panels and paper sessions will last 90 minutes. Organizer(s) should recruit and receive commitments from participants in advance of proposal submission, and include details regarding who will participate and what they will be doing as part of the session proposal. Organized sessions will be highlighted and given priority in the program.

Please submit your organized session proposal electronically by going to the 2019 ISSRM webpage and click on “Add” next to “Session Proposals” on the right side of the page. Please note: a login account is required before a session proposal can be submitted; you must also be logged into your account to submit a session proposal.

Please email Jessica Hill ([email protected]) if you have any questions.

We look forward to hosting you at the 2019 ISSRM!
