General Call for Abstracts: Abstract submissions for individual papers and posters for presentation at the 2020 ISSRM are now being considered! This year’s symposium will be held in Cairns, Australia, at the Shangri-La Hotel. Information on the hotel and conference can be found by clicking here.

We encourage submissions that are relevant to the symposium theme and those that focus on the interactions between social and ecological systems. All abstracts must be submitted by no later than February 5, 2020, at midnight (Central Standard Time). We do not anticipate an extension beyond that date and strongly encourage you to submit your abstracts well before the deadline! If you have extenuating circumstances that prohibit you from submitting by the deadline, please email [email protected]. Abstracts will be reviewed in the order they are received. To facilitate early registration and travel planning, we will make every effort to send decision notifications regarding acceptance of abstracts to authors by March 15.

Individual paper and poster abstracts can be submitted electronically by clicking here and selecting “Add” next to “Submit Abstracts (Oral Presentations and Posters).” Please note: a login account is required before an abstract can be submitted; you must also be logged into your account to submit an abstract.

Guidelines for Abstracts:

Abstracts should be in paragraph form, without bullet points. Additionally, the abstract body should include details regarding the background, purpose, methods, results, and conclusions. Please also indicate the theory/analytical framework for the work and provide a description of the research methods used.

**PLEASE NOTE** Individuals are limited to serving as lead author on only one oral paper presentation; this does not include co-authorship. Individuals may serve as lead author on an oral paper presentation while also organizing a session, presenting a poster, or serving on a panel. Please email Jessica Hill ([email protected]) if you have any questions.

(This general call for abstracts is separate from the call for special sessions with a closing date of November 1st, 2019).

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

We look forward to hosting you at the 2020 ISSRM!
