Call for Abstracts


Online Abstract Registration is closed.

We will extend the Abstract deadline until 25th April due to numerous requests concerning delays in the Abstract submission. All abstracts can be evaluated before the early bird registration deadline, which is 7 May 2014.

 

Please note that in order to guarantee your Abstract printed in the Conference Abstract Book, the Presenting Author should complete his or her registration for the Conference by 7 May 2014 (see registration page for details). Requests for changing the Presenting Author can be made by writing to ser2014@metla.fi until 7 May 2014.

 
We received over 20 excellent proposals for special sessions. The session ideas cover a wide range of topics in Ecological Restoration, such as ecosystem processes, traditional knowledge in restoration, and the policy of restoration. After some reorganizing there are altogether 25 sessions, all of which are open for Abstract submission. The sessions are grouped into four themes:
  • Theme 1: Ecosystem services and application of new concepts in Ecological Restoration
  • Theme 2: Ecological Restoration and policy
  • Theme 3: Approaches and processes in Ecological Restoration
  • Theme 4: Restoration of ecosystems
The session proposers will work together with the Scientific Committee to choose the Abstracts to the proposed sessions. The Scientific Committee however reserves the right to decide on the final Abstract allocation to different sessions.

The Conference has been offered an opportunity to edit a special issue for the Environment Science and Pollution Research journal (ESPR, IF=2.651), free of charge. Please consider this as a possibility to present your related research in the special issue. We will do the finding and pre-selecting of appropriate papers, but you can also be proactive and contact us directly to: ser2014@metla.fi.
