Call for proposals

Call for proposals for special sessions has ended. Abstract submission for the special sessions and open sessions will begin in January 2014.
 
______________________
We welcome proposals for special sessions, which can be related to the main theme of the Conference, or any other relevant issues related to restoration.

 

Instructions:

Write a short abstract (max 250 words) of your idea for the special session. Send your abstract to people you would like to invite to give an oral presentation in the session. A thumb of rule is that one session has five to six presentations. If your idea attracs more speakers you can also organize a longer special session with 10-12 presentations. We encourage creativity in the ways to organise the special sessions so that also discussion panels are welcome, or combinations of oral and poster presentations etc. After you have a list of speakers and topics of their presentations, please send the abstract and the speaker list and their topics to us at ser2014@metla.fi, by 20th December 2013. 

 

Topics to discuss in the Conference and/or in the special sessions, for example:

  • Restoration of ecosystem services
  • Ecological, economic and socio-cultural values of restoration
  • Approaches, methods and tools to increase the link between science and decision making
  • EU 2020 biodiversity strategy and 15% restoration target
