The conference will be organised around 3 main sessions:

  • Understanding the challenges
  • Changing our thinking
  • Providing solutions to the challenges

A more detailed conference programme will be provided in due course.

Call for papers and posters

Conference Sessions 1 and 3 will consist of invited speakers. For Session 2 - Changing our thinking - there is a call for papers. The session will provide a forum for ideas that have emerged over recent years and have the potential to change the way we think about biodiversity and ecosystems research, policy, management or communication. We are interested in offers of oral papers and suggestions for alternative formats such as panel discussions. The deadline for paper abstracts (up to 300 words) is 10th January 2009. Abstracts should be submitted only through the ALTER-Net website.

Poster contributions are welcome for any of the sessions. Titles and abstracts (up to 150 words) should be submitted by 10th January 2009 via the ALTER-Net website
