Estuarine and marine systems worldwide are shifting in their structure and function due to diverse drivers from local to global scales. The resulting threats to these systems are often all too apparent, yet such changes can also present new opportunities. The challenge is to harness these opportunities through new ways of thinking, scientific developments, innovative technology and more effective integration of science and management.
The abstract submission system will open on the 30th of October 2017.
Delegates are invited to propose and convene special organised sessions for ECSA 57. Selection of session proposals will be highly competitive and priority will be given to sessions that address the overall ECSA 57 theme and are at the cutting-edge of current estuarine and coastal science.
ECSA encourage innovative sessions and formats including, but not restricted, to oral presentations, posters, workshops, practitioner forums, panels and discussions. Session timeslots can be flexible to accommodate alternative formats.
Sessions may be sponsored by relevant institutes, organisations and research groups, however sessions do not need to be sponsored in order to appear in the programme. Special session organisers will participate (along with the ECSA 57 Scientific Committee) in soliciting and selecting session contributions.
The deadline for proposing a session for ECSA 57 is 6th October 2017.
