IMG_34271Our lab just put together a handy list of upcoming ecology, conservation and modelling conferences around the world in 2014. Others might also find it useful. Some of the abstract submission deadlines have already passed, but it still might be useful to know what’s on the immediate horizon if attendance only is an option.

Fantastic list! Need to get cracking on some abstracts! I would also add that the Australasian Network for Ecology and Transportation (ANET) are having their inaugural conference in Coffs Harbour, July 20-23. ANET are a newly formed network dedicated road ecology – the research, design and implementation of environmentally-sensitive linear infrastructure (rail, roads and utility easements) – across Australasia. You can read more about ANET and road ecology here http://ksoanesresearch.wordpress.com/2013/11/21/introducing-the-australasian-network-for-ecology-and-transportation/

Abstract submissions open until April 15th http://ecoltrans.net/anet-conference-2014/.

Thank you, Kylie.

Just a little reminder that gallivanting all over the world via big ol’ jet planes, even in the name of conservation ecology conferences, is exactly the sort of behaviour that we want to avoid if we want to actually do something meaningful about climate change. If ecologists cannot set a behavioural example by avoiding the “most emissions profligate activity per hour” (as climatologist Kevin Anderson refers to jet flying), then who will? And if we don’t, does our discipline really have the integrity that we ascribe to it?

With modern teleconferencing technologies, lot’s can be done remotely and in real time without burning massive amounts of jet fuel. For more on this, sea my earlier post https://conservationbytes.com/2012/06/19/whos-responsible-for-climate-change/ and Kevin Anderson’s blog http://www.tyndall.ac.uk/online-tools/personal-blog/kevin-anderson-2.

Great, thanks! There should be a central website somewhere which indexes conference submission deadlines for scientific disciplines!
