NCER 2011 - The National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration - Call for Abstracts

Individuals working in ecosystem restoration are invited to submit abstracts for NCER 2011 - The National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration.  NCER is an interdisciplinary conference on large scale ecosystem restoration presenting state-of-the art science and engineering, planning and policy in a partnership environment.  The purpose of NCER is to provide an interactive forum for physical, biological and social scientists, engineers, resource managers, planners and policy makers to share their experiences and research results concerning large-scale ecosystem restoration on both national and international levels. NCER 2011 will be held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront from August 1 - 5. 

The abstracts should describe the author's efforts, science, projects and results. Oral and poster presentations will be selected from abstract submissions, and abstracts from all presentations will be published online in the conference book of abstracts. Poster presentations will be divided into two sessions and formal poster sessions will be held for each grouping to allow maximum time for discussion with individual authors.  The abstract submission deadline has been recently extended until January 21.  Abstracts can be submitted on-line via this web site.
