Abstract Submission Form

Conference Themes

SESSIONS, PANELS, AND SYMPOSIA: Proposals for complete sessions, panels, and symposia are encouraged (no more than 90-minutes in length). A session proposal should include names, affiliations, and topics of presenters and the moderator (who may also be a presenter) and discussant(s). A panel session proposal should include a chairperson and 3-4 panelists who will comment and lead a discussion on an issue, without presenting a formal paper. A symposium can include several sessions on a specific theme, with varied format, including panels and presentation sessions. Workshop proposals should include the objective, a profile of intended participants, and planned activities. Session organizers are responsible for organizing the sessions and panelists, and for ensuring a session abstract is submitted along with individual abstracts for each presenter.

INDIVIDUAL PAPERS: Abstracts of individual papers will be considered for parallel sessions organized around a theme or topic, and will involve individual presentations of approximately 15-20 minutes in length (including discussion). Individual presentations of co-authored papers are welcome. Presenters are asked to submit no more than two abstracts for individual papers or presentations.

POSTERS: Poster abstracts will be considered for prominent display in an organized poster session, in which poster authors will give a brief (3-5 minute) “speed talk” describing the topic, followed by a discussion period with conference participants in a more informal discussion format.

Abstracts (200 words maximum) for sessions, individual papers, workshops, or other contributions should be submitted online. The extended deadline for submission of abstracts is February 20, 2017. Alternatively, abstracts may be prepared and submitted via e-mail to:

Dr. Whitney Lash Marshall
Executive Director, United States Society for Ecological Economics (USSEE)

Upon acceptance,  abstracts will be published to the Conference Program and available for viewing on-line only after the presenting author has duly registered for the conference. The deadline for conference registration will be April 30, 2017.
