"Responding to the Global Water Crisis"
Call for Special Session Proposals

The NABS Program Committee welcomes proposals for special sessions at the 2011 meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. Our theme is “Responding to the Global Water Crisis”. We encourage participation in 7 sessions directly tied to the theme as well as the submission of others. The special sessions to follow up on plenary sessions focus on water crises related to

• Biodiversity
• Human Health
• Urban Issues
• Ecosystem Services
• Water Scarcity
• Water Quality

Providence is located in an important coastal environment, and a special session on Estuarine Ecology will consider pertinent local and global estuarine issues.

Ideas for other sessions are welcome, and special session coordinators, Judy Li and Todd Royer would be happy to explore possibilities with members. Proposals for a special session should include a brief description of the topic and a list of potential speakers. By proposing a special session, you are expected to serve as session organizer, invite speakers for the session, and inform them of key dates for abstract submission and other program deadlines. Please help us make this an innovative and productive scientific program by submitting a proposal for a special session.

Special session proposals with abstracts, should be submitted to Judy Li (judyli@comcast.net) or Todd Royer (troyer@indiana.edu) by September 30, 2010. These abstracts will appear in the Fall NABS Bulletin.
