"Freshwater Stewardship: Challenges and Solutions"

Society for Freshwater Science (SFS), the society previously known as NABS
Annual Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky

Second Call for Special Session Proposals

The SFS Annual Meeting Committee invites proposals for special sessions at the 2012 meeting in Louisville, KY (May 20-24). Our annual meeting theme is Freshwater Stewardship: Challenges and Solutions. Our plenary sessions will include Interdisciplinary Challenges, Communicating Science, and Regional Stakeholder engagement. Special consideration will be given to proposals that support the 2012 annual meeting theme and subtheme (Aquatic scientists and a diversity of stakeholders sharing perspectives to better manage and sustain healthy freshwater ecosystems).

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 should be submitted to Daren Carlisle (dcarlisle@usgs.gov) and copied to Jan Stevenson (rjstev@msu.edu) by October 17, 2011. Proposals for special sessions will be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Committee with results sent to chairs of proposed sessions. Accepted proposals will appear on the meeting website and in the Fall SFS Bulletin.

For questions and comments, please contact Daren Carlisle or Jan Stevenson by email.
