Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology
Published On: 2/5/2014
3rd Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology (SUSE) meeting in Portland, OR, May 15-17, 2014
Members of the scientific community are invited to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations. Talks should have some connection to the meeting theme, mechanisms of urban impacts on stream ecosystems, and will be 12 minutes with 3 minutes for question and answer. Posters should bear similar content and be no more than 45 inches high x 45.5 inches high. Abstracts are limited to 180 words, and should be submitted online by Sunday, March 2nd.
Researchers from various regions of the globe are sought to contribute 5-8 minute “mini talks” describing the urban stream syndrome in their respective regions of study. These talks will follow a prescribed format, and will conclude with a panel discussion on global diversity of mechanisms and responses. If you have not already expressed your interest via the website, please contact Allison Roy with your proposed region. Contributors to the global diversity mini-talks are not excluded from other oral or poster presentations.
The symposium will be held in the Crowne Plaza Hotel prior to the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting (JASM). Preregistration for SUSE 2014 is now open and will remain open until March 2nd through the same portal as abstract submission. We will contact you again in March where you can formally register and pay for the conference and events. The total cost of the conference is dependent on grant funding. Registration and event fees will be approximately $25 to $125 depending on support. Please note, the Crowne Plaza is also associated with the JASM meeting; thus discounted rooms ($152/night) can be obtained for the entire period (May 15-17; May 18-24) via the link on the “Details” page of the SUSE website or by calling the hotel (503-233-2401) and mentioning the meeting name (Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology). Additional meeting details, including a preliminary schedule, will be posted on the SUSE website.
