The 2017 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference is pleased to announce that the Call for Abstracts is now open!

This year's theme, "Ecosystem Approaches to Gulf Response and Restoration," encourages researchers to consider the application of their results to practical use.  Scientific research will be critical to informing planning, preparedness, response and recovery for future events, and connecting this to decision makers in the response and restoration communities will be key. Looking across a broad range of disciplines, what have we learned about oil spills and their impacts that can reduce uncertainty, mitigate ecological, social and health impacts of a future spill, advance response strategies, and improve how we approach restoration?

The selected conference sessions (http://www.cvent.com/events/2017-oil-spill-and-ecosystem-science-conference/custom-120-b167156e2ddd40e5a4d371b459058545.aspx?tw=25-5A-7D-C2-10-F6-D1-0B-ED-4B-B5-45-F9-67-C1-2A) emphasize applications of recent oil spill science to restoration, resource management and oil spill response. Each session will include invited speakers and oral presentations; papers not selected for oral presentations will be afforded an opportunity to participate in the poster session.

The deadline to submit an abstract is September 26, 2016. You do not need to be registered to submit an abstract.
