Don't forget to submit a Scientific Session for the 2017 Gulf of Mexico
Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference.
The 2017 conference theme, “Ecosystem Approaches to Gulf Response and
Restoration,” encourages researchers to consider the application of their
results to practical use. 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? Using
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. We are
especially interested in sessions focused on impacts to and/or recovery of
The deadline to submit a session proposal is June 24th, 2016.
