2017 Aquatic Sciences Meeting Session Proposals

ASLO > Session Start Page

Session Submission Form

In 2017, ASLO will be returning to Honolulu to convene its biennial Aquatic Sciences Meeting. We welcome proposals for special sessions on topics relevant to freshwater and marine systems and encourage submissions that examine connectivity across aquatic habitats at global, local, and microbial scales. We hope that you will consider developing an idea for a special session that will contribute to a lively conference.

Proposals should identify at least two, but no more than six, co-organizers and should include an informative session title and a short description of the session. (See additional details below). One of the session co-chairs must be identified as the session’s lead contact for the meeting committee.

Session proposals are due 17 June 2016. Proposals will be reviewed and proposers will be notified of the decision in July 2016.

Guidelines for Session Nominations

Session nominations must be submitted using the form that follows. At least two co-chairs who plan to attend are required. Session chairs who attend must register for the meeting. Session titles should be 255 characters or less. Session descriptions should be limited to 200 words and should be broad enough to include all interested researchers, regardless of affiliation or funding sources.

Session nominations must be submitted online by 23:59 U.S. Central Time on 17 June 2016. The Call for Abstracts will be issued in August 2016, and abstract submissions will be due online in October 2016.

Session Organization

Once a session is accepted, session organizers should solicit abstract submissions to their session. Sessions will be scheduled by the planning committee. Once a session is set with a specific list of presentations, those designated for poster and oral presentation will be determined by the organizers.

Town Hall and Other Meetings

We also encourage town hall and other group meetings in available rooms at the Hawaii Convention Center, primarily during the lunch break each day. Supplemental meeting request forms will be available online with the Call for Abstracts.

Thank You!

Thank you very much for your interest in participating in the 2017 Aquatic Sciences Meeting by suggesting a session. As you probably know, sessions form a large part of the structure of our meetings, and the Organizing Committee relies upon individuals to come forward with ideas for the best and most exciting topics. The Committee will review the submitted suggestions and develop a meeting plan that incorporates these ideas. Your contribution is greatly appreciated!
