About The Meeting
ASLO is returning to Santa Fe! The 2016 Summer Meeting will be held 5-10 June at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Designated a UNESCO Creative City in 2005, the city continues to be a top-ten city in many categories. A rich history has left its unique mark on Santa Fe’s day-to-day lifestyle. From the arts, to cuisine, to architecture, Santa Fe is a wonderful location. The ASLO 2016 Summer Meeting will bring together both freshwater and salt water scientists, educators, policy makers and students to meet and learn from each other about the many issues that face aquatic scientists today.
The committee has partnered with the city of Santa Fe on organizing workshops, field trips, cultural experiences, and local art exhibitions which will be characteristic to the city and unique to the region. The meeting will feature two sessions that will be open to the public. Both of these sessions will highlight present day freshwater challenges around the world and will raise awareness about these issues.
Major thematic topics in limnology and oceanography will be covered by the regular sessions. Themes will include topics such as biogeochemistry, biodiversity, invasive species, multiple stressors, etc. Special sessions will include topics that are conceptually focused and will include contributions from different aquatic habitat types as well as varied interdisciplinary perspectives.
