Eco-DAS 2021

Eco-DAS XIV will be held in October 2021 as a virtual symposium!

COVID-19 travel and conference restrictions prevented holding Eco-DAS XIV as originally scheduled in October 2020. Conference venues remain closed, so Eco-DAS XIV will be held as a virtual symposium that will not require travel.

We encourage applications from all recent PhD recipients working in the aquatic sciences, as well as individuals working in  other disciplines who are collaborating with aquatic scientists.

The 2021 symposium will be held between 25-29 October. Applicants should have received their PhD between 1 June 2019, and 1 June 2021.

The dissertation work of the applicant must deal with an ecological problem in oceanography or limnology. Applications will include: a current resume, a letter of support from the applicant's current (graduate or postdoctoral) advisor, an additional letter of support from another individual familiar with the applicant's background (optional), a personal statement regarding the applicants goals and reasons for applying (2 pages maximum), and a substantive outline of a proposed collaborative manuscript or other project (3 pages maximum).

We have extended the application deadline to 15 September 2021.  Letters of support may be provided with the application , or emailed separately to

Past symposia have resulted in formal proceedings published as Limnology and Oceanography e-Books; articles appearing in Limnology and Oceanography: Letters, Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments, Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin, F1000 Research, Oecologia, Environmental Evidence, and other journals; and the Wikiproject Limnology and Oceanography.

Eco-DAS funding is provided by NSF (Award OCE-1925796) and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography.
