Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference 2017

  • Monday, 06 February 2017 12:00

 

The 2017 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference is now accepting submissions for scientific sessions.

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.

The 2017 conference invites sessions focused on the following objectives:

  • Restoration and recovery
  • Oil spill response and management strategies
  • Human dimensions
  • Ecological impacts
  • Long-term fate and impacts
  • Breakdown and transport
  • Data management
  • Outreach and science communications

The Deadline to submit a session proposal is June 24th, 2016. Please don't hesitate to forward this email to any colleagues who may be interested.

Sincerely,
Gulf Conference
