Call For Papers

The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association is Proud to Announce the First Call for Papers for:

The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association Presents

The 23rd International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment

July 20-22, 2017 Kona, Hawaii, USA







Due to circumstances beyond our control, the 2017 IICE has been cancelled. As a result, the Executive Committee of the IEA has begun planning for the 2018 conference. Please contact Dr. Shane Epting, Conference Chair, with questions or concerns.

Conference presentations should focus on understanding environmental problems and exploring possible solutions. Academics and practitioners may present papers or posters, organize sessions, or propose roundtable discussions. Authors should prepare papers and posters for audiences outside of their discipline. Revised and expanded conference papers can be submitted for publication in the journal, Interdisciplinary Environmental Review (IER), subject to peer review. Abstracts should be submitted by May 15, 2017:
