CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
(Deadline for Early Registration: July 2, 2010)

General Information

The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association (IEA) invites you to participate in the 16th International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment! The conference is motivated by the increasing need to combine ideas and research findings from different disciplines to enhance our understanding of the interactions between the natural environment and human institutions. Conference presentations focus on:

•    What all disciplines have to offer with respect to understanding environmental and resource problems
•    Possible solutions that are available
•    The implications of the globalization of environmental concerns

The conference welcomes environmental practitioners, academics, and interested colleagues regardless of discipline or country. Participants may organize sessions (please ask for "Panel Organizer Guidelines"), present papers, participate in poster sessions, chair sessions, discuss papers, participate in round-table discussions, or simply observe. The conference also welcomes papers and posters submitted by students, both graduate and undergraduate. Advisors, please contact kreiter@stetson.edu for details.

To facilitate communication, authors should make an effort to write papers and design posters that can be understood by an audience outside their disciplines. All papers submitted for publication consideration in Interdisciplinary Environmental Review must pass peer review from both within and outside the primary discipline of the author(s). The program consists of:

  • Small concurrent seminar-type sessions with chairperson, presenters, and a discussant assigned to comment on and integrate the ideas of the presentations
  • A poster session with time for discussion with the authors
  • Round-table thematic discussions with moderator
  • Workshops and panels
  • Invited keynote speakers
  • Welcome reception the evening of Sept. 22; conference banquet luncheon Sept. 24

We welcome research that spans the boundaries of traditional disciplines to frame environmental problems, propose working models, or address field, community, or academic issues. While any interdisciplinary environmental topic is welcome, areas of special interest in 2010 include:

  • Impacts of Development on Scarce Resources
  • Being "Green" in a Recession
  • Water in a Thirsty World
  • Environmental Impacts of Tourism
  • Latin American Environmental Issues
  • Policy, Economics, and Climate Change
  • Campus Environmental Initiatives
  • The Economics of Sustainability
  • CONTINUING SPECIAL TOPIC: Accreditation of Environmental Programs
