The 2015 ESA Annual Meeting theme is Ecological Science at the Frontier: Celebrating ESA’s Centennial. iDigBio travels to Baltimore Maryland and the Baltimore Convention Center for the 100th meeting of the ESA. From the ESA website:
The Ecological Society of America currently stands at a boundary between 100 successful years for the Society and an uncharted future for the planet. The Centennial meeting will support both retrospective and prospective sessions – looking back at the history of the field of ecology as well as forward into its future. We welcome proposals examining historical topics and the history of ecology, as well as proposals from early career scientists and students that shine a light on the future of ecological science. Proposals that explore interdisciplinary connections with areas of social and natural science outside of ecology or that relate to ecological education at any level are also encouraged.
You'll find iDigBio in Booth Spot #[stay tuned] and next to us, you'll find our booth neighbors and NSF family members: DataONE and SESYNC. Going to ESA 2015? Please plan to attend our iDigBio sponsored Ignite Session: "Enhancing Ecological Research with iDigBio Biological Specimen Data" on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM.
