The ACES 2020 conference central theme is “Focusing on the Future of Ecosystem Services” with emphasis placed on accelerating the use of ecosystem services for land and resource management and fostering the next generation of ecosystem service researchers and practitioners.
Submission Deadline: June 22, 2020
The Program Committee is seeking input from the community and invites you to assist with program development via the abstract submission process.
All individuals interested in ecologic, economic, market, geographic, institutional, educational, outreach, and management aspects of ecosystem services are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation. All abstracts will go through a review and selection process, and all selected abstracts will be published in the conference Book of Abstracts.
All ecosystem services related research and applications abstracts are welcome; we especially encourage ideas on these topics:
- Ecosystem Services* in Action – land and resource management using ecosystem services, case studies encouraged.
- Human Physical and Mental Health Benefits of Ecosystem Services – translation of ecosystem function to human health outcomes and valuation; mental health studies of ecosystem services.
- Cultural Ecosystem Services – non-use ecosystem services methods and valuation.
- Tools Demo – consider submitting an abstract for a special organized tools session, which will feature five tools at individual tables where participants will be able to see live demonstrations of the tool (laptop required) and will switch to the next table after 15 minutes.
