29 August 2016 - 01 September 2016
The conference series was founded in 1996 in Copenhagen, as a forum to meet the demands of scientists working in several new ecological disciplines, and who required a better understanding of the concepts and methods for a holistic use of ecology in environmental management.
EcoSummit 2016 will center on the ecology of terrestrial ecosystems and all habitats that are integrated within those ecosystems, including river networks, wetlands and coastlines. Around 1500 delegates from 75 countries will meet in 93 sessions and 15 side events to focus on finding solutions for today’s massive environmental problems. IIASA researchers from the Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gases, Advanced Systems Analysis, and Ecosystems Services and Management programs will participate. IIASA researcher Brian Fath is on the advisory committee for the conference.
