ISEE 2014: Wellbeing and Equity within Planetary Boundaries

Call for session proposals, paper and poster abstracts

The biannual conference of the ISEE will be hosted by the University of Iceland August 13 – 15 2014.

As economic, social and environmental systems worldwide face increasing pressures and the call for an alternative economic approach becomes louder, we aim to provide a welcoming environment for critical conversations on the role and ability of Ecological Economics to provide paths and tools towards effective alternative solutions for the future – Towards Wellbeing and Equity within Planetary Boundaries.

To achieve this aim the conference will concentrate on three overarching themes that all relate closely to the focal idea of the conference.

The themes are:

  1. Planetary boundaries and resource constraints
  2. Equity and economic development dynamics
  3. A great transition ahead?

For each theme a number of sub-themes have been identified in addition to an open category. We invite abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations linked to the identified sub-themes. In addition we invite session proposal submissions that relate to the conference overall theme.

Paper and poster abstract submissions as well as proposals for sessions open on September 20th. Please note that deadline for session proposals is October 20th, and deadline for paper and poster abstracts is November 15th.  The deadline for Session Proposals has been extended to November, 1, 2013.

UPDATE on 15 November: The deadline for abstract submission for oral and poster presentations for ISEE 2014, Reykjavik, Iceland, has been extended to December 1.
