Opportunities
Propose a Workshop
Deadline: May 16, 2016

Workshops are single meetings of up to ~25 participants that focus on a broad topic or a set of related topics related to socio-environmental science and/or socio-environmental problems. Workshops may summarize and/or synthesize the state of the topic and/or identify future directions that have the potential to lead to a larger synthesis effort. We are particularly interested in workshops that bring together new combinations of individuals and disciplines.
