Our reception at ESA 2014 was a hit. Join us in 2015!
Whether you’re new to synthesis research or are already part of the U.S. synthesis center community, you’re invited to a reception during the Ecological Society of America (ESA) annual meeting in Baltimore, Maryland this August!
ESA meeting attendees at all career stages are welcome to join us for an evening of hors d'oeuvres, drinks (cash bar), and networking to learn about the diverse research and funding opportunities at our four centers.

What is synthesis?
Synthesis is “the extraction of otherwise unobtainable insight from a combination of disparate elements” that include data aggregation, reuse of results, methodological integration, and conceptual synthesis. (Sidlauskas et al. 2009)
