Call for symposia 

To promote collaboration and interdisciplinary dialogue, we invite you to 
propose symposia with specific topics. Proposals are encouraged to 
address the congress theme, if appropriate, but doing so is not 
necessary. Any timely and coherent subject of broad ecological interests 
will be considered. We also welcome proposals that explore 
interdisciplinary connections with areas of social and natural science 
outside of ecology.

 Each symposium should have 8 to 10 speakers (15 min. presentations 
plus 5 min. discussions). The content of symposium should follow the 
form given in the attachment.
