This year the conference is scheduled for June 9-11, 2014 and the theme is 'Designing for Resilience in a Changing World'. The program will include invited speakers, technical presentations, posters and exhibits, field trips, and networking opportunities. Student participation is critical, with emphasis on design experiences and mentoring for our future ecological engineers. We would like to encourage participants to consider how ecological design can support sustainable communities and resilient systems. Deadline for abstract submission is March 24, 2014. Discounted early bird registration ends April 15, 2014.
