21st International Symposium on Society and Resource Managment


June 13, 2015


Charleston, SC


The 2015 ISSRM will foster creativity and disciplinary integration through a number of stimulating plenaries, media presentations, social events, field excursions, and innovative information exchange formats. The theme for the 2015 ISSRM centers on understanding and adapting to change. Drivers of and responses to change can take many forms and be observed and measured in many contexts – whether social, behavioral, economic, political, or technological; changes to natural or built environments; or changes to culture or tradition. Change can also be gauged in various ways in terms of scale – from local to regional to national – and rate of change – from episodic to gradual to rapid to continuous. The four focus areas for the conference are:

  • Tradition at the Edge: Changing Cultural and Historic Conditions
  • Society at the Edge: Changing Ecological Conditions
  • Cities at the Edge: Changing Urban Conditions
  • Governance at the Edge: Changing Managerial Conditions

Registration ranges from $375 for IASNR members to $425 for non-IASNR members. Additionally, there pre-conference trainings, workshops, and field-trips listed separately with associated participant fees which are not included in the conference registration fees.
