The 2017 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science
Conference is now accepting submissions for scientific
sessions.  

The 2017
conference theme, “Ecosystem
Approaches to Gulf Response and Restoration,” encourages
researchers to consider the application of their results to practical
use.  Looking across a broad range of disciplines, what have we learned
about oil spills and their impacts that can reduce uncertainty, mitigate
ecological, social and health impacts of a future spill, advance response
strategies, and improve how we approach restoration? Using scientific research
will be critical to informing planning, preparedness, response and recovery for
future events, and connecting this to decision makers in the response and
restoration communities will be key. 
 


The 2017
conference invites sessions focused on the following objectives: 



 Restoration
     and recovery 
 Oil
     spill response and management strategies 
 Human
     dimensions 
 Ecological
     impacts 
 Long-term
     fate and impacts 
 Breakdown
     and transport 
 Data
     management 
 Outreach
     and science communications 



The Deadline to submit
a session proposal is June
24th, 2016.
