We are inviting abstracts for oral presentations that are organized around the conference theme or session topics. More information regarding the sessions can be found here.
1. Abstracts should not be more than one A4 size page (max. 400 Words) and should include the following:
a. Title of the abstract/talk
b. Name of the authors
c. e-mail-address (please mark corresponding author)
e. Keywords (max. 5)
2. The conference audience will be international and highly interdisciplinary who might not be familiar with practices, terms, jargons and acronyms from your discipline/domain. Please consider submitting the abstract meant for the general audience by avoiding the use of jargon and elaborating potential unfamiliar abbreviations.
3. Please select the session to which you would like to submit your abstract. Do not submit the same abstract to multiple sessions.
The organizers of the session will review the abstract and may accept or reject your submission or may send it back requesting changes. The session chair may also recommend you to consider re-submitting it to another session.
Check abstract that you may want to submit or is accepted for typos, grammar etc. Abstracts will be published in the online proceedings of the ICEI2018 conference. The organizers will NOT do proof-reading.
Mostly all oral presentations will be of 15 minutes duration (talk + questions), to make it easier for participants to move between session if they wish.
Based on the novelty of topic, abstract and oral presentation, selected authors will be invited to consider manuscript submission to the special issue of Ecological Informatics.
The call for oral presentations is closed.
Call for Special Sessions and Tutorials
We cordially invite special sessions on all aspects of ecoinformatics and computational ecology including but not limited to:
• Novel concepts and tools for the acquisition, management, analysis and synthesis of ecological data, including genomic and paleo-ecological data
• Understanding and modeling ecosystem functioning, phenology and evolution
• Informing decisions on environmental issues like sustainability, ecosystem services, climate change and biodiversity.
Special session proposals should provide a title and details of the session’s organizer(s) as well as a brief scope of the session including information on (1) the objective and intended achievements of the session (2), whether the session will be conducted as a workshop, a series of talks or a discussion, and (3) how much time will be needed for the session.
The sessions are for the general audience. Therefore, jargon should be avoided, acronyms and abbreviations should be spelled out.
As organizer of an accepted special session you should
• Contact potential authors and in general help in advertising the session
• Recommend which of the submitted papers to accept based on the reviews obtained
• Attend the conference and chair the session or nominate a session chair.
