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.
