First International Conference on Biodiversity

The First DIVERSITAS International Conference on Biodiversity will provide in-depth overviews of a broad range of topics in biodiversity research, with talks delivered by leading scientists from around the globe.

In keeping with DIVERSITASí mission, the Conference will:
- Promote integrative biodiversity science, linking biological, ecological and social disciplines in an effort to produce socially relevant new knowledge;
- Further develop the scientific basis for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.

The Conference is an important means of synthesizing existing scientific knowledge, identifying gaps and emerging issues, and promoting new research initiatives while also building bridges across countries and disciplines. It also provides an opportunity to investigate policy implications of biodiversity science and consider means of communicating these to various forums including international conventions.

All prospective participants are invited to submit ideas for a symposium fitting within the Scientific Disciplinary Areas (see link). Proposals for symposia are requested by April 30, 2004. Proposed symposia that bridge two or more disciplinary areas are welcome and encouraged. All authors (including oral contributions and posters) will have to supply abstracts, the deadline for which will be announced in the Second Call.
