    • Environmental Information Management 2008

      September 10, 2008 – September 11, 2008

      This conference is intended to bring together informatics practitioners, developers and environmental scientists interested in technologies that enable data collection, description, curation, discovery, access, integration and analysis in all disciplines of environmental research. It provides a forum to build partnerships, explore solutions to the common challenges faced by environmental observatories, and to present advances in community standards, practical system design, implementation and assessment. Share your experiences and knowledge both informally and formally with an oral presentation that will be published in the Conference Proceedings, or a poster or a demonstration of new developments. Provide input to the discussion of future meeting venues and formats.

    International Society for Ecological Informatics

    The 6th Ecological Informatics Conference focuses on interdisciplinary research in Ecological Informatics by providing a forum for quantitative ecologists and biologists, environmental scientists and agencies, mathematicians, engineers, computer and information scientists. After holding previous ISEI conferences in Toulouse (France) in 1998, Adelaide (Australia) in 2000, Rome (Italy) in 2002, Busan (South Korea) in 2004, Santa Barbara (USA) in 2006, this will be the first ISEI conference on the Latin American region.

    • International Conference on Ecological Informatics 6

      December 2, 2008 – December 5, 2008

      Theme: Data and Software Sharing: Key to Sustainable Ecological Solutions

      The Conference Program includes listings of all oral paper and poster sessions and their times during ISEI6.

      Final paper submissions are due December 2, 2008 and should be submitted to Ecological Informatics. Please strictly follow the content and formatting guidelines for Ecological Informatics when preparing your submission.

      Ecological Informatics emphasizes information processing from genomes to ecosystems, meta-information concepts for ecological data management, computational ordination, clustering and forecasting of complex ecological interactions, and facilitating informed decision making for sustainable ecosystem management.

      The conference theme of ISEI6 will be 'Data and Software Sharing: Key to Sustainable Ecological Solutions'. The ISEI6 organisers feel committed to overcome the current fragmentation and incompatibility of ecological data and information, and promote local and global networking, sharing and exploration of ecological information by means of advanced computer technology.

      Selected papers of the conference will be published in special issues of the international journal Ecological Informatics that is published by Elsevier B.V. since 2006.

      Important Dates:

      • Abstracts due (deadline extended): April 30, 2008

      • Early registration deadline: September 15, 2008

      • Full papers due: December 2, 2008, and should be submitted to Ecological Informatics. Please strictly follow the content and formatting guidelines for Ecological Informatics when preparing your submission.
