2014 International Conference on Science in Society
Conference

Friday 10 October 2014 - Saturday 11 October 2014, University of British Columbia, Robson Square Vancouver, Canada
This Conference will address disciplinary and interdisciplinary challenges in the sciences, and in particular the relationships of science to society. At first glance, the scope and concerns of the Conference are enormous. However, in contrast to conferences with a specialist disciplinary focus, this Conference aims to explore, in an interdisciplinary spirit, linkages between different areas of concern and practices of investigation. We welcome presentation proposals which range from broad explorations of philosophical, theoretical, methodological and policy questions, to proposals which present finely grained evidence of the connections of science to society in microcosms of research, teaching and practice.



Experimental Approaches to Evolution and Ecology using Yeast & other Model Systems
Symposium

Sunday 12 October 2014 - Wednesday 15 October 2014, Heidelberg, Germany
This conference discusses fundamental questions of evolution and ecology. It explores the use of model organisms amenable to experimental studies of evolution and ecology. It focuses on unicellular eukaryotic systems, but contains examples from other organisms. Invited speakers were selected to bring expertise from a wide range of topics, including evolutionary theory, computation, ecology, yeast genetics, cell biology, genome and protein evolution, and systems biology. In a stimulating environment with presentations from invited speakers and many speakers selected from submitted abstracts, the meeting’s intention is to communicate ideas across disciplinary borders, to foster interactions between researchers with different expertise, with the intention of addressing and identifying new and emerging fundamental questions of evolution and ecology.



Optimizing the Ecosystem-Based Forest Management
Conference

Thursday 16 October 2014 - Saturday 18 October 2014, Université du Québec à Rimouski
The conference will explore ecosystem-based forest management optimization. Indeed, since April 2013, ecosystem-based forest management is now central to the forest management practices on the public land of the province of Quebec. In addition, forest managers are looking to increase stand yield through intensive silviculture. The challenge posed by the development of forestry practices compatible with the conservation of biodiversity attributes while delivering a large array of forest products and services is now an international issue. This conference will offer a unique forum to fully appreciate the recent progress achieved by scientists in a large spectrum of forest research and place these results in a larger picture where choices have to be made by forest managers.



19ième Congrès d’Études Inuit : Le savoir qui illumine
Symposium

Wednesday 29 October 2014 - Saturday 01 November 2014, Université Laval, Québec
Longtemps confinés au statut d’objets scientifiques, les Inuit sont maintenant devenus des acteurs importants de la recherche en milieu arctique, à laquelle ils participent activement. Qui plus est, les savoirs inuits informent désormais le discours scientifique. Autrefois considérés comme des récits d’intérêt purement ethnologique, ces savoirs sont maintenant valorisés en raison de leur richesse, de leur profondeur et de leur précision. Les organisateurs du colloque vous invitent à explorer la contribution des Inuit aux savoirs d’aujourd’hui, en proposant des réflexions sur leurs savoirs, les savoirs scientifiques et la relation souvent complexe qu’ils entretiennent entre eux. Ce colloque s’interrogera sur le partage des connaissances entre chercheurs et Inuit, sur l’impact des savoirs inuit sur les savoirs scientifiques (et vice-versa), sur la relation qu’entretiennent chercheurs et Inuit pendant et après le travail de terrain, sur les manières dont les Inuit abordent et perçoivent la recherche et sur leur contribution à la recherche.

The useR! Conference 2015
Conference

Tuesday 30 June 2015 - Friday 03 July 2015, Aalborg, Denmark



52nd annual meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation
Meeting

Monday 13 July 2015 - Thursday 16 July 2015, Honolulu, Hawaii
The theme for the conference is: "Resilience of Island Systems in the Context of Climate Change: Challenges for Biological and Cultural diversity and Conservation". Conservation of tropical biota is a pressing issue and one that is accentuated in island systems around the world. Many current hypotheses and theories in mainstream ecology have been established in island systems and have been “translated” to other continental contexts. Island systems are also particularly vulnerable to factors such as climate change, invasive species, and sea level rise. Furthermore, human cultures in such environments are also vulnerable. Thus, a theme (although not the exclusive focus) on islands is merited with particular emphasis on the relationship between conservation of both biological and cultural heritage.
