Thursday, April 15, 2010 - 12:00pm - 5:00pm

The special symposium at the NSF headquarters enabled CHANS scientists to engage with representatives from multiple directorates and divisions of NSF and representatives of other federal agencies.  The event began with a set of short presentations on critical CHANS contexts and on methodological and conceptual advances by PIs of a few select projects.  This was followed by a lively discussion on prospects and opportunities.

The PIs who presented and their abstracts are:

The 2010 Annual Meeting drew approximately 7,000 participants from all over the world. The CHANS sessions consisted of nine oral, panel and illustrated paper sessions in which approximately 50 CHANS scientists presented original and innovative research emphasizing reciprocal interactions between human and natural systems (i.e., not only human impacts on the environment, but also impacts of the environment on humans), at multiple spatial, temporal, and organizational scales. Interest in the sessions was strong, with some drawing standing-room only audiences.
