The Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) and the University of Nevada at Reno announce the opening of abstract submissions to the Global Fair and Workshop on Long-Term Observatories of Mountain Social-Ecological Systems, in Reno, Nev., July 16-19, 2014.

Abstracts, due Jan. 17, 2014, are sought for any and all of the following:

  • Expositions: Show others what you do through a poster or other exhibit of your mountain monitoring program. Be at the fair to explain your work, meet your colleagues and perhaps develop collaborations with them.
  • Sessions: Propose a topic related to the themes of the workshop that can be used to organize presentations.
  • Presentations: Address the themes of the workshop through a focused short talk.
  • Ateliers: Propose a roundtable discussion with your colleagues about a particular monitoring problem or possibility.

In order to encourage participation from outside Canada and the United States, the MRI will be entertaining requests for partial travel support.
