I really should be promoting this more than I have, since my colleagues are working hard at organizing it. The theme lends itself well to the kinds of topics discussed on this blog, and the association is very interdisciplinary, spanning across the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities. It would be great to see some of you here this summer.
Let me know if anyone is interested in co-organizing a session on film/media, complexity and the ontology of socio-ecological relations, or something related. Unfortunately the conference conflicts with both the ASLE (Association for Literature and Environment) and ECN (Conference on Communication and Environment) conferences (in Bloomington, Indiana, and El Paso, Texas, respectively), but if you aren’t going to either, Burlington (and Vermont) are great places to visit in late June.
Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences 2011 Conference “Confronting Complexity”
June 23-26, 2011, Burlington, Vermont. Hosted by the University of Vermont.
Plenary speakers will include climatologist Heidi Cullen and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (invited).

Note that the session proposal deadline has been extended to January 23.
