The Centre for Mountain Ecosystem Studies (CMES), together with the Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) would like to invite contributions for the 2nd International Conference on Mountain Futures, with a focus on “Ecosystem Rhythms, Land Systems, and Sustainable Livelihoods”.
CMES will hold an Open Science Conference (June 6-7, 2018) in Kunming, Yunnan as part of a week-long series of activities which will include field visits in the terraced hills of southeastern Yunnan Province, and a Mountain Futures Film Festival. This scientific gathering will offer Mountain Futures professionals and practitioners, as well as representatives from indigenous communities, policymakers, and other mountain-based stakeholders a platform to present and disseminate evidence-based socio-ecological knowledge–innovations, practices, and technologies from mountain communities.
We invite authors of all disciplines to send us your abstracts for both oral and poster presentations along with your short biographies via our online submission form, before Friday, March 23, 2018. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words.
Authors will be notified of acceptance to the conference by April 06 2018 at the latest.
