AESS is actively accepting site host applications for the 2022 conference.
We invite those interested to review the proposal guidelines and submit a proposal today.
Our annual conference brings an interdisciplinary approach to environmental issues in an academic setting. We take a collegial approach where ideas are shared in small, informal sessions that are panel, paper, and presentation based and include roundtable discussions at meals. Students, professors, and government and industry professionals alike participate in lively and interactive sessions that cover topics across the conference theme. Our conference also provides the opportunity to learn about tools, resources, and the host city through exhibitions and field trips.
