GLIN==> Call for papers- 46th Conference on Great Lakes Research

Posted on behalf of Barry Lesht <bmlesht@anl.gov>

Please distribute to interested parties.

First Call for Papers - Abstracts due by December 13, 2002

The International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) and the
International Lake Environment Committee (ILEC) invite you to participate in
a joint meeting combining the 46th Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research
and the 10th World Lakes Conference. The joint meeting, which will be held
at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, USA, from June 22-26, 2003, is
titled "Global Threats to Large Lakes: Managing in an Environment of
Instability and Unpredictability." Marc Tuchman of the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's Great Lakes National Program Office and Marty Berg of
Loyola University-Chicago are pleased to serve as the Conference Site
Co-Chairs. Jonathan Higgins of The Nature Conservancy, Barry Lesht of
Argonne National Laboratory, and Walter Rast of Southwest Texas State
University are serving as Program Co-Chairs.

This is the first call for papers. All interested persons, whether or not
members of either IAGLR or ILEC, are invited to submit abstracts for
consideration. All oral presentations will be scheduled for Monday, June 23,
through Thursday, June 26, and poster sessions will begin Monday. Both oral
and poster presentations will require an abstract. Please note that oral
presentations will be limited to 15 minutes, followed by a 5-minute
question/discussion period. Depending on the number of abstracts received
and the time available, we may request that some papers submitted as oral
presentations be moved to a poster session.

Proposed Session Topics & Chairs
We encourage authors to submit abstracts for specific session topics but
also will consider general contributions. If you are uncertain about the
most suitable placement for your paper, please contact the special session
chairs. Contact information for session chairs and descriptions of the
proposed sessions are available online. Proposed sessions may be combined
and additional sessions arranged, but this will depend on the number of
abstracts received and on the time and space available.

Abstract Submission
Please limit your abstract title to no more than 250 characters, and the
body of your abstract to no more than 1,350 characters (approximately 200
words). These limits are reinforced by the script online. (See the sample
abstract for an idea of length.) If pasting in the text, it may be helpful
to check the length in your word processor before doing so. Please note that
the code for special characters (e.g., to add italics) counts toward length.
Also note that spaces count toward length. Your word processor might not
count these, so allow yourself some extra room. If you're running close to
the limit, one easy way to gain characters is to use just one space after
each period, rather than the two frequently used.

To be most useful for the conference delegates, abstracts should describe
results and the relevance of the work or research being done as well as the
implications of the work for advancing our knowledge or the effectiveness of
possible, try to make your abstract readable for people outside your field.)
submitted via the IAGLR web site. Abstracts are due by December 13, 2002.
