This year's conference program has been organized in response to the survey of attendees from 2009 in Montpellier, France. You can find the preliminary program online at:
The specific points we've addressed this year include:
* Providing opportunities for more presentations from more presenters. We have opened the program via this call & have added a round of Lightning Talks so that more people within our community can tell you about the fascinating work they're doing.
* Finding a balance between time allotted for plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and working groups.
* Combining an excursion with a 2-day biodiversity survey featuring a variety of activities. More details on the biodiversity survey will follow.
* More time during coffee & lunch breaks to allow for side discussions.
To submit an abstract for this year's conference, please follow the instructions at:
