ESA Scaling Up Workshops: Application Deadline Approaching (Feb 8)

Workshop Application Deadline Approaching (Feb. 8th)
Scaling Up Workshops on Continental-Scale Ecology
Concurrent Workshops for Students and Early Career Scientists
Organized by the Ecological Society of America (ESA)

June 2013 at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute
Linthicum Heights, MD (near Baltimore)
ESA is organizing two concurrent workshops to address new scientific questions at the continental scale and the use of large-scale data in education.  Applications close on Friday, February 8th at 5:00pm Eastern.  Please see the Scaling Up website ( for more details on eligibility, selection, and how to apply to each workshop.

For Early Career Scientists:
Scaling Up: Population and Community Ecology Workshop
Early Career Scientists (no more than 8 years post-PhD) will explore key questions and tools in Population and Community Ecology, as well as identify needs and capabilities for developing new tools to address continental-scale questions.  Participants will have opportunities to develop research agendas and practical applications of continental-scale data across disciplines, examine broader impacts of their research, and form new collaborative research teams.  If you have questions about the early career workshop, please contact Jill Parsons ( 

For Students:
Scaling Up: Future of Environmental Decisions Workshop

Current students and recent graduates will learn about the role of continental-scale science in helping citizens and decision-makers better understand the interaction of local and regional issues and the complexity of environmental decision-making using a case study of the Chesapeake Bay. Participants will have opportunities to work in groups with scientific experts to explore geospatial datasets, present findings to peers and environmental professionals, and explore scientific research practices in the Chesapeake Bay.  If you have questions about the student workshop, please contact Andrea McMillen (
