We are seeking abstract submissions for the 6th Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology (SUSE), to be held in Brisbane, Australia, from Monday 29 May to Thursday 2 June 2023. Held on the lands of the Turrubal and Yagara people, the interdisciplinary Symposium has the specific aim to further the scientific study of stream ecosystems in urban landscapes. The Symposium shares knowledge between researchers and practitioners from around the world and has sparked influential discussions and publications on problem definition, global similarities and differences, and interdisciplinarity in practice, among other topics.
SUSE attracts an average of 150 participants from diverse cultural, professional, and disciplinary backgrounds. A guiding principle of SUSE is that diversity and inclusivity yield innovation, creativity, and representation essential for transformative scientific advancements and integrated urban landscape management solutions.
We welcome abstracts from different areas of urban stream science and practice:
- Stream ecosystem structure and function
- Stream biogeochemistry
- Stream physical form
- Catchment stressors
- Water pollution
- Stream restoration
- Nature-based solutions
- Urban water management
- Urban planning and policy
- Social science and community engagement
- Climate change
- Other related fields
Abstract requirements and acceptance:
Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words, feature a title, and all co-authors should be listed. Authors must state a preference for oral or poster presentation. We expect there will be more abstracts submitted with preference for oral presentation than can feature in the program. Abstracts not selected for oral presentation will be offered the opportunity for a poster presentation. A stimulating and engaging poster session has been planned.
Should you require confirmation of abstract acceptance earlier than March 2022 to assist with travel arrangements, we will assess early submissions on a rolling basis. Submissions will be assessed within three weeks of submission, and we will confirm acceptance. We will not be able to confirm whether the abstract is accepted as an oral or poster presentation until after the submission deadline.
