General Information

The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association (IEA) invites you to participate in the 19th International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment (IICE)! The conference is motivated by the increasing need to combine ideas and research findings from different disciplines to enhance our understanding of the interactions between the natural environment and human institutions. Conference presentations focus on:

  • What all disciplines have to offer with respect to understanding environmental and resource problems;
  • Possible solutions that are available;
  • The implications of the globalization of environmental concerns.

The conference welcomes environmental academics, practitioners, and interested colleagues regardless of discipline or country. Participants may organize sessions (please ask for “Panel Organizer Guidelines”), present papers, participate in poster sessions, chair sessions, discuss papers, participate in roundtable discussions, or simply observe. The conference also welcomes papers and posters submitted by graduate students, as well as papers and posters submitted in association with chapters of Kappa Alpha Omicron (advisors, please contact shane.epting@unt.edu for details).

To facilitate communication, authors should make an effort to write papers and design posters that can be understood by an audience outside their disciplines. All papers submitted for publication consideration in Interdisciplinary Environmental Review must pass peer review from both within and outside the primary discipline of the author(s). The program consists of:

  • Small concurrent seminar-type sessions with chairperson, presenters, and a discussant assigned to comment on and integrate the ideas of the presentations
  • A poster session with time for discussion with the authors
  • Round-table thematic discussions with moderator
  • Workshops and panels
  • Invited keynote speakers
  • Welcome reception
  • Conference banquet luncheon

There will be an opening reception for all on Friday evening at 7:30 PM. Registration and conference materials will be available at the Reception and starting at 8:00 AM throughout the conference. There will also be a special mixer for students during the conference at a time to be announced.

We welcome research that crosses the boundaries of traditional disciplines to frame environmental problems, propose working models, or address field, community, or academic issues in any area of environmental and sustainability research.
