“Working Landscapes”

Attend the 12th PCESC to engage in addressing the latest issues, information, research, and trends in the conservation of prairie landscapes, flora, and fauna, and Species At Risk. Participants will include decision-makers, researchers, fieldworkers, ranchers, producers, industry representatives, consultants, NGOs, Indigenous groups, government staff, community and farm-based organizations and interested individuals. Approximately 300 delegates are expected to attend.

The 2019 PCESC is currently accepting abstracts for poster and oral presentations. We encourage submissions from individuals with diverse cultural, working, and/or academic backgrounds. In addition to oral presentations, there will be a dedicated poster presentation session. The conference has three core themes that will be explored in plenaries and three concurrent sessions. These are:
  1. Holism (Ecosystem Management Approaches)
  2. Agriculture and Conservation (Policy and Implementation)
  3. Collaborative Conservation (Coming Together for Grasslands)
This is an open call for abstracts; however, we wish to encourage oral presentations for these topics:

  • Multiple Species at Risk Management
  • Invertebrates, with Emphasis on Pollinators
  • Soil Health and Regenerative Agriculture
  • Climate Change and Conservation
  • Water Management on the Prairies
  • Grassland Restoration and Preservation
  • Indigenous Rights, Consultation, & Collaboration
  • Public Engagement Strategies & Success Stories
For your submission, please send an email titled “Abstract Submission” to pcesc2019@gmail.com with a Word document including the presentation title, type (oral or poster), abstract (max 200 words), list of authors and affiliations and contact information for the main author and/or presenter.

Oral presentations will be 15 minutes long, plus 5 minutes for questions. Posters will be displayed two to a board so the maximum size is 3.5 x 3.5 feet (42 inches, 105 cm). Posters will be on display for both days of the main conference program.

Deadline for abstract submissions is October 19th, 2018. You will be contacted with the results by early November. Please keep in mind that successful presenters will be expected to work closely with the Editor of the conference proceedings and adhere to their guidelines.
