BOSTON, USA JULY 1-3, 2004 Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS (Deadline for Registration: April 30, 2004) The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association (IEA), in conjunction with Assumption College, invites you to participate in the 10th International INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON THE ENVIRONMENT! 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 are aimed at the educated layperson and FOCUS on:

What all disciplines have to offer with respect to understanding environmental and resource problems; What solutions are available; What are the implications of the globalization of environmental concerns. The conference welcomes environmental practitioners, academics, students and all interested persons regardless of background. Participants may organize sessions (please ask for “Panel Organizer Guidelines”), present papers, participate in poster sessions, chair sessions, discuss papers, participate in round-table discussions, or simply observe. To facilitate communication, authors should make an effort to write their papers so as to be understood by an audience outside their disciplines. All papers will pass a peer review process for publication consideration in the Interdisciplinary Environmental Review. With your help we hope to disseminate the Interdisciplinary Environmental Review around the world to libraries, legislators, governmental agencies, and nongovernmental organizations. The program will consist of:

small concurrent seminar-type sessions with: chairperson, presenters, and at least one discussant assigned to comment on each paper; time allocated for each session is one hour and 30 minutes; round-table thematic discussions with moderator; workshops and panels; invited speakers; pre-conference reception, evening June 30; conference dinner, July 2.
