Annual meeting of the Association for Environmental Studies and Science
The annual meeting for the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences usually has submission deadlines in January, and the conference is usually held in June.
Description: AESS is an explicitly interdisciplinary organization that seeks to serve faculty and students in higher education, and its annual meeting is thus strongly interdisciplinary with a broad focus on environmental research and teaching. It is frequently attended by scholars in a wide variety of environmental disciplines, in the natural and social sciences as well as the humanities.
In the roundtable discussions offered at AESS, participants engage in discussion and/or planning around a particular theme or challenge; these can be good opportunities to meet other researchers, generate ideas, and discuss your research as it relates to the broader theme of the roundtable discussion.
Co-sponsored since 1992 with the Association for the Study of Food and Society, AFHVS annual meetings are a site for constructive, in-depth discussion of current agricultural and food systems issues in their broadest social, cultural, economic, ethical and aesthetic context. AFHVS annual meetings include paper presentations, panel discussions and other activities organized around a provocative agricultural or food-related theme. Each meeting program includes visits to nearby farms, parks, museums, and other sites of natural and cultural interest. Recent annual meeting themes include:
- Visualizing Food and Farm
- Varieties of Sustainability: Ethics, Environment and Economic Consequences
- Cuisine, Agriculture and Social Change
- Environment, Culture and Food Equity

The International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (2014 symposium website | 2015 symposium website), hosted by the International Association for Society and Natural Resources, usually has submission deadlines in January, and the conference is usually in June.
Description: ISSRM is an interdisciplinary conference attended by academics and practitioners, hosted by the International Association for Society and Natural Resources. It’s one of the main conferences for human dimensions of natural resources and the environment.
The Student Forum pre-conference can be particularly valuable – it provides an opportunity to network among peers and professionals, and it’s designed specifically for students.
