My #ESA2012 Monday

For the next few days, I’ll be trying to focus on two areas – 1) climate change & community responses and 2) biodiversity-ecosystem function – with probably a little network ecology thrown in for good measure. I’ll be posting my schedule here not because I want you to stalk me, but rather because it will be a convenient place for me to pull up on my phone to know where I’m going to go next! So, after much back-and-forth on conflicting talks, here’s my tentative subject-to-change-if-I-missed-something schedule. Also, this Monday looks hectic. I may end up missing some of this…

11:30 – 1:15 WK 27 – Social Media for Collaboration, Outreach and Impact F151, Oregon Convention Center Organized by: S Chung, JL Gill
The rapid growth of social media tools and online communities dovetails neatly with increasing need for effective collaboration and outreach in science. This session includes case studies, live demos and best practices for the strategic use of social media and other online tools to improve scientific collaboration, education and outreach.
