GfÖ Annual Meeting 2018 September 10 to 14, 2018 in Vienna, Austria

Dear Colleagues,
in 2018, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), hosts the 48th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The meeting will take place from 10-14 September 2018 in Vienna, Austria, at the former campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (Alte WU), Augasse 6.
In times of changing conditions, ecological research is facing new challenges. On the one hand, complexity of the biosphere is increasingly reduced by human activities; on the other hand, human activities aggravate predictability of future developments. This poses new necessities for assessing ecological conditions and for discovering new ecological interrelations, which is reflected by our motto of this year, "Ecology - meeting the scientific challenges of a complex world". The conference provides the opportunity to present the state of the art of our scientific field, to interact with other research groups, and to stimulate synergies between the different disciplines. We will compile a comprehensive and interesting program that covers the variety of topics of our scientific community.

We are looking forward to arranging a stimulating conference and hope that you will be able to participate. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our conference office at:

We look forward to welcoming you to Vienna!

With kind regards,
Thomas Frank
(on behalf of the organizing committee)
