Conference

  • The 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
    The Program Committee of the 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is pleased to announce the next conference in this series, which will focus on the challenges and opportunities posed by crossing environmental, disciplinary, and jurisdictional boundaries. The conference will be held October 6‒8, 2014 in Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.  The Greater Yellowstone biennial scientific conference series, initiated in 1991, encourages awareness and application of wide-ranging, high-caliber scientific work on the region's natural and cultural resources. These conferences, with the active involvement of professional societies and other institutions, provide a much-needed forum for knowledge-sharing among hundreds of researchers, park managers, and the general public. They attract world-class speakers and are interdisciplinary by design. 
    Please visit the conference website at:12thbiennialscienceconference  for additional information as it becomes available. You may also email: teleconference@nps.gov.
