Invitation of the Conference Chair SEFS 8, 2013 Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, We cordially invite you to join the 8 Symposium for European Freshwater Sciences, which will be held in Münster, Germany, from July 1-5, 2013. th
The meeting is hosted by the German Limnological Society (GLS) in collaboration with the University of Münster (WWU Münster) and co-organized by four regional LIFE+ projects (running water). The organizers are pleased to have the opportunity to convene the conference. SEFS 8 aims to integrate recent achievements of science from ecological and evolutionary perspectives to promote innovative solutions for the sustainable management of our freshwaters in the face of increasing environmental pressures. The guiding theme is “Freshwater science for nature and society”. Münster is a place with a tradition in limnology. About 100 years ago, August Thienemann, one of the founders of the International Society of Limnology (SIL), spent the first years of his scientific career in Münster, from 1907-1917. Since that time, many interdisciplinary research groups focusing on fundamental and applied water sciences have been established. They are affiliated to different faculties and departments within the WWU and the University of Applied Sciences. Active local and regional communication between water authorities, agencies, and academic institutions engaged in water-related and environmental issues yields a close and fruitful linkage of science with practice. Münster is not only a city of science and learning, yet outstanding in many respects – come and see! We are looking forward to meeting you and your Company to present their services and products at the SEFS 8, 2013 in our great city and anticipate a seminal, inspiring conference. On behalf of the Organizing Committee Prof. Dr. Elisabeth I. Meyer President of the German Limnological Society University of Münster Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Department of Limnology Conference Chair SEFS 8, 2013
Freshwater Science for Nature and Society The symposium aims at integrating recent insights from ecological and evolutionary perspectives into improved knowledge of the diversity, dynamics, and functioning of freshwater ecosystems. Freshwaters and their biota are increasingly subject to anthropogenic pressures and a complex interaction of abiotic and biotic stressors. Hence, understanding of the causes and effects of environmental stress in reference to the natural state of freshwater systems, and implementation of this knowledge shall foster innovative research and solutions for sustainable management and societal concerns. The meeting will provide a cross-disciplinary platform for discussion of research ranging from the level of genes and cells to ecosystems and landscapes. We welcome contributions from all fields of freshwater science, ranging from theoretical and basic to methodological and applied studies, and particularly encourage integrative approaches.
City of science, city of sculptures, city of the Peace of Westphalia, city of bicycles, Hanseatic city Münster is a living metropolis with many faces.
