More than 1,000 restoration ecologists from around the world are expected to attend SER2013, the 5th World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Madison, WI to be held at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center from October 6 to 11, 2013.

Just seven weeks away, the conference will feature a four-day scientific program with over 700 oral presentations, more than 100 poster sessions, a wide choice of field trips to restoration projects and natural areas throughout Wisconsin on Friday October 11, workshops during the four-day scientific program, and pre-conference training courses on Saturday October 6 and Sunday October 7.  Other highlights include a Make a Difference Day Event (MADDE) volunteer restoration work parties at the Lakeshore Nature Preserve and at the UW-Madison Arboretum on Sunday October 7, and a Gala Awards Dinner on Wednesday October 9th.

The general daily program schedule  is online and the detailed session schedule at-a-glance is  available here  for those who want to register for just one day.

Who should attend?  Anyone who practices restoration; anyone who teaches restoration; anyone who does research on restoration projects; and anyone who volunteers for restoration work.

If you have not yet registered do so soon as online registration ends September 27. On site registration will be available during the conference at the Monona Terrace but rates will be higher.
