Abstract Submission

Thank you for your interest in the 2022 American Ecological Engineering Society Annual Conference! This conference offers a great opportunity for all attendees to network, share research and experience with colleagues, and advance their careers. The conference also provides a venue for professionals and students within the field to share their ideas in the spirit of academic and professional development. One of the main goals of the conference is to showcase the extent to which Ecological Engineering principles are being applied in diverse and innovative ways to solve pressing environmental challenges. We encourage all attendees to take advantage of this opportunity to present on their work, meet likeminded professionals, and learn from each other.
