Virtual Workshops
We invite proposals to host a 1.5–3 hour virtual workshop either the Wednesday before the conference or on one of the evenings. The time of the workshop will be based on the timezone of the host. Interactive workshops are highly encouraged as we think creatively about things that are important to ethnobiologists (e.g., climate change, community engagement, teaching, activism).
 

You will also be asked to indicate your time zone, as well as select 2–3 (or as many as apply) time blocks in which you could chair your session. Please see the time block chart below:
