Abstracts will be reviewed by a committee with attention to conference theme, fit with session topics, quality of work, quality of abstract, and the abstract's fit with the length requirements. 

1. The abstract must be no longer than 500 words. This includes any title or section dividers.

2. Please indicate a first and second choice of session topic (see below) if applicable. 

3. The suggested format is to have three sections: Background/Questions, Methods, Results/Conclusions. 

4. Only lead authors can submit an abstract. 

The program committee invites abstracts concerning these session topics relevant to the GYE:

  1. The History & Future of Wildlife Management

  2. Climate Change: Impacts & Resiliency in the GYE

  3. The History & Culture of the GYE

  4. Complex Ecological Challenges

  5. Greater Yellowstone’s Dynamic Geology

  6. New Partnerships & Ways of Doing Business

  7. Human Dimensions

  8. Visitation/Management Issues


Presentations will be 15 minutes in length. A moderated question and answer session will follow each block of presentations. We will provide a projector, screen, and laptop. Posters will be displayed at the conference site. A reception with an opportunity to ask questions of poster presenters will take place on the second evening of the conference.

 

Both presentations and posters will be evaluated on the following criteria.

  1. Theme – How well does your abstract support the conference theme?

  2. Originality – Abstracts containing significant new findings or presenting new approaches will be given higher scores than those that describe updates, modifications to older findings, or routine applications of well-established methods.

  3. Quality – Abstracts should reflect well thought-out studies incorporating high standards including robust research methods, application of the best available science and theory, and/or add to an improved understanding of the GYE through lessons learned.

  4. Importance – Abstracts should address the importance of the topic in terms of advancing our understanding of the sciences, conservation, communication tools, and management challenges of the GYE.

  5. Presentation – A brief, clearly written, and engaging abstract should follow a logical order, be easy to understand, and inspire the reviewer to want to know more.
