The 17th Biennial Conference of the International Society for Ecological Economics will take place in Colombia during the week of 23rd -28th October 2023. The conference is organized by an inter-institutional consortium composed of the following Colombian Universities: Universidad del Magdalena, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad de Los Andes, and Universidad del Valle, and by the Mesoamerican and Andean Societies for Ecological Economics. The conference will have two main events, starting with a specialized course for decision makers from across Latin America and other stakeholders, to be held on the 23rd and 24th of October in the capital city of Bogotá, followed by the main conference, comprised of academic sessions and dialogues between ways of knowing, which will take place in the Caribbean city of Santa Marta, from the 26th to the 28th of October.
The conference will employ several innovations inspired by our shared experiences of mixed formats in recent years: sessions will be organized around both regular and special tracks, as well as by format-free events, such as courses, workshops, and artistic interventions. A platform for uploading and viewing pre-recorded academic presentations will be provided on the conference website, creating a new mixed format environment that enables us to allocate more time to Q&A and discussion of presentations during the in-person sessions.
17th of February 2023 for Regular Tracks
2nd of May 2023 for Special Tracks and Format-free Events
See here what we mean by regular tracks, special tracks, and format-free events.
The conference in Santa Marta will be bi-lingual (Spanish and English). Submit proposals of regular tracks, special tracks, and format-free events in any of these two languages.
The specialized course in Bogotá will be in Spanish.
NOTE: Proponents must choose the language of their track or events (either English or Spanish). Sessions with both languages are not possible because simultaneous translation is not available during the conference.
