12th International Conference on the Applications of Stable Isotope Techniques to Ecological Studies

Gaming, Austria

May 31 - June 6 2020


Welcome to IsoEcol 2020

The 12th International Conference on the Applications of Stable Isotope Techniques to Ecological Studies will be held in the beautiful town of Gaming, Austria, organized by the Inter-University Center for Aquatic Ecosystem Research WasserCluster Lunz in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from May 31-June 6, 2020. The conference venue is at the historic Kartause (Charterhouse) in Gaming (pronounced Gah-ming), approximately 2 hours travel from Vienna by car or public transportation.

IsoEcol is one of the best scientific meetings for experiencing interactive presentations in a congenial atmosphere where graduate students, professors, and researchers discuss the use and potential of isotopes in the aquatic and terrestrial ecological sciences.

IsoEcol 2020 brings together international researchers from universities, industry and government with common interests in the development and application of stable isotope techniques to help solve all sorts of ecological problems. Various thematic sessions within the aquatic and terrestrial ecological sciences are encouraged, including:

  • Freshwater and marine aquatic isotope ecology
  • Terrestrial isotope ecology from individuals to communities
  • New models and conceptual approaches using isotopes in ecology
  • Isoscapes and movement ecology
  • New instrumentation and analytical advances in isotope ecology
  • Ecophysiology and isotope biochemistry

IsoEcol features non-parallel sessions to ensure cross-disciplinary exposure and learning opportunities, along with poster sessions, and mid-conference field trips and great social activities, including local food and beer. We offer specialized workshops by leading researchers.
