12th International Conference on the Applications of Stable Isotope Techniques to Ecological Studies
June 6-10, 2022
The 13th IsoEcol (2024) will be hosted at the University of New Brunswick in Canada hosted by Brian Hayden and his team at UNB's SINLAB.
The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is home to the Stable Isotopes in Nature Laboratory (SINLAB), with a proud history of research in the field of stable isotope ecology. UNB and Fredericton have all of the amenities and friendly atmosphere to ensure a successful conference. The first IsoEcol was held in Saskatoon on the Canadian prairies in 1998 and so it is fitting to return to Canadian soil three decades later. This is an exciting time for stable isotope ecology in Atlantic Canada with new research groups in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia joining established centers such as the University of New Brunswick and Memorial University in Newfoundland. The meeting will be held at the Wu Center, a state-of-the-art conference facility at UNB. This facility provides full tech and AV support for participants, and high-speed internet to facilitate hybrid participation in the conference. As the provincial capital, the city of Fredericton offers a wide variety of accommodation from inexpensive university dorms to quaint B&B’s and a selection of chain hotels in the downtown. The Fredericton airport is a 20-minute drive and has daily flights to international airports in Toronto and Montreal. There is a land border with the USA nearby, so road trips are also viable for the adventurous attendee. Fredericton is home to the highest density of breweries in Atlantic Canada with a wide variety of food and drink options within walking distance of the venue. The mid-conference break will well catered for; day trip options include whale watching and beach combing tours on the Bay of Fundy, angling trips in search of Atlantic salmon and striped bass on the Miramichi River, excursions to local vineyards, and guided canoe trips on the Wolastoq (Saint John River). On behalf of the organising committee, I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful home for an exciting week of collegial science and iso-fun in 2024!

Director of the Stable Isotopes in Nature Laboratory
The 12th International Conference on the Applications of Stable Isotope Techniques to Ecological Studies was held from June 6-10, 2022, organized by the Inter-University Center for Aquatic Ecosystem Research WasserCluster Lunz.
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.
We bring 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:
New ideas and a collaborative project
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
