Abstract Submission Deadline: 29 January 2016

INI Europe will contribute to session:

0234   Nitrogen and sustainability

Nitrogen is one of the most perturbed natural biogeochemical cycle and a key resource for ensuring both economic and ecological sustainability. It is important to understand the challenges for ensuring ecological sustainability with respect to Nitrogen and build models to provide solutions that help in managing the nitrogen cycle. This session will invite speakers who are working on modeling various aspects of nitrogen's role in ensuring social, economic and ecological sustainability. Systems modeling approach would be at the center. The aim is to develop a network between key scientists who work on Nitrogen through different modeling efforts. Eco-Summit will be a strong platform for such networking and providing the future research directions for Nitrogen and Sustainability. This session will encompass talks focused on nitrogen for wide variety of systems – forest, urban, river, agricultural, economic and industrial. A white paper highlighting the need of modeling efforts for nitrogen sustainability in various systems can be published as a result of session or there can be an opportunity to have a special issue on models related to various aspects of sustainability focused on nitrogen.

Like the Lisbon workshop, INI Europe is also “sponsoring” this workshop in Southern Sweden. Among other, INI Europe will use this platform to take stock of progress before the general INI “N2016” conference in Melbourne, Australia, in December.
INI also invites to a specific breakout session held during the workshop on “Nitrogen budgets and indicators to best practice N management - limits and potentials”.

Abstract submission is now open, deadline is January 20, 2016
