STEERING COMMITTEE & STAFF
2017 ENERGY IMPACTS SYMPOSIUM
As the symposium focuses on synthesis and networking, we will accept a limited number of conference presentations (15-20 minute oral presentations). Posters will be featured and highlighted through poster-based networking sessions. Presentations and posters should focus on original research and/or synthesis showcasing the state of knowledge about:
The social and economic costs and benefits to landowners, residents, and communities;
Measuring, monitoring and communicating impacts;
The interaction of environmental change with quality of life and indicators of health and well-being;
Questions of equity and justice in energy development patterns and outcomes;
The efficacy of existing regulatory and governance regimes; and,
Social acceptance and risk perception of energy technologies
Please use the below forms at the bottom of this page for presentation paper and poster abstract submissions.

TRAVEL AWARD OPPORTUNITIES - ESTABLISHED SCHOLARS
The Energy Impacts RCN will offer inclusive travel scholarships to an author/presenter of up to five (5) best or most promising presentation abstracts. The Energy Impacts steering committee will award travel scholarships based on novelty of topic, geography, or approach, academic rigor, and potential to advance the discipline of energy social science. While the committee welcomes empirical research, the committee is most excited about higher-level questions on how to coordinate the social science disciplines in the realm of energy impacts, how to think strategically about energy social science priorities, how to develop and apply social science in ways that are effective in the context of energy development.
Abstract authors are additionally invited to participate in a forthcoming collected volume on Coordinating Research on the Social Impacts of Energy Development to be published by Social Ecology Press and the International Association for Society and Natural Resources (IASNR).
More information is available at www.energyimpacts.org/book Questions regarding abstract submission or the travel award program can be sent to RCN Committee Co-Chairs Jeffrey Jacquet or Julia Haggerty .
