Shifting Baselines:

BioPhysical Economic 

Models for the 


10th International Conference

This year's BioPhysical Economic Conference will be held on June 9th - 14th, 2019, at the Flathead Lake Biological Station in Polson, MT, USA. This is the second year that we will be enjoying the hospitality and state-of-the-art facilities of University of Missoula's Biological Station. The Station offers a facility with the capacity for intimate meetings where we can easily share ideas. The price will include accommodation and catered meals. We have chosen this site because of its natural beauty, wonderful facilities and relatively low cost. The theme is: Shifting Boundaries: BioPhysical Economics Model for the Anthropocene. We hope that you will consider attending this meeting. We are anticipating a diverse group of scientists who are contributing to the field of BioPhysical Economics and want you to submit an abstract.

This state-of-the-art facility includes access to high-speed internet and modern conference amenities.  For logistical reasons conference lodging will be billed separately. However, food is included in the cost of the conference and transportation to and from the Glacier Park International Airport (FCA) is available upon request.  For those attendees on a budget and wishing to rent a car, we recommend the slightly larger and less expensive Missoula International Airport, MSO (a two hour drive from the conference facilities).
