Reflections on the 2013 Biennial CEED Conference

2-6 September 2013, St Lucia Campus, University of Queensland

Every couple of years the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) brings together in one place its far flung network of
people for a biennial conference. Unlike most conferences, these CEED get togethers are not about running from session to session to seek out the best talks. They are more focussed on the sharing of ideas as a group – ideas for future CEED work and innovative new ways of doing decision science. It’s about generating interaction and links between all members of CEED across the different nodes. It’s the one time every couple of years that we all get to be in one place and talk to each other.

And so it was with CEED’s recent biennial conference at the University of Queensland. With over 150 people in attendance and the emphasis on interaction, much talking and good fun lay at the core of the event. Of course, we did have talks, but the emphasis was very much on creating a forum for sharing and discussion…
