2021 Conference

Our Changing World

BioPhysical Economic 

Models for the 


10th International Conference

This year's BioPhysical Economic Conference will be held online from September 7th - 10th, 2021. The conference theme is Our Changing World: BioPhysical Economic Models for the Anthropocene. We are anticipating a diverse group of scientists who are contributing to the field of BioPhysical Economics and want you to submit an abstract.

ISBPE has determined that it is necessary to transition all in-person conference content previously scheduled to take place at the BioStation in Flathead Lake, Montana USA to the online conference.  This change is an unavoidable consequence of the ongoing public health and safety concerns created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Conference Registration FREE for all Students

ISBPE has chosen to use the funds previously allocated to the in-person conference to waive the online conference fees for all students. We know that many students face significant long-term financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In times of crisis, it is more important than ever that we consider the needs of everyone in our community. To this end, ISBPE wants to ensure that all students have the ability to attend this year’s conference independent of their financial circumstances.  Visit our conference registration page for more details.
