Eco-DAS VIII 2008

The following individuals participated in Eco-DĀS VIII, October 2008. Each contributed a proposed chapter outline, in some cases with another participant. These proposed chapter topics formed the basis for collaborative chapters in the symposium proceedings, an open-access, web-based book published in 2010.
