Eco-DAS XIII, October 2018

The following participated in Eco-DAS XIII in October 2018. Each submitted a proposal for a collaborative manuscript. The proposed topics were the starting point for the formation of author teams that are developing manuscripts to be submitted to a variety of outlets. Participants were free to change the topic of their presentation to reflect new ideas that developed in discussions with other participants prior to the symposium. The titles shown below are either the original as proposed, or the revised presentation title. Participants are listed in the order in which they presented.
