BP oil spill on their minds

Gene Theodori had no idea that the worst oil disaster in U. S. history would be taking place at this time when he began planning a 2010 symposium on social issues and resource management two years ago.

"When I inquired about hosting the meeting on behalf of the university two years ago, my goal then, as it is now, was to provide an opportunity for the energy industry and environmentalists to come together and engage in a mature discussion about energy development and natural resource issues," he said.

Since its inception in 1986, the symposium has become the premier interdisciplinary scientific meeting for academic researchers, government personnel, land managers, non-governmental organization representatives, students and others who are interested in the human dimensions of natural resources and the environment.

However, according to Theodori, the last 15 meetings rarely had anyone representing the energy sector.

This year's meeting will be different.

"Monday will be 'Energy Day,'" said Theodori. "On that day, numerous research papers focused on energy-related issues will be
