Workshop: ICB Editor's Challenge to Define Stress

Marty Martin, Editor-in-Chief of Integrative and Comparative Biology, and the Associate Editors will host the first annual Editor's Challenge, a 1-day workshop at the SICB meeting in San Francisco on January 3, 2018, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The challenge this year is to define stress.

This workshop will proceed as follows. A few invited speakers will give 10-minute talks on their definitions of stress. In between each 10-minute talk, the floor will be open for 10 minutes to engage the speakers or the audience on related topics. Following all talks, all participants will work in small groups to discuss stress. Aspects of these discussions will eventually be transformed into synthetic papers, which will be reviewed for publication in Integrative and Comparative Biology.
