Marine Ecology in the Gulf of Maine Symposium

Story posted April 16, 2012

Event date(s): May 02, 2012 — May 08, 2012

This year's event will take place on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th on the campus of Bowdoin College, with an optional field trip on Sunday afternoon to the Coastal Studies Center on Orr’s Island. The symposium research talks are open to the public and will feature a distinguished group of invited speakers representing 17 different institutions. In addition, there will be a poster session featuring undergraduate presentations on current research in the Gulf of Maine. On Sunday graduate students will give Pecha Kucha Presentations (20 slides/20 seconds) on current Gulf of Maine research (This portion of the program is open to researchers, students and the Bowdoin community only).

The symposium has two main goals. The first is to bring together a large group of marine ecologists to present and discuss current research within their area of specialty. This symposium is one of the few formal opportunities for ecologists in the Gulf of Maine to gather and discuss their research and its implications. The second goal, new this year, is to increase awareness of student involvement in research in the Gulf of Maine. The poster session and Pecka Kucha Presentations will highlight student research and allow students to receive feedback on their work from leaders in the field.

This program is hosted by Bowdoin College and Trevor Rivers, Bowdoin College's Doherty Marine Postdoctoral Scholar.
Research talks open to the public free of charge. If you are a participating researcher, or student researcher please register below.
