Call for Abstracts
The UK Regional Student Chapter of the Society for Marine Mammalogy would like to announce the 2009 Annual Meeting taking place in the Sea Mammal Research Unit, University of St Andrews. Following our members suggestions we have increased the duration of the meeting which will this year be a 3-day event, to be able to include two afternoon workshops and an afternoon of discussion.We invite postgraduate students enrolled at UK Universities to submit abstracts for oral presentations (max 300 words). Presentations can relate to any aspect of marine mammal research. Oral presentations should be timed for 12 minutes followed by 3 minutes for questions.
Registration for the conference is free! You just have to submit the attached registration form filled in (also available on our website).
Submission of abstracts should be done as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org before 1st December 2008. We also invite all participants to bring along a poster for display during the annual meeting (preferred but not compulsory).
If you are a student enrolled in a UK university studying marine mammals and haven't already done so, join our chapter! Becoming a member is free of charge and all you have to do is send us an email. As a member you will receive information about all the activities organised by the chapter, as well as be able to join our Facebook discussion forum.
You can visit our website(www.st-andrews.ac.uk/~ukrscgrp) to find out more about us. If you have any questions regarding the conference please email us at email@example.com.
We look forward to meeting you in 2009!
