Don't forget to submit an abstract to the 2017 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and
Ecosystem Science Conference!
The 2017 conference theme, "Ecosystem Approaches to Gulf Response and
Restoration," encourages researchers to consider the application of their
results to practical use. Scientific research will be critical to informing
planning, preparedness, response and recovery for future events, and connecting
this to decision makers in the response and restoration communities will be
key. Looking across a broad range of disciplines, what have we learned about
oil spills and their impacts that can reduce uncertainty, mitigate ecological,
social and health impacts of a future spill, advance response strategies, and
improve how we approach restoration?
The 23 selected conference sessions
emphasize applications of recent oil spill science to restoration, resource
management and oil spill response. Each session will include invited speakers
and oral presentations; papers not selected for oral presentations will be
afforded an opportunity to participate in the poster session.
Students are encouraged to submit abstracts; the Gulf Research Program and the
Gulf of Mexico University Research Collaborative have generously offered to
cover registration fees for student presenterswhose abstracts are accepted to
the conference program.
The deadline to submit an abstract
is September 26, 2016. You do not need to be registered to submit an abstract.
