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.
