YES 2016: Science in the Swamp
Erica Brockmeier, YES Program Chair Austin Gray, Out-Going Chair of NASAC
The North America Student Advisory Council (NASAC) is excited to be hosting the 5th SETAC Young Environmental Scientists (YES) Meeting from 28 February–2 March 2016, at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. This is the first time the event will be held in North America. The YES meeting is an all-student SETAC conference, designed for graduate and undergraduate students in the fields of environmental toxicology and chemistry.
The conference agenda includes poster and platform presentations, a career panel discussion, an opening workshop on science communication, as well as laboratory and professional development courses. In addition to the scientific and professional development program, students will have the opportunity to network with their peers while receiving meaningful and relevant feedback from other SETAC students on their research, experimental study design and presentation skills in a less intimidating conference setting.
We are excited for this event and are currently reviewing abstracts for the conference. If you or your organization is interested in supporting this event, we are currently looking for meeting sponsors and are also accepting support on an individual level.
Your support will directly enable environmental toxicology and chemistry students to attend a selection of engaging short courses, network with their peers and future collaborators, and develop professional skills crucial for becoming productive members of the scientific community.
