The event is open to the public, and onsite registration will be held from 8:30-9 am in 113 Endeavor Hall.
Talented graduate students from SoMAS, Geosciences, and Ecology and Evolution will be giving talks and poster presentations. IOCS participants include:
- PhD student Konstantine Rountos, oral presentation on "Negative effects of coastal fish farms on adjacent seagrass meadows: A study in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea," 9:45-10 am
- Master's student Anna Webb, poster presentation on "Identifying and evaluating under-represented species in fishery management."
The event will be highlighted by a keynote address by recent SoMAS graduate Dr. Aaron Beck, now an Assistant Professor at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Breakfast and lunch will also be provide. You may register even if you are not able to attend the entire event. Full schedule is below.
