Bays & Bayous 2018
Please visit our 2018 Alabama & Mississippi Bays & Bayous Symposium website
We are pleased to announce the 2018 Alabama-Mississippi Bays and Bayous Symposium will be held at the Mobile Convention Center in Mobile, AL., on Wednesday, Nov. 28, and Thursday, Nov. 29. The theme of the symposium is "Navigating Waves of Change."
The coastal symposium focuses on (but is not limited to) coastal science research, education, and outreach in the northern Gulf of Mexico. It is a great place for scientists from universities, NGOs and government to share their research findings. Coastal municipalities can also showcase their resilience and conservation efforts. Educators and extension professionals can share research and successful outreach efforts.
The two-day symposium includes several sessions of 20-minute oral presentations (with time for questions and answers), poster presentations, vendors, keynote speakers, lunches and a poster reception.
Historically, each symposium has drawn scientists, students, businesses, educators, non-governmental organizations and concerned citizens. It is held every two years, alternating locations between Mobile, Alabama, and Biloxi, Miss.
Planning efforts are underway. Once the session topics are determined, we will release a call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations.
