  2010 Annual Call for Abstracts: Poster Session and Student Research 
Presentation Session

  The American Cetacean Society has extended the deadline for submission 
of abstracts to the Student Research Presentation Session and Poster 
Presentation Session at the 12th Biennial International Conference, 
November 12th-14th, 2010 in Monterey, CA.

  The Student Research Presentation Session is devoted exclusively to 
research presented by undergraduate and/or graduate students, and is 
intended to encourage discussion and facilitate the exchange of current 
information pertaining to cetacean research, conservation, policy and 
education. It also provides an opportunity for students at universities 
and institutions to gain presentation experience in a professional 
environment, and presents a forum in which existing professionals may 
meet their rising peers. Abstract submissions will be accepted from 
current undergraduate or graduate students, student interns, and 
recently graduated students (within the past year) who conducted their 
work prior to graduation. Student authors must be from accredited 
institutions of higher education.

  The Poster Presentation Session will showcase a variety of programs 
and projects based at education institutions, agencies, and non-profit 
organizations. All are invited to submit abstracts for review. Posters 
addressing diverse topics within the fields of cetacean research, 
conservation, policy, and education, are welcome. Poster presentations 
will be displayed in the Exhibit Hall throughout the duration of the 
conference. During regularly scheduled morning and afternoon breaks, 
presenting authors should be stationed by their posters to facilitate 
interaction with conference attendees.

  Abstracts for both the Poster Presentation Session and the Student 
Research Presentation Session will be accepted through Saturday, July 
31, 2010. To obtain submission guidelines and forms for either session 
please contact the ACS office at acsoffice at acsonline.org.

  Please direct any questions to Cheryl McCormick, Executive Director, 
American Cetacean Society, at: c.mccormick at acsonline.org (310)
