Dear all.

We would like to announce that the annual meeting of the UK Regional
Student Chapter of the Society for Marine Mammalogy will be held at the
Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), Oban from the 28-29 January
2013. An Icebreaker will be held on the evening of the 27th of January.

We encourage all students registered in Universities across the UK and
Ireland that are interested in marine mammal research to attend. The
atmosphere of the conference is relatively informal, giving students a
platform to discuss their research with other students.

Postgraduate students are invited to submit abstracts for oral
presentations and posters. For planning purposes, we have divided
presentations into 5-minute speedtalk and 15 minute slots. We encourage new
postgraduate students to talk about their future research plans using the
5-minute slots and for those further along in their studies to present for
15 minutes.

Undergraduates with an interest in the field are also welcome to attend.
The talks traditionally vary in content: from talks by new students
discussing their future plans or the basis of their project, to students
whose Ph.D’s are near completion. Our guest speakers include Dr David
Lusseau (MASTS Senior Lecturer in Marine Top Predator Biology, University
of Aberdeen) and Lindesay Scott-Hayward (Research fellow at The Centre for
Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling). Dr Ben Wilson, Dr
Steven Benjamins and Miss Marie Porter will hold an interdisciplinary
workshop based on the facilities and expertise available at SAMS.

The final deadline for presentation abstracts (max 300 words) will be the
5th of January 2013. There is no registration fee and you don’t need to be
an existing member of the Chapter. You can register for the Chapter at the
same time as registering for the conference.  Registration forms can be
downloaded from our website. Please visit our website for updates
