Dear all,

The abstract registration deadline for the UK Regional Student Chapter
Conference in Bangor next year is *THIS FRIDAY*!!

The conference will be held at Bangor University between the *21st and the
23rd of January*.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Interdisciplinary Research’, and
two workshops will take place as part of the conference. Firstly, *Gemma
Veneruso*, who works for SEACAMS, will hold a workshop on marine mammals
and marine renewables. The workshop will cover a number of topics including
particular species and industries of importance, environmental impact
assessments, conflicts of interest and mitigation measures, among others.
Secondly, *Joseph Onofriou*, who works at the Sea Mammal Research Unit,
will hold a workshop on the importance of interdisciplinary research and
collaborations between institutions with varying fields of expertise using
the ‘cork screw seals’ problem around the UK as a case study.

In addition, keynote speakers working in marine sciences are also invited
to the conference. This year, we have arranged three guest lectures from *Dr.
Peter Evans* (Director of SeaWatch), *Dr. Thomas Stringell* (Natural
Resources Wales) and *Dr. Line Cordes* (University of Bangor) who will talk
about their work in marine conservation.
