Hello Australian and New Zealand Students!

Just a friendly reminder that abstracts (300 words max) are due on the 31st August 2015 for the 2nd Biennial Meeting of the ANZ Student Chapter of the Society for Marine Mammology. The chapter meeting will be held from the 5th-7th November 2015 at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. This conference will provide ANZ students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a relaxed environment while meeting and networking with other marine mammalogy students and researchers. As well, if you are planning to present at the SMM conference in San Francisco the chapter meeting would be a great opportunity to practice and get feedback before the conference in December. The two day conference will consist of student oral and poster presentations along with several guest speakers. We are also looking for four PhD students to take over the ANZ student chapter after the November meeting. If you are interested in attending the chapter meeting and/or running the student chapter please send an email to anzscsmm at gmail.com<mailto:anzscsmm at gmail.com>. In your email please indicate:

1.      If you would like to give an oral presentation or present a poster (If you are unsure which one you would like to do because you are waiting to hear back from the SMM conference then just indicate this in your email and you can decide later)

2.      For non-Sydney students please indicate if you will require accommodation (we have limited funding for out-of-state students to stay on campus at Macquarie)

3.      For Sydney students please indicate whether or not you would like to volunteer.

4.      Please also indicate if you are interested in running the ANZ student chapter after the November meeting.

Additionally, if you are not yet a member of the student chapter please fill out a membership registration from (https://www.marinemammalscience.org/for-students/chapters/australianew-zealand-smm-student-chapter/) and return the form with your abstract submission. For any questions regarding the chapter meeting and/or tasks involved in running the student chapter please contact Anita Murray at anita.murray1 at uqconnect.edu.au<mailto:anita.murray1 at uqconnect.edu.au>, and for questions about volunteering for the chapter meeting please contact Monique Ladds at anzscsmm at gmail.com<mailto:anzscsmm at gmail.com>.
