Also, we will broadcast the talks using a webinar service so that students
who cannot attend in person can watch the presentations. More details to

please send us an email.

*Conference Details*:
The purpose of the annual meeting is to cultivate community among students
studying marine mammals by creating a relaxed atmosphere to share research
ideas, tribulations, and triumphs. It is an opportunity to meet
other students across the region, collaborate, and generally have a good
time in a supportive and informal setting.

Saturday May 21st will involve a full day of student oral and poster
presentations at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (located here

), followed by a group dinner. On Sunday May 22nd we will be offering a
behind the scenes tour of the marine mammal collection at the Burke Museum

We encourage students (grad, high school, and college students, and
post-docs) to present their research. Abstracts for research at all stages,
including proposal presentations and preliminary results, will be accepted. We
also encourage guests (student or non) that are not interested in
presenting to register and attend the conference.

Registration cost is TBD at this time, but will be a maximum of $15 (USD)
and will include breakfast, snacks, and lunch. We'll head out for dinner
and drinks after talks on Saturday!
