Dear ANZSCSMM members,

This is a friendly reminder that the fourth Australia/New Zealand Student
Chapter Meeting of the Society for Marine Mammalogy will take place on
November 29th and 30th, 2018, starting at 9 AM at Griffith University
(Queensland). There will be an optional half-day R workshop on Wednesday
afternoon, November 28th, which will be run by our colleagues at Griffth.
This opportunity will be free, suitable for all levels of R users, and open
to all interested conference participants.

The Chapter has funding to provide meals during the two days of the
conference, as well as the opportunity to cover most, if not all,
accommodation costs for those travelling from outside of Brisbane (3
nights; depending upon need). We would, therefore, like to reiterate that
all university students (undergraduates to postdocs) from Australia, New
Zealand, the South Pacific, and Southeast Asia are welcome to attend.

We encourage attendees to give an oral presentation (15 minutes) or to
present a poster about their current (or planned) work on marine mammals. The
deadline to submit an abstract (max. 300 words) has been extended to
Friday, November 9th.  Please send an email as soon as possible to

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us! We will be
sending out a schedule and an abstract book two weeks prior to the

ANZ Student Chapter Heads
