9th Symposium on Harmful Algae in the US: Information and Announcement
We are pleased to announce that the 9th Symposium on Harmful Algae in the US and associated technical workshops will be held in Baltimore, MD, November 11-17, 2017. The abstract submission period for the Symposium is now open, and will continue through June 31st. We encourage everyone who works on HAB issues to attend the only national conference focused exclusively on HABs, whether your focus is freshwater or saltwater, microalgae or macroalgae, basic research and monitoring, or policy and management. Students, postdocs, managers, and scientists from NGOs, academic institutions, and local, state and federal agencies are invited to join us in Baltimore for this Symposium. Please note that travel awards will be available to help defray the costs of U.S. students and postdocs attending the Symposium; travel awards will also be available to assist public health and resource managers. Registration information and additional instructions can be found on the Symposium website (see below).
The meeting will kick off with a welcome reception on Sunday evening (November 12), and will end mid-day on Friday (November 17). Prior to the formal meeting, two day workshops (held in parallel) are planned on Saturday and Sunday (November 11-12), and will be held at the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET). The first workshop focuses on the identification of freshwater (Saturday) and marine (Sunday) HAB species. Workshops on the identification and quantification of marine (Saturday) and freshwater toxins (Sunday) will also be held. Finally, workshops on molecular identification (Saturday) and PAM Fluorometry (Sunday) are also being offered. There are a limited number of spaces available in these workshops, and participation will be granted on a first come, first served basis.
