Biological Sciences Student Symposium (BSSS) February 12, 2019 (Darwin Day)

The BSGSA would like to announce that we have been planning the first annual Biological Sciences Student Symposium (BSSS). Our BSSS will take place on February 12th, Darwin Day - and was conceived in efforts to bring everyone together for a day that will highlight the research graduate and honour students are involved in. We encourage all faculty, graduate and honour students to attend the day's events. Most of the day will be devoted to student presentations in regular conference format (12 minutes), speed talks (5 minutes), and posters. The student presentations will be held in the Multi-purpose room in the University Centre where we will have coffee & snacks and a catered lunch.

Furthermore, we have invited a keynote speaker, Dr. Joel Heath, who is the director of the Arctic Eider Society and the SIKU project - winner of the prestigious Google Impact Challenge. You can learn more about that here:

SEA~AES | Arctic Eider Society

A registered charity working with Inuit communities to address cumulative impacts on sea ice ecosystems. Our symbol is the Arctic eider duck, representing the proverbial 'canary in the coal mine' for environmental change in Hudson Bay.

More details will be coming in the new year.
