Don't forget to submit an abstract to the 2017 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference!

The 2017 conference theme, "Ecosystem Approaches to Gulf Response and Restoration," encourages researchers to consider the application of their results to practical use.  Scientific research will be critical to informing planning, preparedness, response and recovery for future events, and connecting this to decision makers in the response and restoration communities will be key. Looking across a broad range of disciplines, what have we learned about oil spills and their impacts that can reduce uncertainty, mitigate ecological, social and health impacts of a future spill, advance response strategies, and improve how we approach restoration?

The 23 selected conference sessions (https://custom.cvent.com/D31C0AA42FDF42E9918B4DC41EF12A96/files/825da08c4b4f4cf09c1ef92887a42cf2.pdf) emphasize applications of recent oil spill science to restoration, resource management and oil spill response. Each session will include invited speakers and oral presentations; papers not selected for oral presentations will be afforded an opportunity to participate in the poster session.

Students are encouraged to submit abstracts; the Gulf Research Program and the Gulf of Mexico University Research Collaborative have generously offered to cover registration fees for student presenterswhose abstracts are accepted to the conference program.
