Call for Abstracts for 2009 Conference

Talks and Posters Sought for 2009 RINHS Conference:

Rhode Island’s Off-Shore Marine Ecosystem and the Potential Impacts of Alternative Energy Development

To be held Thursday, April 23, 2009
Quonset “O” Club, North Kingstown

The conference, sponsored by RINHS, Ocean SAMP, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, will engage scientists, organizations, and citizens in an investigation of ocean development impacts on marine ecosystems and resources. Rhode Island researchers and resource managers will be joined by speakers from Europe and elsewhere with experience of off-shore wind energy development. In addition to the scientific sessions, there will be organizational displays and presentation of the 2009 Distinguished Naturalist Awards.

RINHS invites submission of abstracts for poster and oral presentations for the conference. Reports of scientific investigations into Rhode Island’s off-shore marine ecosystem and the potential impacts of alternative energy development are especially encouraged, as are submissions by students. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the RINHS Program Committee. If more oral presentations are requested than the schedule allows, the committee may ask presenters to consider poster presentations instead. All presenters must register for the conference.
