American Fisheries Society 135th Annual Meeting

Location: Anchorage, Alaska
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2005-09-11    
End Date: 2005-09-15

Event Description:
The meeting’s theme will be “Creating A Fisheries Mosaic: Connections Across Jurisdictions, Disciplines, and Cultures.” A “mosaic” represents a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The collection of events, symposia, and contributed papers in Anchorage is expected to be a stimulating mosaic of fishery and aquatic science, culture, and adventure.

Event programme:
Aquatic resource professionals are now invited to submit symposia proposals and abstracts for papers in a range of topics and disciplines. Participation by scientists at all levels and backgrounds, especially students, is encouraged.

The scientific program includes the following types of sessions: Symposia (oral sessions organized to focus on a single topic; see format below), Contributed Papers (oral presentations on any relevant topic), and Posters.

Oral presentations are limited to 20 minutes: a 15-minute presentation with 5 minutes for speaker introduction and questions. In some symposia, two time slots (for a total of 40 minutes) may be used for a keynote speaker or panel discussion.

All oral presenters are expected to deliver computer presentations. Presenters must bring their PowerPoint presentation to the meeting on CD or USB flash memory stick, and have their presentation loaded onto the session computer by 7 PM the evening before their presentation. Laptop computers will be provided, as will LCD computer projectors, and technicians will be available to help.

The event programme is not yet available, but please check the registration form url!
