Australia/New Zealand Student Chapter Meeting of the Society for Marine Mammalogy (29-30 Nov, 2018, Griffith University, Qsld)

The fourth Australia/New Zealand Student Chapter Meeting of the Society for Marine Mammalogy will take place on November 29th and 30th, 2018, starting at 9 AM at Griffith University (Queensland). There will be an optional half-day R workshop on Wednesday afternoon, November 28th, which will be run by our colleagues at Griffth. This opportunity will be free, suitable for all levels of R users, and open to all interested conference participants.

The Chapter has funding to provide meals during the two days of the conference, as well as the opportunity to cover most, if not all, accommodation costs for those travelling from outside of Brisbane (3 nights; depending upon need). We would, therefore, like to reiterate that all university students (undergraduates to postdocs) from Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, and Southeast Asia are welcome to attend.

We encourage attendees to give an oral presentation (15 minutes) or to present a poster about their current (or planned) work on marine mammals. The deadline to submit an abstract (max. 300 words) has been extended to Friday, November 9th.  Please send an email as soon as possible to with the subject ‘ANZSCSMM Abstract’, along with your name, affiliation, presentation preference, abstract, the state/country you’ll be travelling from, any dietary requirements, and a request for accommodation (if applicable). We will make decisions about travel grants based on the final number of participants. Those chosen to receive a travel grant will be notified the week after the deadline and will be reimbursed at the conference.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact

A schedule and an abstract book will be sent out two weeks prior to the conference.
