Call for Abstracts
The Lake Champlain Basin Program is pleased to release a Call for Abstracts for the upcoming Lake Champlain Research Conference (“Lake Champlain: Our Future is Now”).
Focusing on the past, present, and particularly the future of the Lake, the conference will include interdisciplinary sessions on climate change, cyanobacteria, native fish restoration, contaminants and toxins, stormwater management technology, cultural and heritage resources, flood resilience, education and outreach, and more. The conference will bring together Lake and watershed stakeholders, including researchers, management practitioners, and the public, to learn the state of research on Lake Champlain and will provide an opportunity for discussion, networking, and potential collaboration. The conference will be multi-jurisdictional, featuring representation and research from New York, Vermont, and Québec.
Interested researchers are encouraged to submit an abstract for either an oral presentation or poster. Oral presentations will be grouped in topic sessions, and will be 12 minutes long, followed by approximately three minutes for questions. Two poster sessions will be held.
Abstracts are limited to 400 words, and should include information on research background, question, methods, results, and conclusions. It is understandable that some abstracts may lack quantitative data; however, they must still address a question and include a “take home message” with specific findings.
All abstracts must be submitted by 5 PM EST on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. Authors will be notified of whether their abstract has been accepted by Friday, November 17th, 2017, and a conference agenda will be available soon after. Conference registration is required for all presenters (both poster and oral), and will cost $25 (student fee discounts will be available). Registration will open after abstract submission has closed.
