Call for abstracts

The SAEON Graduate Student Network (GSN) invites Graduate students (Honours, Masters, PhD and Post-doc) engaged in research that contributes to long-term environmental understanding to submit abstracts for the 1ST SAEON STUDENT SYMPOSIUM

Venue: University of Cape Town

Dates: 11-13 September 2007

A wide variety of subjects will be presented in one location over the three days, affording students the opportunity to explore multiple topics relating to long-term environmental research. Top experts on several aspects of long-term environmental research have been recruited to give thought-provoking plenary talks and conduct field trips (fynbos and marine) and workshops. This will provide students with ample opportunity to interact with the scientist.

Twenty full-time South African students will receive full sponsorship from SAEON to cover all costs. These sponsorships are competitive and will be awarded based on individual merit, judged on the basis of submitted abstracts.

The symposium is aimed at students involved in all fields of research that generate long-term environmental knowledge. Participants from "non-traditional" fields such as social studies, economics, public health and environmental education in particular are encouraged to attend.
