7th Annual Midwest Geobiology Symposium - 2018

Project: Research project

Description

The Midwest Geobiology Symposium provides a unique opportunity for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to share ongoing research within the local geobiology community. The focus of this event is to give these emerging scholars a platform at which to discuss science, and to build networking and communication skills with peers and established members of the field. This regional symposium is an annual event that has been ongoing since inception at University of Washington in St. Louis in 2002. In the spirit of openness to junior scientists, and in accordance with the tradition of the symposium, we will not be charging a registration fee.

This symposium is popular within the geobiologist community, and expected attendance at this symposium is ~100 people. The Midwest Symposium pulls scholars from within and nearby the state of Illinois, including Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Details about this event will be posted to the Midwest Geobiology Website (www.midwestgeobiology.org) and we anticipate that select talks and posters will be live-streamed, with access to the livestream advertised on this website.
