VLIZ Young Scientist Day - programme completed (2 March)
Added on 2007-01-04 11:51:59
We did succeed to add a special guest to the afternoon programme: Katja Philippart of NIOZ will present the new position paper of the ESF/Marine Board concerning the effects of Global Change in European seas and coastal areas. This report is a updated summary of a group of European marine experts on this 'hot' theme: a must to attend!
VLIZ organises its 7th ‘Young Scientist Day’ on 2nd of March 2007! On this yearly event, 100-200 ‘young’ marine scientists of the North Sea-region (mainly pre-and post-PhD’s) come together and learn to know each other’s work in an informal and interdisciplinary meeting. The concept of former years is kept, with one experienced and four young scientists explaining their research in the morning session. In the afternoon a demonstration session is followed by the presentations of the two VLIZ Thesis Awards Marine Sciences and the international North Sea Award.
Send the registration form before the 3th of February 2007 to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to + 32 (0)59 34 21 31. More information can be obtained at the VLIZ secretary (email@example.com; tel. + 32 (0)59 34 21 30) or Jan Seys (firstname.lastname@example.org; tel.: + 32 (0)59 34 21 40).
You and your co-workers/students can actively participate in the afternoon poster- and demonstration session. The posters presented, and inscribed before the 16th of January 2007, automatically participate in the poster contest. Please, send the title, auteur(s) and English abstract (max. 1 page; follow the template) to email@example.com. The abstracts are published as a VLIZ Special Publication.
We also organize a photo competition. All participants of the Young Scientist Day can participate with a picture from the theme ‘The North Sea’. Pictures (max. 4) must be delivered by the author in a digital format (min. 20x25cm and max. 40x50cm – 300 dpi, File name: FamName_FirstName.jpg) before the 16th of January through firstname.lastname@example.org. In case of massive participation, the VLIZ appropriates the right to pre-select one or some of the images to participate in the contest. The winner, selected by the participants of the Young Scientist Day, receives a prize at the end of the day.
