What: The Victorian Biodiversity Conference
When: 7-8 February 2017
Where: At RMIT in the City
Super-cheap and easy, great for practicing your presentations skills, meeting other people in Victoria doing similar (and different) research, and networking!
Over two days in February 2017, the Victorian Biodiversity Conference aims to provide graduate students and early career researchers with an opportunity to showcase their work locally, and hopes to facilitate discussion and connections with industry, government, senior academics and the public through stimulating plenaries and panel discussions.
A number of low cost and free workshops will be offered before and after the conference, which are open for all to attend. We invite all graduate and early career researchers undertaking research related to biodiversity to submit an abstract.
The conference is deliberately broad, and encourages a variety of talks across disciplines (e.g. social, ecological, biological sciences) and ecological systems (e.g. marine, freshwater, terrestrial), related to both local and international issues. The only rule is that you must reside in Victoria.
Young professionals (less than 10 years experience) are invited to submit a research project they have undertaken with their current employer.
You will note that Deakin (through the Faculty of SEBE) is a sponsor for this conference (plus one of the speakers is CIE member Dr. Emily Nicholson).
