Spring Symposium on April 8-a new event organized by PCC graduate students

The first annual PCC Spring Symposium will be held on Saturday, April 8 from 9:00am-5:30pm in the Fisheries Sciences Building’s Auditorium and Lobby. This graduate student-organized event will include a wide range of talks by PCC graduate students and postdocs throughout the day, as well as an afternoon poster session with beer/wine and hors d’oeuvres. This promises to be a great event with 60 people already registered to attend! All are welcome to attend all or part of the day even if they did not have a chance to register!

We hope this event will help strengthen the PCC community by providing opportunities for networking, particularly between grad students and postdocs. By keeping the presentations fairly short we hope to provide the opportunity for as many people as possible to share their research with the community. Understanding what others, especially in other departments, are working on with respect to climate is critical for generating the kind of interdisciplinary collaborations central to the PCC. It also gives you a chance to learn to whom you should be directing your ocean circulation/carbon budget/vector-borne disease/etc. questions!

For questions, contact symposium organizer Paige Logan, pdlogan@uw.edu. All are welcome.
