Applied Biodiversity Science (ABS) NSF-IGERT Seminar Series – Speaker Nominations
Would you be interested in presenting your research as part of the Applied Biodiversity Science Seminar Series? Do you know of an exemplary interdisciplinary conservation researcher who would be a perfect speaker? Email your nominations to the ABS NSF-IGERT Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ABS Seminar Series has two main components: a speaker series open to the public and a brown bag lunch series for ABS associated students and faculty only.
3-4 Outside Speakers: The ABS Program will fully fund or fund in conjunction with an associated department, researchers or practitioners of international standing whose work relates to applied conservation science. Preference will be given to speakers whose work relates to conservation in Latin America, but other geographic regions will be considered. WARNING – the nominator and their department will be primarily responsible for hosting the speaker while he or she is on campus, though ABS will contribute funding and publicity services.
To nominate a speaker – send 3 or 4 sentences describing the nominee, their affiliation(s), their contact information, and why you think they would be a good speaker for the ABS Seminar Series.
3-4 Internal Speakers: As part of our normal seminar speaker series, we would like to provide ABS-Associated Faculty and Students with the opportunity to present their own research. Topics should relate to issues of applied environmental conservation or restoration.
To nominate yourself – send 3 or 4 sentences describing the research you would like to present and why it is the perfect topic for the ABS Seminar Series.
3-4 Brown Bag Lunch Speakers: As part of our brown bag lunch series, we will be providing the opportunity for ABS-Associated Faculty to present on “work in progress”. The idea is to present on research either partially underway or proposed that have the potential to be expanded to interdisciplinary collaborations with other ABS faculty and students. The speaker will present for about 20 minutes and will end the talk with research questions that he or she is interested in exploring. The remaining time will be spent discussing potential overlap with other participant’s areas of interest or expertise and in developing interdisciplinary research questions related to the topic.
To nominate yourself – send 3-4 sentences describing the research you would like to present on, the opportunities you see for interdisciplinary collaboration and why this is a perfect topic for the ABS Brown Bag Series.
