The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation and its partners invite graduate students, post-docs, and early-career professionals to take part in the seventh annual Student Conference on Conservation Science – New York (SCCS-NY) October 20-22, 2016.
As a part of the only international series of conservation conferences featuring students, SCCS-NY provides opportunities for emerging scientists to professionally network, gain experience, and present and get feedback on their work. Interactions with peers as well as leaders in science, policy and management will encourage collaborations, inspire further research, and create lasting professional connections.
Prizes are awarded for overall best talk, speed talk, and poster; generously contributed by Yale University Press, Island Press, Oryx-the International Journal of Conservation, and the Society for Conservation Biology. Additional awards for outstanding work in land use and stewardship will be presented, courtesy of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy; and for outstanding use of quantitative methods courtesy of Applied Biomathematics.
Last year, SCCS-NY 2015 hosted over 200 participants, representing 29 countries and 15 U.S. states.
“This was a great opportunity and provided a wonderful venue to present my research.”
