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).
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.
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.”
Who Should Attend?
If you're currently a graduate student, post-doc, or have worked in conservation for three years or less, we encourage you to participate! Whatever your focus - biology, social sciences, medicine, economics, architecture, the law - if it has relevance to conservation, we want to include your perspective!
