Conference Registration and Application

If you are a graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, or early-career professional pursuing or considering the field of conservation science, you don't want to miss the 2019 Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York!  

Present your work!

If you wish to present your work as a Talk, Speed Talk, or Poster at SCCS-NY 2019, you must submit an abstract outlining a research project that you have completed or are currently conducting. Undergraduate students conducting thesis-level research may also apply.

The SCCS-NY Review Committee will select abstracts for presentation based on quality and relevance to conservation. Applications will be considered from any conservation-related field, including work in the natural sciences, social sciences, or the humanities. Only one abstract per person may be submitted for consideration.

Applications for Talk, Speed Talk, and Poster Presentations will be accepted between March 1 and April 8, 2019.

All submissions must be made online. The application form will go live on this page on March 1 and will close at 11:59 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on April 8. Registration for attendance only will stay open until September 25 or when maximum capacity is reached. Please note that space is limited—make sure to register in time to secure your spot at this year's conference!
