The CONFORWest 2014 graduate student conference is approaching and we would like to encourage graduate students from Canada and the United States to participate in this unique opportunity. CONFORWest is an annual conference for graduate and senior level undergraduate students, who are studying environmental sciences, forestry, and other natural resource management fields (including social sciences and humanities). It is organized by graduate students from northwestern North America, who hope to provide a unique and comfortable forum for discussing future challenges in resource management fields, while building networks with peers. We hope to expose graduate students to varying perspectives on environmental and forestry research from outside their disciplines and to encourage meaningful dialogue between students of different research backgrounds.
CONFORWest 2014 will be held from February 6-9, 2014 at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The abstract submission deadline is December 13th, 2013. Attached to this email are the conference poster and abstract submission guidelines. Please distribute widely to potentially interested students.
If you are not responsible for email distribution, we would be grateful if you would forward this email and the attachments to the appropriate person. Please CC us and we will ensure that your email address is replaced with the appropriate contact in our mailing list.
