Upcoming event: Marine Snapchat
For this event, marine science professionals prepare one slide coupled with a one minute presentation (no animations) to communicate their work to fellow marine enthusiasts. The evening will be divided into four sessions and provides an opportunity to informally share findings and experiences with fellow marine professionals.
When: 17:30-20:30, Wed 27th Sep
Where: Kim Beazley Lecture Theatre, Murdoch University
The event is free for AMSA members, or $10 for non-members, with some food and drinks provided. Let me know if you would like to register your interest to attend or present ASAP. You will need to fill out the registration form should you wish to present and send this to me, and then send your powerpoint slides to email@example.com by the 25th Sep.
