Western Australia

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 amsa@tla.net.au by the 25th Sep.

Email s.strydom@ecu.edu.au for further information.
