Northwest Scientific Association (NWSA)
Please join us for the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Northwest Scientific Association (NWSA) at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel in Boise, Idaho, March 28-31, 2012. Our theme this year is: Networking Science: communication, collaboration, and conservation in a time of change.
Dr. J. Michael Scott, Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources at University of Idaho, will present a keynote address. We will have several symposia including:
- Geo-Integration: Making sense of the overload of spatial data, portals, and analysis tools
- Sagebrush ecosystems: linking biophysical drivers and species change across trophic levels
- The role of citizen scientists in research and education
Presentations will address a broad range of topics and issues in natural and applied sciences. Please consider attending the meeting to learn about scientific research in the Northwest and present a paper or poster to share the results of your ongoing work. In keeping with our theme, we encourage presentations that emphasize interdisciplinary research, incorporate a range of participants, or represent collaboration across agencies.
The Northwest Scientific Association has a strong history of supporting student research and our meetings provide a great venue for students to interact with professionals. There are reduced registration rates for students.
We have exciting field trips planned for Saturday.
Please visit the Society’s web page (www.northwestscience.org) for more details on registration, abstract submission, and updates about the meeting.
Please forward this information to colleagues, other departments, or students who may be interested in presenting research results, or post the attached poster at your work site.
