2016 NYSMEA Annual Conference

Dear NYSMEA member,

NYSMEA's Annual Conference, “Island Voices: Promoting Best Practices for Coastal Conservation and Resilience,” is scheduled for Saturday, October 1, 2016 at SUNY Stony Brook Southampton. Please save the date and spread the word, as we would like to increase membership and participation. We hope that many students, educators, scientists and guests can attend.  We are excited and grateful to be hosted by Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS). Here are a few updates regarding the conference: 
  • Highlights will include keynote speakers Chris Paparo, Manager of SoMAS's Marine Sciences Center, and Dr. Chris Gobler, Director of Academic Programs for SoMAS.
  • Conference participants will be able to select from a variety of workshops to attend during three morning sessions. Following lunch and an awards ceremony, there will be several wonderful field trips to choose from, including a 3-hour research cruise aboard the R/V Peconic and kayaking the local waters.
  • Dorm rooms will be available for conference attendees wishing to stay over Friday and/or Saturday nights.
  • Conference details are posted on the NYSMEA website:
  • Look for an email with registration information to arrive by early August. (Early bird registration will be in effect until September 1, 2016.)
  • Interested in presenting a workshop at the conference? Presentation proposals are due August 1, 2016. Presenters will be notified by August 25, 2016.
