The student research exhibition is typically a dedicated time when conference participants can interact with student researchers as they explain their marine-related research. For 2021, the session is moving to a virtual format again that will include short “ignite-style” presentations. This remains an opportunity for students to showcase their research and gain professional experience.

Annual Student Exhibition

State of the Coast invites contributions from advanced undergraduates (juniors or seniors), recent graduates and graduate students.

We welcome submissions from any discipline related to issues and opportunities facing the marine environment: biology, anthropology, law, engineering, policy, chemistry, business, ecology, environmental science, management, and more!

Goals of student engagement at State of the Coast

  1. Professional development for students; providing an opportunity for students to share their work and get feedback on how well they communicated about their research.
  2. Sharing a diversity of student research and art, so that conference attendees get a holistic look at current work by Oregon students.
