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.
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
The 2021 Call for Student Research Abstracts is now open! Submissions are due on October 6, 2021 at 5:00PM (Pacific).
2021 Submissions will be reviewed with the following selection criteria:
Note that accepted presenters will be judged at the conference on two things: 1) The design and ability of your presentation materials to effectively visually communicate research in an accessible way to a broad audience with mixed interests. 2) Your ability to verbally communicate in an effective way to a broad audience with mixed interests.
One submission per student.
