Please find below the final call for submissions and registration for the upcoming Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Conference.

 Final Call for Submissions

Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Conference: Research From the Four University Consortium

Hosted by Louisiana State University

Featuring Research from Louisiana State University, University of Louisiana Lafayette, Tulane University, University of New Orleans and the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON)

April 29th: Faculty Club, Highland Road, LSU Campus

This is the third and final call for submissions and registration in the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Conference featuring research from the Four University Consortium.

On Friday April 29th at the Faculty Club on the LSU campus, consecutive sessions will run from 8:30 am to 3 pm. The sessions will be organized around the following oil spill related topics: Fate and Transport ; Water Column/ zooplankton/food chain issues; Benthic Communities;  Modeling Issues; Wetlands; Microbial Ecology; Human Impacts; Engineering issues/solutions; Food Safety; and Hypoxia. Each session will feature a 20 to 25 minute summary of available research findings and emphasize important directions for future research. These will not be standard scientific conference style presentations, but rather summary discussions based on research generated to date with a strong focus on what has been learned and what new research questions this knowledge has generated. The panelists for this portion of the conference will be recruited by the conference program committee. For those interested in participating in this part of the conference activities, please contact Richard Shaw (rshaw@lsu.edu) or Matthew Lee (mlee@lsu.edu ).

In addition, posters will be displayed during the entire day to present the findings from individual research projects, and 90 minutes during the lunch period will be dedicated to the poster session. All submissions for this conference will be poster presentations. Small scale breakout and informal meeting areas will be available throughout the day to accommodate groups interested in establishing new dialogue based on the summary discussions and the poster presentations.  

Eligibility:

This conference is open to researchers from LSU, ULL, Tulane, UNO, and LUMCON. Interested parties from NOAA, GOMRI, and state and federal agencies are also welcome. In the event that poster submissions exceed available space, the program committee will judge submissions for inclusion in the final program.

Registration and Submission Instructions:

There is no charge for this conference. The registration website is available at: http://uiswcmsweb.prod.lsu.edu/research/ored/OilSpill/item25357.html . Registration is required and has been extended to Monday, April 18th at 4:30 pm CST. If there are multiple authors on a submission and several plan to attend, each author should register separately.

Poster Dimensions:
