For the second time, Marine Aquarium Societies of North America (MASNA) will hold its Scientific Poster Session at the Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana, August 25-27.
Made possible by sponsors WAMAS, CORAL and EcoTech Marine, the MASNA Scientific Poster Session allows for aquarium hobbyists, undergraduates, graduate students and scientists to submit scientific posters on their current or past marine aquarium related research projects. This includes submissions from hobbyists that would be seen as advanced aquarists.
This will give the opportunity for 3,000 MACNA 2017 attendees to get up close and personal with scientists and fellow hobbyists and discuss marine aquarium related science.
Posters will be judged by a committee consisting of general hobbyists and scientists. Prizes will be awarded for posters in each of the three following categories: general hobbyists, undergraduate students and graduate students.
Poster abstract submissions are due July 14, 2017.
