April 12-13, 2012 at UH Hilo
Mark your calendars for the 4th Annual Research Symposium sponsored by the Tropical Conservation Biology & Environmental Science Program at UH Hilo! Over two engaging days of presentations about recent scientific research carried out in Hawai‘i, the public is invited to join us on April 12-13, 2012 (Thursday and Friday).
Our goal is to increase undergraduate and graduate student participation in both the oral and poster presentation sessions. To encourage widespread participation, we are offering this event free of charge, and will be awarding prizes for outstanding presentations in various categories.
Whether you are a graduate or
undergraduate student, resident or visiting faculty, or agency
personnel, we invite you to come and share and find out
the latest research in the community around you!
