5th Annual WDAFS Student Colloquium

Each year, WDAFS supports a Student Colloquium, organized and sponsored by a WDAFS student sub-unit. This year, the colloquium will be held in conjunction with the WDAFS Annual Meeting, organized and sponsored by the newly recognized Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México Subunit of the Mexico Chapter of the American Fisheries Society (UNAM-MFS).

The colloquium is an opportunity for students to present research to an audience of their peers. At the end of each presentation, the audience is able to ask questions about the research, as well as to provide feedback on the presentation itself.

The Colloquium will be held on Monday, April 7, so student attendees will also be able to present and attend presentations at the main portion of the annual meeting without conflict. In addition to presentations, the colloquium will include a welcome social, to be held Sunday evening. Monday will open with keynote speaker, WDAFS President Pam Sponholtz, followed by presentations and a Career Development workshop.

Whether you are a student who has never presented research before or a seasoned student presenter, the Colloquium provides an excellent opportunity for practice and to hone your presentation skills. Students are encouraged to present at the colloquium whether or not they will be presenting in a general session or another symposium as well.
