Deadline for Presenters (Talks and Posters): Wednesday, November 14th
The EEB December Symposium provides an opportunity for ALL graduate students, faculty, and staff to present and learn about current and proposed research in ecology, evolutionary biology, and related fields. Anyone interested in these areas of research is welcome to participate! That means you, whether you're a grad student, post-doc, research associate, faculty member, or someone who just loves science!
The Whittaker Award will be given for the best oral presentation by a Cornell graduate student in any field and the Book Award will be given for the best oral presentation by a 1st year Cornell graduate student in the field of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Both awards include a small monetary sum.
To give a 10-12 minute talk, please register no later than Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 by sending a title, abstract, and any scheduling preferences to Kelsey Jensen, email@example.com
Limit abstracts to 250 words or less and format them as follows:

[TALK TITLE] A unified view of the evolutionary process.
[ABSTRACT TEXT] "Views on the relative importance of different evolutionary processes are often in conflict..."
If you or students in your lab would like to present a poster instead of a talk, Sigma Xi is hosting a poster session as a part of the symposium. Undergraduate researchers are welcome to submit posters, in addition to grad students, post-docs and faculty. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please submit a title and list of authors to Kelsey by Wednesday, November 14th. Sigma Xi is offering a prize for the best poster, as judged by graduate student Sigma Xi members.
To vote and register for the workshop, please complete this quick, 2-question survey.
