Fifteenth Annual CAP LTER All Scientists Meeting and Poster Symposium

The Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research Project (CAP LTER) is hosting its 15th Annual All Scientists Meeting and poster symposium to discuss current research and promote future research on urban socio-ecological systems.

We are particularly interested in posters that present interdisciplinary approaches to understanding urban systems and that represent university-community partnerships. We encourage community partners, faculty, staff, and students to participate by presenting posters and attending the symposium.

Please submit your abstract electronically by November 30, 2012 to Cindy Zisner. The abstract should be single-spaced, 12-point font, no more than 250 words in length, and in Word format (no PDFs please.) Final posters will need to be provided electronically for the CAP LTER website. Posters need not be submitted by the abstract deadline but should be submitted as close to the symposium as possible. Posters often are sized 3 x 5 ft (h x w), but the primary space consideration will be that the final product fits on a 4 x 8 ft (h x w) tack board.

Poster presenters will be expected to make short, 2-minute presentations to the symposium audience before their poster session commences. More details on this will be circulated in advance of the symposium. Poster presenters are expected to attend the entire event (unless class schedule conflicts) and posters must stay on display for the duration of the all-day event.

We award prizes to the best student posters in the symposium. Indicate on your abstract if the lead author is a student. Please provide all of your authors' names and addresses so that these can be included in the program.

For more information, contact Michelle Wolfe, coordinator, Central Arizona-Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research Project.
