To all students and postdocs:

The graduate students of the UF Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience would like to invite you to our seventh annual Science by the Shore Symposium, which is open to all scientific disciplines. This event will take place all day Saturday, September 21, at Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience in St. Augustine. 

Enjoy a Saturday filled with casual research discussion and presentations, friendly competition, sunshine, tours, and the beach. 

Undergrads, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows from many different departments and universities attend, so anticipate learning from, and explaining your research to a diverse audience united by scientific curiosity. We also encourage undergraduates involved in research to come and explore their post-graduate options. 

Breakfast and registration open at 9:30 a.m., and talks begin at 10 a.m. sharp, allowing time for a commute to the Whitney Laboratory. If you are interested and would like to join us, attendance is limited so please fill out the registration form by September 6th.


Attendees have the option to present research in a 10-minute talk, 5-minute talk, poster, or poster blitz (draw your poster on the spot!). Students interested in attending the Symposium without a presentation are also welcome. There is also the opportunity to compete in an optional vote-based competition for best poster and best talk with prizes. Registration fees are to be paid online ($25) through the online registration form and will cover three meals, drinks served throughout the day and fun symposium giveaways. 

Please register by September 15, using the link below, and join us for a fun, casual day at the beach where we can discuss diverse research topics, engage in outdoor activities and get to know more peers from outside of our individual fields.

See you there!
