Registration and abstract submission closes midnight (NZST) 31 October 2020
The 34th annual Australasian Society of Phycology and Aquatic Botany (ASPAB) meeting will be held from 23-24 November for you to view from the comfort of your home or office! This year’s conference planning team recognizes the difficulties we are all facing during the COVID-19 pandemic and we hope this will allow all attendants to stay healthy and safe.
Our annual meetings are friendly affairs, drawing scientists who work in phycology and aquatic botany of all kinds. This year, we will run the conference online for the first time, giving speakers an opportunity to present their work to people from a range of disciplines and reach a wider audience than we have in the past. The conference will begin each day with talks from plenary speakers, experts in the phycology and aquatic botany fields, and continue with 5-minute ‘lighting’ talks from our speakers. ASPAB conferences are an especially ideal opportunity for students to present their work to an interested audience, but we welcome all to submit an abstract. Please see detailed instructions below for abstract submission.
This year, we are also significantly decreasing the price of conference attendance, and for an even greater discount, you can become an ASPAB member (go to aspab.org for membership). The conference price and membership fees directly support our student travel grants, for emerging scientists to attend and speak at international conferences, which we plan to award once we are able to travel regularly again.
Registration opens 1 September 2020. Please use the registration forms linked below. We look forward to you joining us!
