The Southern California Geobiology Symposium is an annual student-run event designed to bring geobiologists together to discuss current research and build local collaborations. It is an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students and postdocs to present geobiological research in the form of oral and poster presentations. The topics presented span various disciplines including geology, geochemistry, astrobiology, microbiology, oceanography, paleobiology/-ecology and environmental sciences. With sponsorship by C-DEBI, the symposium is hosted in rotation by USC, Caltech and UC Riverside.
It is our pleasure to host the SoCal Geobiology Symposium 2017 at the University of Southern California! We would like to welcome scientists in the area who do research broadly related to geobiology, geochemistry, paleoclimatology, and more. This year, the symposium will take place on April 8, 2017 at the beautiful Mudd Hall on USC campus. We invite attendees of all career levels, and encourage undergraduates, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows to submit abstracts for posters and 15 minute talks. Registration and abstract submission is free. You may confirm your attendance and submit your abstracts by clicking on this link and completing the google form. We look forward to hearing from you, and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to forward this message to other researchers who would be interested in attending as well. Abstract submission is due March 3, 2017.
