Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO)

City: 
San Juan
Country: 
Puerto Rico
Dates: 
23 Feb 2019 - 2 Mar 2019
Submission deadline: 
22 Oct 2018

A wealth of topics will be discussed at the meeting, many stemming from key areas of importance to the area itself at this crucial time – the role of science at the center of all economic, societal and environmental recovery and development efforts, studies on renewable energy, environmental sustainability, clean water, and rebuilding and maintaining terrestrial ecosystems.

Science and innovative problem-solving are keys to creating a better and more resilient world, and this speaks truth to the residents of Puerto Rico. While ASLO’s meeting in San Juan will benefit Puerto Rico for the short-term, the outcomes of the ASLO 2019 Aquatic Sciences Meeting can impact the island for the long-term. This presents an excellent opportunity for ASLO to showcase how they are doing their part to train scientists in communication to the public and to teach effective research skills to future generations. As with all ASLO meetings, organized activities will be available that will allow participants to use culturally-relevant projects and strategies to make science more engaging.
