Symposium Structure  

The 4-day symposium (May 19-22) will consist of:

  • Plenary sessions in the mornings and afternoons with a very limited number of oral presentations

  • Breakout group discussions each day, where groups are charged to consider and recommend priority research and infrastructure needs to gain better insights on the linkages of climate change and HABs. Recommendations will be reported back to participants for further discussion and refinement.

  • Poster Sessions with dedicated viewing times on May 20-21 mornings to facilitate extensive discussion of poster results.

There will be no concurrent sessions during the symposium, though there will be 3-4 concurrent breakout group discussions. The goal is to gain consensus on the priority research themes that will provide HAB researchers, managers, and climate scientists a path forward for maximizing our understanding of the linkages of HABs and climate change.

Posters will have a prominent role in the symposium and will be on display for the entire duration of the symposium. All health breaks will be held in the poster area to maximize opportunities to view the contributions and to interact with presenters.

IMPORTANT: The number of participants in the symposium will be limited to about 120 in order to facilitate productive breakout group discussions. Register and submit your abstracts early in case participation will be capped before the registration deadline.
