Sixth Annual Queen’s Northern Research Symposium - April 12th 2018 (link to symposium website)

Queen’s University has a large community of researchers involved with the study of northern issues from various disciplines and featuring a large number of undergraduate and graduate students. The 6th Annual Queen’s Northern Research Symposium aims to bring together students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, and professors for a day of presentations, open dialogue and networking.

If you currently are, or would like to be working on northern-related research, we encourage your participation. The symposium will include a dedicated oral and poster sessions throughout the day. While anyone working in the north is welcome to participate, we encourage students, both graduate and undergraduate, to submit abstracts both for posters and oral presentations.  Researchers new to Queen’s, or new to Northern research, are also encouraged to participate.   Information regarding registration and abstract submission are available on our website (queensnrs.wordpress.com/how-to-register/). Refreshments and lunch will be provided to all who register.

Abstract submission deadline: April 2, 2018

Registration deadline: midnight April 6, 2018

We are once again hosting the symposium in the Biosciences Complex. Talks will be held in Lecture Theatre 1102, while posters will be displayed in the Atrium.

We are pleased to be joined by three distinguished keynote speakers:

Dr. Elyn Humphreys, (Geography and Environmental Studies, Carleton University) giving a talk entitled “Have tundra ecosystems become net sources of carbon dioxide?”
Dr. Daniel Fortier (Department of Geography, Université de Montréal) will be speaking on permafrost dynamics, mitigation techniques and adaptation.
Dr. Valerie Michaelson (Faculty of Public Health Sciences and School of Religion, Queen’s University) will present on “Arctic research, reconciliation and the connections that make us human.”

Please help us promote this event by forwarding this email invitation to Queen’s faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students and others who might be interested in participating.

We look forward to an exciting and engaging day of northern research!
