Aloha UH scientists,

We invite submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentations at the annual Tester Memorial Symposium, hosted by the Department of Biology at UH Manoa. The call for abstracts will close on Feb 15, 2014.

This year we are extremely delighted to have Dr. Sylvia Earle as our distinguished guest. Dr. Earle is a world renowned conservationist, former chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Time Magazine’s first "Hero for the planet", a National Geographic explorer-in-residence, and founder of Mission Blue. You can find one of her many bios here. She will be giving two different presentations: one onWednesday, March 12 (place TBD) and Friday, March 14th at Keoni Auditorium. There will also be several opportunities for interested students and faculty to meet and talk with her during her visit.

The Testers Symposium is a wonderful opportunity for graduates and undergraduates to present their research or proposed research to a friendly audience. This year we will feature 3 types of presentation forms: posters, 5-min presentations and 15-min presentations.

Please find the attached PDF for your abstract submission. In order to submit your abstract, you MUST have adobe reader and you must be connected to the internet.  If you do not already have adobe reader you can download it for free here.

Submit an abstract to the Tester Symposium using this PDF for your abstract submission here.

Once you have finished typing in all the required fields on the PDF please press the submit button on the top right-hand corner of the PDF. You will be prompted with a message asking if you trust this program: click "allow".  You will know that your submission was successful because a box will pop-up that says "Thank you for submitting your abstract to the Tester Symposium".  If you do not see this pop-up, you have not submitted your abstract. Please save a copy for your own records, but there is no need also email us a copy too.

Please see the new website for information on the Tester Symposium and click here for tips on how to write a successful abstract. 

We are also seeking volunteers to assist in operating the symposium and faculty session chairs to manage oral presentations.  More information regarding these volunteer positions will follow.

Please consider being a part of this special event and sharing your research with a diverse science community here at UH.  Once again, we are asking for help from faculty members to distribute this call for abstracts to both graduates and undergraduates!  Thank you.
