The Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium will be held April 1-3, 2009, in the Keoni Auditorium at the East-West Center. The symposium is held annually in honor of Professor Albert Tester who, at the time of his death in 1974, was Senior Professor of Zoology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. This year's distinguished scholar is Dr. Daniel Pauly from the University of British Columbia.

The faculty and students of the UH Manoa Department of Zoology proposed an annual symposium of student research papers as a means of honoring, in a continuing and active way, Dr. Tester's lively encouragement of student research in a broad range of fields within marine biology. Today the Tester Memorial Symposium welcomes research from any scientific field.

Papers reporting original research on any aspect of science are solicited from students at UH Manoa, and these papers are presented at the Symposium. Income from contributions to the Albert L. Tester Memorial Fund of the University of Hawaii Foundation is used to provide prizes for the three best papers, judged on quality, originality, and importance of research reported, as well as the quality of the public presentation. Judges include faculty members and the previous year's student award winners. In addition, a distinguished scholar from another university or research institution is invited to participate in the Symposium as a judge and to present the major Symposium address.
