NorthWest Algal Symposium 2010        First Notice

The 24th Northwest Algal Symposium (NWAS) will meet on the weekend of 
April 16th-18th, 2010 at the Cornet Bay Environmental Learning Center on 
Whidbey Island, Washington .  The Cornet Bay Environmental Learning Center 
is part of the Deception Pass State Park: 
The Center is located on a small sheltered bay and was the site of the 
CCC camp that built most of the park structures in the 1930's.  The site 
has a large dining hall, a recreational center (set up for talks), and 19 
cabins each with 10 double bunks.

We also encourage the participation of the very large and active local 
citizen science and beach stewardship group, the Island County 
Beachwatchers. ( The symposium 
will include oral and poster presentations covering any aspect of macro or 
microalgal research and this year we also particularly welcome talks on 
seagrasses, bioenergy and citizen science.  The symposium will provide an 
excellent forum for the exchange of information and ideas in a relaxed and 
informal setting; long term algal aficionados and novices alike are 
encouraged to participate.  Undergraduate and graduate students are, in 
particular, most welcome!  Awards will be presented for the best student 
poster and best oral presentation.

Housing will be provided on site. Accommodations will be provided in 
cabins,. Arrangements have also been made for group rates at local motels 
in Oak Harbor. Housing is not included with the registration fee.
Meals will be provided from Friday evening through Sunday at noon.  On 
Saturday night, we will be having a catered banquet on site in the dining 
hall. The banquet is included as part of the registration fee. A liquor 
license has been obtained for the symposium. There will also be an auction 
of phycological memorabilia to raise funds for student travel and 
registration assistance.

Students will be encouraged to apply for assistance for travel and 
registration as well as several paying positions to help with registration 
and audio visual equipment.

A field trip will take place in the Deception Pass area, a moderately to 
highly exposed rocky intertidal with very high currents. This will be an 
excellent opportunity for new and old to share knowledge and do a little 

Invited speakers are to be announced.

Please spread the word- all are welcome.  Future announcements will be 
circulated by email and announced on ALGAE-L and the NWAS listserver. 
Also, please join the Northwest Algal Symposium group on Facebook.
