2018 Workshop & Meeting Request Form
One of the advantages of the ALaska Marine Science Symposium is the ability to network throughout the week. Hotel Captain Cook, the North Pacific Research Board, and Alaska Ocean Observing System all have meeting room spaces of various sizes to meet your meeting/workshop needs. Collaborate, network, exchange--take advantage of AMSS2018 throughout the whole week!
Organizations that host either a workshop or meeting will be responsible for their own audio/visual and catering.
Currently Scheduled Workshops
This year, the Alaska Marine Science Symposium is partnering with the American Geophysical Union and their "Sharing Science" group to deliver a 1.5 day science communication workshop. Participation is limited, but open to all scientists, science communicators, media, and other audiences. One-on-one consultation sessions will be available Monday morning for critque and evaluation of materials, products, and project ideas.

January 21st | All Day
For the past ten years, the workshop event organizers have provided practical information, great speakers and information on current best practices in education, outreach and media. This year we will provide strategies for communicating science to Alaska school and community audiences in ways that it can be immediately used and applied. This will be followed by time in break-out sessions to delve into the practical “how tos” of these approaches to improve your efforts. The workshop is sponsored by the North Pacific Research Board, Alaska Sea Grant, Alaska Ocean Observing System, and the Alaska Fisheries Science Center.
