SCCWRP asked to co-organize special, virtual HABs national meeting

Posted January 29, 2021

SCCWRP has been asked to co-convene and co-facilitate a special national meeting on harmful algal blooms (HABs) this spring following a decision by the National HAB Committee to postpone its upcoming, in-person symposium due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual meeting, scheduled for May 25-27, 2021, will help address a gap in continuity created by the National HAB Committee’s decision to delay the 11th Symposium on Harmful Algae in the US by one year, until fall 2022. The symposium typically takes place every two years.

The National HAB Committee asked SCCWRP last fall to help put together the special meeting.

The meeting’s theme will be “Emerging Voices and Blooming Careers,” reflecting the National HAB Committee’s desire to create opportunities during the pandemic for students and early-career researchers and managers to present and promote their work.

Registration information will be posted in mid-February to the National HAB Conference’s website.
