Joint Aquatics Sciences Meeting
May 14 - May 20
Collaboration among disciplines is critical to address common problems, whether in wetlands, streams, lakes, or oceans, and to study these problems from an ecosystem perspective. Collaboration is also necessary to conduct translational research that delivers actionable results which support science-based solutions. We encourage presentations that engage scientists, practitioners, and others from across the spectrum of the CASS members and embrace unique perspectives offered by our colleagues both inside and outside the organizations of CASS. We look forward to presentations exploring all aspects of aquatic science.
The Hybrid Conference Model
One important lesson from the pandemic has been the value of providing remote access to scientific meeting content. This has allowed registrants broad access to the science, not just the slim subset of presentations that they might have attended in a pre-pandemic live event. JASM2022 will employ a hybrid meeting model to create an exciting in-person event but also provide for submission and access to content for those unable to travel to Grand Rapids. Presenters and attendees will be able to access the core science content through the following formats:
Abstracts for symposia and contributed oral/poster sessions can be submitted for either a live, in-person or recorded, virtual presentation. All presenters are required to provide a recorded version of their presentation prior to the meeting. The recorded presentations will be made available to all in-person and virtual attendees, during and after the meeting. We will not be able to accommodate live, remote presentations during the conference. Presentation guidelines and additional instructions will be provided in future correspondence.
