2nd Annual
Dalhousie University
Environmental Research Symposium
**2004 Senate Environmental Award Recipients**

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005 2:00-7:00pm

Link, Sir Charles Tupper Building 5859 University Avenue

The Environmental Research Symposium is dedicated to bring together undergraduate, graduate and faculty from across campus in order to share existing research relating to the environment, as well as to facilitate new collaborations for further research initiatives.

The symposium gives researchers a chance to present recent research relating to the environment, and gives students, faculty and the general public the opportunity to learn about existing research and get involved in future projects. The symposium strives to bring together students and faculty from across campus in order to bridge the gap between the many disciplines that relate to studies of the environment.

This process began with the meeting of DEEP-R (Dalhousie Environmental Educators, Practitioners and Researchers) in April 2004, and we hope to continue with similar events at Dalhousie in the future.

All members of Dalhousie and the general public are invited to attend the event. We are calling for poster submissions from undergraduate, graduate and faculty across campus. The poster session part of the event will give researchers at Dalhousie the opportunity share research efforts with fellow faculty, students and the general public. Participants are encouraged to reuse existing research posters. Please see Poster Guidelines for more information. All titles must be submitted to envs@dal.ca by Nov. 4th, 2005.
