10.5 US Symposium on Harmful Algae

Emerging Voices and Blooming Careers
May 25-27, 2021 • Virtual

We are pleased to announce the 10.5 US Symposium on Harmful Algae,

with the conference theme Emerging Voices and Blooming Careers. This meeting will be held virtually from May 25-27, 2021.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the local organizing committee and the US National HAB Committee decided to postpone the 11th US Symposium on Harmful Algae in New York until Fall 2022. In the meantime, we wanted to provide an opportunity for the US HAB research and management communities to meet together and elevate the student, postdoctoral, and early career members of our community, many of whom are most impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic at a crucial time in their careers. The program for this meeting will center around presentations (oral and poster sessions) from student, postdoctoral, and early career (within 3 years of terminal degree) community members.

This virtual meeting will not replace our in person meeting, but will provide an opportunity for our community to gather together during these strange times! We still look forward to gathering together in person in New York in 2022!

Please save the date!
