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.
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!
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.
