The Northeastern Geobiology Symposium is an annual daylong conference organized between the Northeastern Universities to encourage interaction, strengthen existing ties and build new collaborations in the Geobiology community. In particular, this conference is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to meet collaborators as well as for undergraduate students to meet prospective graduate advisors. The topics of interest will broadly revolve around the themes of environmental geomicrobiology and the co-evolution of life and environment through geological time.
The symposium will kick off with an invited speaker on Friday, March 28th at 6:30 pm, and continue on Saturday the 29th of March, 2014 with a light breakfast at 9:20 am followed by talks at 10 am, lunch at noon, more talks and poster sessions throughout the afternoon.
