The Young Environmental Scholars (YES) Conference brings together researchers from across Stanford, providing them with an opportunity to engage around interdisciplinary themes related to environmental science, policy-making, and behavioral studies. Master’s and early-stage doctoral students benefit from exposure to different aspects of environmentally-related research, while later-stage doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars can explore new interdisciplinary approaches to their research problems and discover ways to initiate productive collaborations. The conference also offers interested participants the chance to present peer-to-peer research through both oral and poster sessions.

The YES Conference is scheduled for: Tuesday, November 13, 2018

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Call for oral presentations is closed, but contact the organizers if you wish to participate in the poster session.
