The YES Conference, sponsored by Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, is for the students by the students. The primary goal is to bring together young researchers (graduate students and post-docs) who are interested in environmentally-driven interdisciplinary work. We hope to provide a platform for our attendees to forge collaborations, build their network, and think outside the box. The conference consists of lunch, a keynote speech, research presentations, poster sessions, and a happy hour.
The YES Conference is scheduled for: Tuesday, November 12, 2019
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Call will open in early fall quarter.
ATTENDEES: You are not required to submit an abstract to register. Registration also opens in the fall.
More information about YES 2019 will follow.
