Subject: Live-Streaming of Goodman Memorial Symposium on Conservation Decision-Making and Policy
The Daniel Goodman Memorial Symposium
Decision-Making Under Uncertainty: Risk Assessment and the Best Available Science
20-21 March 2014
We will be live-streaming the Goodman Memorial Symposium on our website (http://www.montana.edu/lettersandscience/Goodman/).
The purpose of the symposium is to explore ways to improve how scientists and managers use ecological data and analyses to inform policy and decision-making, taking into account the uncertainty inherent in ecological data and predicted outcomes of management actions. Symposium speakers will address the theme in the context of marine mammal and fisheries management, ecosystem modeling, Bayesian statistics, ecological decision-making and population viability analysis, U.S. Endangered Species Act policy, scientific mentoring, and environmental monitoring. See our website for the full schedule of talks with abstracts.
Attendees (both off- and on-site) can use #GoodmanSymposium2014 on Twitter to follow the backchannel conference conversation and post question and comments for the speakers.
Thank you to our generous sponsors for allowing us to provide this live-stream!
We hope you will join us!
