ASLO is now soliciting nominations for its 2017 Awards, to be presented at the ASLO 2017 Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii (26 February – 3 March, 2017).
The deadline for nominations is Friday 14 October, 2016. Decisions are expected during November, and all nominators will be informed of the outcome of their efforts in late 2016.
Awards cover all career stages and activities, providing the opportunity to recognize the outstanding individual and group accomplishments across the aquatic science research community.
Nominations are short, simple to make, and can be submitted electronically via our dedicated online nomination form. We are seeking a diverse slate of nominations, and in particular encourage early and mid-career colleagues to consider leading a nomination.
Any aquatic scientist can be nominated for ASLO awards, with the exception of current ASLO Board and Award Committee members.
Please take the time to nominate your colleagues for these awards! Detailed information on awards and their nomination process can be found at http://aslo.org/information/awards.html.
