Please join us right before the conference to integrate students, postdocs, and senior scientists in series of lectures, discussions, and hands-on activities designed to foster collaboration among a new generation of shallow lakes researchers.

It’s a great opportunity for:

  • improving your communication skills
  • discussing the secrets to success in science (or not) and how to overcome road blocks
  • establishing a network of young researchers

The overall setting will be relatively informal. The day will begin at the conference venue and might end at the beach or at a bar. The full schedule will be available soon, but we already have most of the activities and participating senior scientists confirmed*.

Don’t miss it!
