2008 SACNAS National Conference (SACNAS08)
|Event Date/Time: Oct 09, 2008||End Date/Time: Oct 12, 2008|
The 2008 SACNAS National Conference celebrates the organization’s 35th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, SACNAS marks this year’s conference by engaging conference participants from all scientific fields in discourse on a specific science-focused theme.
In 2008, SACNAS’ theme focuses on global change—particularly climate change and its impact on all fields of science and all ecosystems and populations from the poles to the desert Southwest. Timed to correspond with world-wide efforts related the International Polar Year and supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, SACNAS' IPY conference represents an opportunity for the minority scientific community to have a voice in the direction and application of research affecting the health of the planet and her people.
