The Fourth International Cassiopea Workshop will be held online across four sessions, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (USA).

Registration is FREE and will remain open until May 17th. Abstract submission for full talks will be open until March 19th.

This year, the workshop will be held virtually, but similar to previous workshops, our goal is to grow our community, generate collaborations, and encourage sharing of knowledge and ideas. In order to offer an experience beyond Zoom presentations, we are planning virtual ‘mini-workshops’ centered around tutorials on topics such anatomical identification of Cassiopea, spawning/husbandry, embryo injections, computational fluid dynamics, etc. We will also organize a virtual space for attendees to converse with others, participate in trivia, and make new colleagues. This meeting is for those working on Cassiopea and those interested in working in Cassiopea! Past attendees have diverse research backgrounds and questions but we all come away with much to gain.

In addition to participating virtually, the Key Largo Marine Research Lab (KLMRL) will be available to host attendees (with proof of vaccinations). More workshop details will be available here over the coming weeks, including ‘mini-workshop’ schedules and presentation abstracts.

To provide some details, below are the components that will be on offer:

  • 2-3 Plenary Talks
  • Presentations will be 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions
  • Recorded Talks
  • Virtual ‘mini-workshops’
  • Trivia (with prizes!)
  • Graduate Student Presentation Award

Instruction for Presenters

Presentation will be 10 mins, with 5 minutes allotted for questions and transitions. Presentations will take plus on Zoom.

Presentations will be recorded (with permissions), and will be available for viewers after the sessions. Presentations will be available for viewers through a secure link, provided to registrants of the workshop.


Gather.town

In addition to Zoom, the virtual workshop will use gather.town to facilitate interactions and conversations. Attendees can enter our gather.town space during breaks and during socials to interaction with attendees and gain access to additional content.
