The overarching theme of the Conference is “Science Serving the Sound”

We are looking for an array of oral presentations and posters across disciplines in physical, natural, and social sciences that contribute to the four themes of LISS’ Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (https://longislandsoundstudy.net/2015/09/2015-comprehensive-conservation-and-management-plan/):

— Clean waters and healthy watersheds

— Thriving habitats and abundant wildlife

— Sustainable and resilient communities

— Sound science and inclusive management

Abstracts will be reviewed for appropriateness and rigor. Due to limited space, we may not be able to accommodate all submissions. If you wish to submit more than one abstract, please submit each one separately. Students are encouraged to submit.
