2014 Mid-Atlantic Malacologists (MAM) Meeting
Saturday, March 29, 2014
Please join us on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at the Delaware Museum of Natural History in Wilmington, DE for the 16th Mid-Atlantic Malacologists meeting. This informal, one-day event is designed to facilitate contact among professional, amateur, and student biologists who study mollusks. All topics and taxa are welcome!
Doors open at 9 a.m. for coffee and a light breakfast. Talks start around 9:30 a.m. and go until 4:30 p.m. with a break for lunch. Presentations (15 minutes max.) are very informal and cover topics as diverse as current research, trip reports, and collection issues. There are no dues, officers, abstracts, or publications associated with the meeting. We spend the day getting caught up on current research, networking with new colleagues, and laughing with friends.
The Museum’s collection and library are available for use before or during the meeting. Interested participants should make arrangements with Nasreen Aziz, Mollusk Collection Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) so specimens or books can be pulled in advance.
An array of AV equipment is available (projector & laptop for PowerPoint, 35 mm slide projector & an overhead projector). There is also limited wall space for posters and table space for reprints and announcements. Please feel free to bring show and tell items – new books, old reprints, announcements, etc.
Planning your visit:
The Museum is located on Rte. 52 (Kennett Pike), due north of Wilmington, DE and across the street from Winterthur. There is plenty of free parking on-site, but unfortunately the Museum is not easily accessible via public transportation.
If you need hotel accommodations, contact Liz Shea to discuss options in the area. In the past, we have been able to secure a room or two at Winterthur’s visiting scholar’s residence.
For additional information or to confirm you will attend or give a talk, please contact Liz Shea at email@example.com or (302) 658 -9111, ext 319.
