Mark your calendars for the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Grand Rapids, Michigan, May 14-20, 2022.
The Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting (JASM) will be the world’s largest gathering of aquatic scientists, students, practitioners, resource agency staff, and industry representatives in history. JASM’s parent organization, The Consortium of Aquatic Science Societies (CASS), is comprised of 9 groups representing various interests within the aquatic science realm. The JASM 2022 meeting is designed to bring together deep, multidisciplinary subject-matter expertise to collaboratively educate one another and solve the complex environmental problems facing our society and our planet today.
The meeting will be held at the DeVos Place convention center and it is organized by the Consortium of Aquatic Science Societies (CASS), which includes:
- American Fisheries Society
- Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography
- Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation
- Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society
- International Association for Great Lakes Research
- North American Lake Management Society
- Phycological Society of America
- Society for Freshwater Science
- Society of Wetland Scientists
Call for Abstracts
The JASM Program Committee invites presentation abstracts which support the conference theme:
Rapid Changes 〜 Collaborative Solutions
Collaboration among disciplines is critical to address common problems, whether in wetlands, streams, lakes, or oceans, and to study these problems from an ecosystem perspective. Collaboration is also necessary to conduct translational research that delivers actionable results which support science-based solutions. We encourage presentations that engage scientists, practitioners, and others from across the spectrum of the CASS members and embrace unique perspectives offered by our colleagues both inside and outside the organizations of CASS. We look forward to presentations exploring all aspects of aquatic science.
One important lesson from the pandemic has been the value of providing remote access to scientific meeting content. This has allowed registrants broad access to the science, not just the slim subset of presentations that they might have attended in a pre-pandemic live event. JASM2022 will employ a hybrid meeting model to create an exciting in-person event but also provide for submission and access to content for those unable to travel to Grand Rapids.
