Inviting you to Young Ecologists Talk and Interact (YETI) 2010

The 2010 edition of YETI, a conference organised for, and by student volunteers from institutions in Bangalore and other cities in India is being held from 5th - 7th October at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore.

If you are looking for a opportunity to present your research, or even a research proposal, and a chance to interact informally with your peers and many scientists, YETI 2010 is the place to get to. Plus, there are plenary talks, workshops to improve your skills at ecological research, popular talks by other students and researchers, and many other activities that promise to make YETI really interesting. It would be great if you could present your work and ideas, or simply attend it. Students and faculty members at YETI, who are going to be from all parts of the country will be excited to know about the research work you have completed, or that is on-going, or one you're planning for future work.

The YETI 2010 announcement is attached as a PDF for you to go through. Please feel free to circulate the information among your colleagues, friends and anyone interested. The last date for submitting abstracts for your talks and posters is 15th August. So register at the website, and submit your application (not to panic, the deadline for application submission will most likely be extended by another week or so. Anyway, do hurry up!)
