95th Annual Meeting of the Louisiana Academy of Science.

⚜The Centennial Decade⚜

The 95th Meeting of the Louisiana Academy of Sciences will be held VIRTUALLY on Friday March 12, and Saturday March 13, 2021. This meeting will be hosted by Louisiana Tech University.

Changing to an online format has allowed us to make a few changes and additions to the meeting as outlined below.

This year’s meeting will still have the familiar graduate and undergraduate student posters and oral presentations of their research. Students choosing to will be able to compete for awards within their division. In addition, this year we are allowing students to present research proposals in either the oral or poster format. While the presentation of research proposals will not be eligible for the awards competition, this will give students a chance to receive feedback on their plans. We’d also like to encourage faculty and professional scientists to give overview talks of the research being conducted by their research group. We hope to use this to foster collaboration and community amongst our membership.

Abstracts are due January 29th February 5th with the extended abstracts for competition due February 5th February 12th.

In addition, we will be expanding the meeting to begin Friday evening with some special interest sessions. Be sure to let us know which of these you are interested in on your registration so that we can plan the most suitable timing. The sessions will include:

We may also be kicking of the meeting with a Friday evening key-note speaker. For this meeting all presenters will pre-record their talks in case they experience technical difficulties the day of the meeting, but question/answer periods and presentations the day of the meeting will be live.

Finally, due to the low cost of providing for a virtual meeting we are offering registration for the meeting with membership. The cost of membership is $30 for faculty/regular membership and $10 for students.
