This year's meeting and symposium in were a huge success! In case you missed it, here's a quick recap.
Summary of talks
The meeting was tweeted using the hashtag #ESBCAGM2015 and the photography workshop with #ESBCphotoWS, which provide a great summary of the last two days. Thank you to Mike Hrabar for running our workshop, and to Joyce Leung for organizing. Special thanks to Lorraine Maclauchlan for handling all of the local preparations here in Kamloops, BC.
We had great student turnout, and some truly wonderful student talks. Winners of the Student Oral Presentation Awards were Dan Peach and Heather Coatsworth.
The Graduate Student Scholarship Competition prize was presented to Paul MacDonald.
Congratulations to all our student winners!
Minutes from the business meeting will be posted as soon as they are available.
