Please note this great opportunity to present your research locally.

Fellow Biologists of the Midwest,

After a long torpor, the Midwestern Regional Meeting<http://gozips.uakron.edu/~hastley/midwestSICB.html> for the Society of Integrative & Comparative Biology<http://sicb.org/> is being revived, hosted at the University of Akron on 10/21/17!

For those unfamiliar with these meetings, regional SICB meetings are small, single-day meetings on a weekend to promote networking and collaboration among local faculty.  Speakers give short, ~5 minute "flash talks" on their research (or attend without presenting) and exchange ideas over coffee, snacks, and meals.  These are great meetings for new graduate students and undergrads to gain experience presenting at a conference in a low-pressure, friendly environment.  For this meeting, we will have a closing reception at the Emily Davis Art Gallery featuring artist Matt Kenyon.

Regional SICB meetings are sponsored by the Divisions of Vertebrate Morphology & Comparative Biomechanics, though topics can range substantially beyond those areas, covering most integrative organismal biology and related areas; if in doubt, go ahead and submit it!

I've attached a poster to advertise the meeting, and the meeting website is here<http://gozips.uakron.edu/~hastley/midwestSICB.html> with more details; feel free to email me with any questions.  Please register if you plan to attend (even if not presenting), so we have a headcount for catering.  Registration and attendance is free.

Hope to see you in October!
