The 2013 Ottawa-Carleton Northern Research Symposium (OCSNRS) is taking place at Carleton University, in the Senate Room (608 Robertson Hall), from 8:30am – 4:30pm on Friday, March 8th.
All faculty and students who are conducting northern research at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa are invited to attend this annual student-run conference. While those engaged in northern research are given preference, additional seating may available for those with a general interest in northern research if space permits.
Award winning photographer Michelle Valberg (http://www.michellevalberg.com/) will be delivering the keynote address, followed by presentations from students in wide-ranging disciplines including anthropology, biology, earth science, geography, and public policy. Awards for the best oral presentation and best poster will be presented at the end of the day.
Breakfast snacks, hot and cold beverages, a light lunch, and afternoon snacks will be served.
There is no charge for the OCSNRS, but space is limited so an RSVP is required. Please advise Marcus Phillips (MarcusPhillips@cmail.carleton.ca) before noon on Tuesday, March 5th if you wish to attend.

The committee would also like to thank Dr. Gita Ljubicic for her help facilitating the organization of the symposium, and Michelle Valberg for delivering the keynote address.
