None Yes (The AAG is pleased to announce that it is continuing full-time, professionally managed and staffed onsite childcare services for the 2020 Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. The onsite childcare services will be provided by Accent on Children’s Arrangements, Inc. (ACCENT) www.accentoca.com, which will design and run a children’s program called CAMP AAG. CAMP AAG will offer age-appropriate activities for children ranging from 6 months to 17 years of age (separated into age-appropriate groups) including curriculum-enriched, hands-on, creative activities, arts & crafts projects, active games, and more. CAMP AAG is also open to children with disabilities. ACCENT will staff CAMP AAG with teacher professional child care providers who have completed ACCENT’s specialized training program. In addition, ACCENT’s onsite supervisors are CPR and Pediatric First Aid certified. The AAG will cover the overall costs to hire ACCENT to establish and staff the onsite childcare facility, and will also subsidize their hourly childcare rates. ACCENTs standard hourly rate for childcare is $12 for children ages 6 months to 3 years and $10 for children ages 3 to 17 years. In addition to paying for all of the facility and staffing costs, the AAG will again subsidize the hourly rates by 50percent in this sixth year.) Yes Yes (1.

None Yes (1.Mentoring the Mentor: A Mentor-Training Workshop(Description: There is ample evidence that mentoring plays an important role in achieving a satisfying and successful career in academia. While most in academia find themselves in the role of mentor at some point in their career, few have had formal training in best practices for mentoring, particularly in the context of mentoring women and underrepresented minorities.) 2. Non-academic Careers in Physical Anthropology (Description: There are many career paths within Physical Anthropology that lie outside, or partially outside, of academia. However, these careers are frequently under-represented at annual meetings due to the academic nature of these conferences. Still, greater representation of non-academic careers within physical anthropology helps to diversify the field and helps to build these professions by attracting talented early career professionals that frequent annual meetings.) 3. Creating An Ad Hoc Early Career Committee (Bioanthropologists who have recently completed their PhDs struggle to find continuing mentorship, understand and navigate the job market and tenure process, develop independent research programs, and learn to mentor students. As our fastest growing group of members students transitioning into early career status, the importance of addressing the needs of this group will only grow. This session will address the utility and structure of an ad hoc Early Career Committee (ECC) to represent the needs of this growing group. The discussion will be led by a mix of previous Early Career and Student Liaisons, all of whom are pre-tenure anthropologists within 10 years of their PhD.) 4. Navigating the Intercultural Landscape of Gender-Based Harassment and Assault in Fieldwork (Clancy and colleagues (2014) demonstrated that scientific fieldwork often exposes researchers to gender-based harassment and sexual assault with women trainees more frequently targeted. Our subsequent disciplinary conversation about mitigating harassment and assault in fieldwork has focused largely on supervisor-trainee relationships grounded in shared professional training and cultural expectations. This has left a gap in addressing gender-based harassment and sexual harassment issues between researchers and local collaborators or employees. These can be challenging and complex due to cultural differences in expectations for interpersonal relationships and in local laws and norms around harassment and assault. Women and LGBT researchers conducting independent research or establishing research sites in socially conservative places can find themselves vulnerable to gender-based harassment and assault from local collaborators and employees or may find themselves responsible for local employees who are accused of, or victims of, harassment or assault. Additionally, researchers in the field lack protections and guidance we expect from home institutions and law enforcement. This panel discussion and roundtable will bring together researchers at different career levels who have worked independently in the field to discuss their experience establishing and managing collaborative relationships with local researchers, employees, and communities. Panelists will discuss their strategies in preventing, managing, or handling gender-based harassment and assault within complex intercultural contexts. Policies emphasizing safety and inclusion, and establishing protocols and mechanisms for reporting and responding to harassment and assault within a field site, can improve the safety of trainees and early-career researchers (Clancy et al., 2014; Nelson et al., 2017). The goal of this panel is both to provide an opportunity and safe space to discuss personal experiences to begin the process of developing guidelines and best practices for field researchers as they work to establish field sites where researchers and local partners are not vulnerable to harassment or assault.) 5.Choosing, Evaluating, and Using Online Resources in Your Classes (Description: Online resources for teaching anthropology are accessible, helpful, and mostly free. But these resources also vary in value, and it can be a challenge to incorporate them into your curriculum. Participants are asked to bring their laptops and information about sources that have worked (or not) in their classrooms. We will also discuss teaching students how to evaluate online resources.) 6. Citing Marginalized Scholars in Biological Anthropology(Description: Who we cite has consequences. Citational practices, including whose ideas we teach and work with, influence what becomes the core sensibilities that shape knowledge production in our field. Importantly, the subset of work that we conventionally cite does not match the diversity of ideas that exist in biological anthropology. Not all scholars are cited equally, and this is shaped by race, class, sex, and gender inequalities. The work of scholars like Earnest Hooton and Carleton Coon have frequently been amplified, while the work of scholars like W. Montague Cobb has often historically been obscured. This form of silencing perpetuates the marginalization of historically underrepresented scholars in biological anthropology, making it difficult for an increasingly diverse generation of researchers to identify with this field. Shifting citational practices is therefore a crucial site of intervention.) 7.Career Development Panel: How to Write a Grant Proposal (Description: Panelists Rebecca Ferrell (Program Director, Biological Anthropology, National Science Foundation), Paddy Moore (Grant and Program Officer, Leakey Foundation), Danilyn Rutherford (President, Wenner-Gren Foundation) and Miguel Vilar (Senior Program Officer, National Geographic Society) will describe funding programs available to early career researchers. In addition to offering practical advice on how to write a competitive grant proposal for their programs, the panelists will be available to answer questions from the audience) 8.Understanding the NSF Broader Impacts Criterion and Developing the Societal Impact of Your Science(Description: The NSF Broader Impacts merit review criterion requires applicants to propose/present ways in which their research will benefit society, beyond the advancement of knowledge and theory in particular research areas. These broader impacts may be accomplished through the research itself, through activities directly related to specific research projects, or through activities that are supported by, but complementary to, a project. Student and faculty applicants to NSF programs, including Biological Anthropology, routinely have questions about what activities “count” as broader impacts, what NSF panels and program officers currently expect in terms of broader impacts plans for various types of proposals, and how to develop and present effective plans. These applicants may or may not be thinking more broadly about identifying/integrating societal impacts into their research design, outside of the requirements of a particular funding agency. The two-hour session will include: specific information about NSF Broader Impacts in the context of the NSF merit review system (20-30 minute presentation: Ferrell), shared experiences of 4-6 NSF student and faculty grantees (and 1+ non-grantees) with a variety of broader impacts activities (panelists will represent a number of sub-fields, and cover a variety of activities, potentially including science communication, museum outreach, K-12 activities and science education, community outreach/involvement and citizen science, undergraduate and graduate training, public health impacts, conservation impacts, etc.), and time for questions from the audience, and, potentially (depending on room set-up) break-out groups for attendees to discuss further with individual panelists and NSF staff. Opportunity for attendees to provide feedback and input on questions, challenges, and needs related to implementation of broader impacts in their research.) 9. Mentoring for teaching-focused careers(Description: Increasing numbers of anthropologists are embracing jobs at teaching-focused colleges and universities both inside and outside of anthropology departments. As, by definition, PhD programs exist at research-focused universities, graduate students may have a difficult time finding mentors to help them prepare application materials geared towards teaching-focused institutions. In this workshop, registrants will be paired with AAPA members currently employed at community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and teaching-focused universities. Before the meeting, registrants will supply drafts of their cover letter and teaching philosophy to their mentor. During this workshop, mentors and mentees will meet in person to review these application materials and discuss the teaching-focused job market. The goal of this workshop is to assist job-seeking AAPA members in strengthening their applications for teaching-focused jobs, and to provide support and networking opportunities for members interested in pursuing teaching-focused careers. This workshop is organized by the Anthropologists outside of Anthropology Departments, Contingent and Teaching Focused faculty subgroup of the Committee on Diversity.) Yes (Cobb Professional Development Grants: The American Association of Physical Anthropologists recognizes that the professional development of talented scientists in the early stages of their careers is critical to the continued health and vitality of the discipline. Applicants must be junior faculty members (such as postdoctoral scholars, lecturers, or Assistant Professors) and must be non-tenured at the time of application and award. Individuals in non-traditional positions equivalent to these junior faculty positions are also encouraged to apply. Membership in the AAPA is NOT a requirement. An applicant may receive only one Professional Development Grant during their career.The budget should not exceed $7,500) Also Student Presentation Awards: The American Association of Physical Anthropologists awards prizes to outstanding presentations at the annual meeting whose first author is a student member. The AAPA has long recognized the important contributions made to our discipline by students. For decades, specific named awards were conferred for outstanding podium and poster presentations. A list of these awards and awardees can be found below. As our annual meeting has grown and the distinctions between podium and poster presentations are blurred, the AAPA Executive Committee has elected to bestow each AAPA-supported award (usually between 4-6) as an American Association of Physical Anthropologists Award for Outstanding Student Presentation. Similarly, the AAPA will also confer the American Association of Physical Anthropologists Honorable Mention for Student Presentation. Endowed awards, awards supported by journals and publishers, along with awards co-sponsored with other organizations will remain unchanged in name. Awards: For an excellent poster or podium presentation on bones or teeth The Mildred Trotter Prize For an excellent poster or podium presentation on primatology The Patricia Whitten Prize For an excellent poster or podium presentation on human or primate evolution The Journal of Human Evolution Prize For excellent poster and podium presentations that are judged to best implement either traditional or state-of-the-art anatomical methodologies in innovative anthropological research (subject to co-funding by the Association of Anatomists). The AAA-AAPA Anatomy in Anthropology poster and podium prizes There are many more excellent student poster and podium presentations than we have named awards. As the result a number of Honorable Mention Prizes are awarded each year. The Honorable Mention Prizes Eligibility: To be eligible for a prize, a paper or poster must meet the following criteria: The first author must be a student member (or special member who is a student) of the AAPA at the time of abstract submission who has not previously won a prize for an AAPA presentation. Individuals who have completed all terminal degree requirements before the abstract submission deadline are ineligible for a student prize. However, the first author may be a Regular Member at the time of presentation. The first author must be a member of the AAPA at the time the meeting is held (Student or Special). The paper and the project to be presented must be primarily the work of the first author The abstract must have been accepted for either a podium or poster presentation of the main AAPA meeting (exclusive of the COD Undergraduate Research Symposium). The first author student must personally make the presentation of the paper or poster. The value of the each award is $500.) Yes (William S. Pollitzer Student Travel Award (Qualifications: This award is open to all AAPA student members (undergraduate and graduate) who are attending the annual meeting. You DO NOT have to be giving a paper to compete or receive an award. You DO need to be a MEMBER of the AAPA at the time of the meeting, and you need to have not been granted your PhD before the submission deadline. Students from underrepresented groups in biological anthropology, those who are the first in their family to go to college, or are undergraduate students at two-year and four-year colleges (without graduate programs) are strongly encouraged to apply. Award: Up to $500 to defray travel costs to the meetings. Application and Essay: The essay question changes each year. Awards are made on the basis of an essay of no more than 750 words long (excluding references). Any submission over 750 words will be automatically disqualified. References are not counted towards the 750 words and should be included in the same text box with the essay. In 2019, the AAPA formally adopted a new position statement on race and racism (https://physanth.org/about/position-statements/aapa-statement-race-and-racism-2019/). The Association is uniquely positioned to offer such a statement, given the historical roles that biological anthropologists have played in the creation and perpetuation of racialized systems of oppression and discrimination. In our professional contexts, biological anthropologists have opportunities to address "race," educate students, and inform publics about the science of human biological variation. In an essay of 750 words or less, describe how you may approach such opportunities in the classroom or in other professional arenas, and how they can best be used to communicate an honest and accurate message concerning the science of race and racism. Essay evaluation and scoring procedures: The AAPA student prize committee will evaluate each submission with an identification number (assigned by the committee chair) to mask authors’ identities. Applicants who have won a Pollitzer travel award previously are eligible to enter the competition again, but students who have never won before will be given priority.) https://physanth.org/about/committees/ethics/ Yes very brief sort of mixed with a Safety sheet (https://physanth.org/annual-meetings/past-meetings/88th-annual-meeting-2019/safety-contact-information-2019-cleveland-meetings/) None Not Applicable to this meeting.

Social reception following the Early Professionals Mini-Talk Symposium, which will provide a chance to meet with the participants and other early career and mid/senior ornithologists:We invite you to submit an abstract for consideration as a presentation during the 7th Annual Early Professionals Mini-Talk Symposium that will be part of the North American Ornithological Conference (NAOC) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from 10–15 August. The Early Professionals Mini-Talk Symposium is designed to highlight the exciting research and professional activities performed by ornithologists in the early stages of their careers (i.e. have defended their PhD in the past 7 years, pursuing/initiating a research career, in the first five years of an agency/private sector position, etc). During this lively and fast-paced event, participants will have 4 minutes and 30 seconds to showcase their recent professional advances, the techniques they employ, the future directions their career will take, and their broader identity as ornithologists. At the conclusion of the talks, the participants will sit as a panel to take questions from the audience on their visions of where ornithology is headed, and how they see themselves contributing. The organizers will prepare some questions ahead of time, but will also take questions from the audience. This event will be live tweeted, therefore participants will be asked to submit a tweet (280 characters) summarizing their research program prior to the symposium. Please note that participation in this symposium does NOT preclude you from also submitting an abstract for the normal program; you may participate in both. Following the talks there will be an Early Professional Social, a chance to meet with the participants and other early career and senior ornithologists. To give all attendees the opportunity to learn about these early career researchers, the symposium is a stand-alone event. Goal of the Symposium: The goal is to introduce yourself to the audience, which will contain ornithologists both inside and outside of your field, and get them excited about your career trajectory. You are encouraged to be broad and present the big picture. This forum is meant for you to showcase you as a scientist and what your contributions are to the field (both present and future), and NOT the specific details of your most recent paper. Your abstract should be a professional summary and provide the overarching question guiding your research, main research themes, and the tools you use to address your research questions or other professional goals, examples of projects you have worked on, and a discussion of your future directions. There are many ways to approach this abstract and presentation—make it your own. The goal is to communicate who you are as a scientist. How you achieve that goal is up to you.)

A handful of students who apply for a travel award will receive an Ungerleider/Zimbardo Travel Scholarship from the American Psychological Foundation. Applicants must have psychology as the primary focus of their graduate studies (even if they are receiving training in other fields as well). They should be enrolled full time and in good standing in their graduate programs. Applicants may be citizens or residents of any country and their institutions may be located and accredited/recognized in any country. Applicants must be student affiliates or associate members of APA (graduate student affiliates are automatically members of APAGS — see student affiliate application for details). Students who are not affiliates must apply for affiliation when submitting materials for the travel award; however, all materials must be received by the Science Directorate in a single, complete package. Research papers or posters must already have been accepted by an APA division for presentation. Students must be first author on the accepted research paper or poster. Multiple author submissions are acceptable, but the student applicant must be the designated presenter of the research. If there are multiple student authors, only the first author may apply for these funds. If the student applicant has been accepted to present more than one paper or poster, she or he must choose only one paper/poster presentation to use when applying for this award. Students who are designated presenters in a division-sponsored symposium are also eligible to apply for this award. Each psychology department (i.e., not individual programs within a department) may endorse no more than three students per year for the travel award. If more than three students from a department wish to apply for these funds, the department must perform an initial screening and forward only three applications. In addition to being eligible to apply for a travel award, students who are both members of APAGS and first authors are also eligible to have their convention registration fees waived. Further information about this potential fee waiver will be emailed to eligible students by early June.)

Undergraduates who submitted poster abstracts should put their posters in the main poster hall upon arriving at the conference. 3.PUI Faculty Development Workshop This workshop is for faculty currently working at primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) or early career scientists who would like to get a job at a PUI. PUIs are defined as institutions that offer few or no PhDs in the sciences. While teaching is a large part of being a PUI faculty member, maintaining a successful research program is also critical for career advancement and for providing undergraduates with high-caliber research experiences. Given the high demand on faculty time at PUIs, research collaborations are an integral part of maintaining a productive research program. This workshop will include presentations and discussions on different types of collaborative projects and tools PUI faculty can used to build successful collaborations. This will include presentations by a panel of faculty on different types of collaborative projects as well as opportunities for small-group tool building among participants. 4.Discovering the rules of life through computational plant biology – utilizing dynamical mathematical models at the molecular, organismal, and ecosystem levels At the workshop, participants will be put into groups and provided with ‘toy problems’ to solve. They will be tasked with reformulating of these problems to be more appropriate for discussion of mathematical frameworks, including differential equations, Markov Chains, and cellular automata. Participant groups will decide which of the presented methods would be best suited for their toy problems. The ‘solutions’ will be presented by our panel of experts, who will discuss their rationales with the participants. At the end of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to receive real-time consultation on their computational questions. Participants can display an A4-sized poster with a diagram of their system with a brief paragraph giving background information and research questions. The panel of experts will then give comments where appropriate on suggested next steps. 5.Change the World with SciComm! Public policies can have far-reaching impacts on scientific research, and vice-versa. Policymakers, regulators, and the public need information about issues that relate to plant biology. Through invited speakers and hands-on activities, this workshop will help participants impact policy with the following strategies: 1. Communicate about science directly to lawmakers and other policymakers. 2. Contribute public comments on new or updated regulations that impact your research. 3. Communicate the impacts of science policies with the public through storytelling. Our goal is to inspire participants to reach out and change the world through science communication! 6.Perspectives in Science Leadership and Policy with Dr. Sharlene Weatherwax Are you a science leader? Should science policy matter to you? How can scientists at all levels of experience and interest in plant science contribute towards leadership and science policy? A successful and vibrant research enterprise depends on diversity, equity, inclusion, and perspectives from different contexts. Dr. Sharlene Weatherwax will present observations and lessons learned from a nonlinear path to a nontraditional career in science management and policy, highlighting some expected and unanticipated potholes and roadblocks. You will receive some practical tips to nurture and develop your inner leader, identify your policy interests and empower future actions. 7.Get Your Message Across: A Guide to Artwork and Illustrations for Better Impact and Clarity This workshop will cover the production of artwork and illustrations that effectively convey information and complex concepts. The workshop will consist of short presentations on principles of good design, using R/Python to generate complex data figures and software and other resources that can be used to produce effective figures. Pointers on fonts, colors, density of data, and design of graphs for publication will also be presented. The presentations will be followed by a question & answer period. 8.Plant Science Decadal Vision (2020-2030) Making the vision a reality Our planet and species are facing an interrelated set of profound challenges with limited time and diminishing opportunity to solve. To address these challenges, ASPB and the plant science community have come together to develop an innovative Plant Science Decadal Vision (DV). The goals of the Decadal Vision span People, Research, and Technology – but addressing these goals will require unprecedented collaborations within and outside the plant and microbial sciences, new technologies, new training paradigms, new work cultures, and the broadening of participation.Organized by the Plant Science Research Network (PSRN), this workshop will highlight opportunities to get involved in the effort to advance our community towards these ambitious and challenging goals. The organizers will provide an overview of the report and facilitate an interactive discussion on how ASPB members can work to promote the vision. Contact: Natalie 9.Allies 101: How to support and affirm the LGBTQ+ community in lab and the classroom LGBTQ+ students have reduced retention rates in STEM compared to their heterosexual peers. 30percent of STEM professionals are not ‘out’ to their colleagues. Welcoming workplaces increase the likely of professionals to be out to their collogues, while student LGBTQ+ supportive organizations decrease the odds of students encountering homophobic comments. In our workshop we will talk about ways to improve the lab and classroom environment for LGBTQ+ students and professionals for Allies. We will focus on easily changeable aspects of the classroom and lab culture to improve accessibility and support for LGBTQ+ folks. Other topics we will discuss include LGBTQ+ Vocabulary 101, how to find local LGBTQ+ resources and ways to bring them up for folks in need, and also discuss how to be a good ally for folks who are transitioning and coming out. This will be an interactive workshop, aimed to educated professionals and to also help them identify resources in their local communities. What are pronouns and how do you know when to use which ones? Someone just came out to me, what do I do? Does my school/company have resources for LGBTQ+ folks? Mental health resources for LGBT+ folks in my community? 10.How FDA can help you bring new plant varieties to market This session will explain how you can use FDA’s voluntary food safety consultation processes as part of new variety development. Discussion will include the types of data and information that are typically considered as part of a consultation. Emphasis will be placed on how these processes may be used by small and medium-sized entities (including universities). This session will also discuss FDA’s view of foods from genome edited plant varieties. 11.Implicit Bias & Conscious Inclusion Workshop (breakfast) organized by the Minority Affairs and the Women in Plant Biology Committees We are all guilty of being implicitly bias, and acknowledging this is not always easy, especially when we are not equipped to address this and do not always know what to do. Join us for an in-depth understanding of what unconscious bias is, how it effects our decisions and the harm that can result from it. In this interactive workshop, we will learn to identify the ways that bias shows up in our own lives, different strategies to limit its effects in our decision making, and finally how to be more conscious about inclusion. 12.Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: Effecting Institutional Change (Lunch with Guest Speaker) Organized by the Minority Affairs Committee – more details coming soon 13.Inclusive Pedagogy As educators, we want all of our students to feel valued and supported. This workshop features several speakers who will present their perspectives on intentionally inclusive pedagogy. From sample assignments to attitudes to course policies, participants will learn about the many ways that they can make their classrooms and curricula more inclusive. Workshop participants will then work in small groups with the speakers to brainstorm and develop their own sets of materials, tips, and tricks that can be brought back into the classroom. The workshop is open to current and future educators at all student levels. Communicating for Impact: Workshop on engaging meaningfully with your neighbors, your elected officials, funders and the broader public about plant science This workshop, led by James Carrington, President of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, provides guidance and real-world examples of how to meaningfully engage with the public—ranging from your local community to policy makers. Communicating the promise of plant science is the foundation from which public demand and funding (both government and philanthropic) for plant science will grow. Workshop participants will hear from experienced communicators about their successes and failures and how to: • Communicate with the Public with Purpose • Communicate with Elected Officials and Policy Makers • Communicate with Government Agencies and Philanthropies 14.Careers beyond academia: DC edition Graduate training of plant biologists occurs primarily in universities, and students have little exposure to plant biology careers apart from the academic path. This workshop will provide discussion of a diversity of career options available to those with graduate degrees in plant biology. Panelists will be selected to represent a variety of careers including in those in large and small private companies, government, etc. The workshop format will include introduction of career options by the panelists followed by small group discussions. 15.Bridging the gap between lab and field: designing and using fabricated ecosystems to explore plant-soil-microbial interactions. 16.Market driven innovation in plant science 17.USDA, DOE & NSF Grant Information Session) Yes (1.

This workshop will identify common pitfalls and good practices for interdisciplinary research in ecology, from developing a funding proposal to project implementation and publication. 7. How to run the best fieldcourse to develop key graduate skills. The aim of this interactive, peer-peer workshop is to provide an informal but guided forum for experienced field educators to consider ways to enhance their teaching practice. We will focus on the attributes that employers require in ecology graduates and share best field-based teaching practice for developing key graduate skills. 8. Indigenous Knowledge: what is it, where do I find it, how can I use it? Incorporating Indigenous Knowledge in ecological research is an ethical commitment and a practical consideration in negotiating access. More than this, it is an essential component of robust and effective ecology, informing successful research design. This workshop uses practical examples to demonstrate anthropological methods useful in engaging with indigenous knowledge. 9.Getting social for science communication. Terrified by Twitter? Flummoxed by Facebook? Or seeking an extra push for your science via social? We’ll introduce different social media platforms and tips and tricks for getting the most from them. Participants will have the chance to build and enhance their social media profile, learn about communicating their science, and create some games. You’ll leave equipped with tools to communicate your science effectively on social media! 10. OURsoils: developing citizen science and public engagement.

This year at ESA we are hosting our first ever Queer mixer: Queer people in science face particular challenges, whether that be working in locations that are unsafe and intolerant of LGBT+ individuals, or being in a work environment that is dominated by cis- and heteronormativity. There is increasing awareness of the underrepresentation of minorities in the sciences. Recognising this inequality is the first step to meeting the challenge of enhancing diversity and inclusivity in science. A 2013 survey (Yoder and Mattheis 2016) of people in STEM fields found that 40percent of LGBTQ+ identified respondents are not out to their colleagues. This is not the culture we strive for in ecology, and not within ESA. Enhancing the visibility of LGBTQ+ people (umbrella term for non-heterosexual or cisgender individuals: Queer) in ecology is important to enhancing the inclusive and diverse culture of the scientific field in Australia. ESA is in the position to influence the broader community of ecologists and ecology-related fields in Australia. Modelling off of the success of the British Ecological Society (BES) LGBT+ network and mixers (https://www.britishecologicalsociety.org/membership-community/diversity/) , we will host a Queer mixer at ESA19 in Launceston. 2. Equity or Diversity Concerns? – You’ve got an Ally! We are striving to improve Equity and Diversity within ESA (and elsewhere) via our Equity and Diversity Policy and the addition of the Conference Code of Conduct. On a more personal level though, we want to provide a safe space for our members and conference attendees to raise issues outside of formal pathways, because often, the best time to say something is now! ESA has nominated a team of Equity and Diversity Allies at the 2019 conference to provide support for members who may have an equity and/or diversity issue, and to provide an avenue to lodge feedback or a complaint. If you would like to talk to someone please seek out one of the people listed below (look for the rainbow lanyard!). If you can’t find them, just ask at the ESA booth and we will help link you up. We can guarantee that any conversations will be handled with understanding and confidentiality.Interested in joining or contributing to the Equity & Diversity Working Group? Contact Gail at the ESA Booth.) Yes (The ESA encourages student attendance at its annual conference by providing a number of student travel grants each year. Every student who applies for the grant and meets the criteria (until the allocation is exhausted) will receive some level of funding depending on the geographic location of their home campus (funding amounts shown below). The grants will be awarded in the order they were received once abstract confirmations have been sent out, you are welcome to apply beforehand, but will not be awarded a grant if your abstract is not accepted. ​The amount of the grant received will be based on relative travel costs of all applicants, and are generally determined on the basis of relative costs of air travel. In addition to the usual travel grants, up to five extra travel grants (Wiley Student Fellowships) will be sponsored by Wiley Publishing. These fellowships will be awarded to individuals from the pool of applicants who have the highest travel costs. To be eligible for a student travel grant, applicants must be a member of the Society, be the presenting author of a talk or poster, and not have previously won a travel grant from the Society.)

However, use of common sense is (always) required, as in any large city. Experience has shown that some basic precautionary measures should always be kept in mind in any city: – Do not carry important items like flight tickets, passports etc. with you when visiting the conference or strolling through the city, leave them in the hotel safe during your stay. Rather carry a Xerox copy of your passport or an identity card with you. – Try not to carry all documents, money, credit cards and other essential items and valuables in one bag or purse. If it is lost or stolen, everything will be gone and might be difficult to replace on short notice, especially passports and visa to return to your country of residence. – Take off your name badge when leaving the conference centre. – In heavily frequented tourist zones and the metro at rush hour, be aware of attemps of scam and pickpocketing. – Do not respond to anybody unknown to you who comes up to you on the street engaging you in a conversation, no matter how safe they appear to be.

Junior Principal Investigator Sessions: A.How to outline an individualized career development plan to become a successful PI(This session will cover the concept of having an active role on your own career development and empowering trainees to have a strategy when picking mentors and pursuing training. This encompasses making very conscious decisions about what your niche or "brand" will be when looking for jobs (academic or not). Having an "IDP" is a requirement for all NIH grants on the "training" phases and it is also being requested by private foundations.) B.Climbing the grant ladder: The importance of establishing a record of funding early in your career(Grantsmanship has a (steep) learning curve and the earlier you start to climb the better you will be by the time you really need to get funded. Starting a position with funding makes you extremely attractive in a job search, and it used to be exceptional but it is slowly becoming the norm. This session will go through the typical grant ladders available in the US and in Europe and provide tips on how to climb and how to help your trainees begin their journey.) C.Strategies to generate data: wet-lab, collaborations and consortia(As a computational person, having your own wetlab can be extremely beneficial providing you with experimental control and access to additional funding. However, is it wise to venture outside your area of expertise? Or is it better to rely on collaborations? How do you go about supervising PhDs in the wetlab if you have no experience yourself?) Consortium projects can help you do bigger and better science. However, getting the most out of participation in a consortium and coming out on top can be difficult. D.How to get involved in the ISCB as a PI(The ISCB has expressed a desire to further engage senior postdocs and principal investigators in the society. In this session we will find out ways in which participants can become more active within the society.) (How do you hire the best staff? How do you get tenure? What if you don’t get tenure? How do you manage a budget? How much admin should I do? How much should you travel? How do you motivate lab members? These questions and many more will be discussed amongst participants and each will share their secrets on what has worked best. This will be achieved through structured round table conversations amongst participants with the speakers.)

Food and drink Food and snacks will not be provided as part of the childcare services. Parents/guardians can provide necessary food. The nannies will give the child only food and snacks provided by the parent/guardian. A water dispenser will be available in the childcare area. If parents/guardians want to bring any other drink, they can provide the drink and the nannies will give it to the child. Health Insurance Parents/guardians are required to have their own medical insurance which fully covers their child, including any medical or hospitalization expenses, repatriation in case of medical emergency, accident causing permanent disability or death. Liability Insurance The parents/guardians will be responsible for any damage caused by their children at all times. The parents/guardians’ liability insurance shall include the coverage for all damages to personal belongings by their child’s own carelessness or negligence (for example, a child stumbles and shatters his or another child’s spectacles, or a child damages her own or another child’s clothes), loss of personal belongings and theft of belongings. Liability Except gross negligence or willful misconduct, the International AIDS Society and Tante Marloes, the selected childcare provider, shall not be liable for any damage caused. The parent/guardian agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the International AIDS Society and Tante Marloes harmless from and against any and all liability, loss and expense (including attorney’s fees) or any claims arising out of or resulting from its activity and caused by their child. How to book Childcare Services for your Accompanying Child(ren) Parents/guardians must have submitted the childcare booking form before the 6 July 2018. Childcare booking is not complete until receipt of a written confirmation email stating that the booking has been accepted. Confirmations are sent by email within 4 days of receipt of booking. Parents/guardians will receive a final email from the childcare provider beginning of July 2018, asking to reconfirm their child’s attendance at the childcare services. Parents/guardians must reply to this email within four days. No reply in due time will lead to the childcare booking being cancelled. Please note In order to have access to the childcare service, the child must be registered as an “accompanying child” for the conference at the applicable registration fee and in accordance with the Terms and Conditions for delegates. In addition, the parent/guardian consent form must be completed for each accompanying child and submitted to the AIDS 2018 Registration Department. Children without an “accompanying children” registration and name badge will not be given access to the conference area, and will therefore not have access to the childcare room. Additional information It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide all important information related to the child (including allergies and health conditions) when submitting the childcare booking form, and to remind the caregiver on site when checking the child in at the childcare room. For children with special needs, the childcare service provider reserves the right to not accept the application, based on the capacity of the childcare services, on a case-by-case basis.

Student and Early Career Pop-Up Talks: Being a scientist is more than working in the lab, office, or field. We all have experiences, talents, and stories to share, and Student and Early Career Pop-Up Talks are the chance for you to share yours. Student and early career participants will get to convey their ideas in a creative and approachable format and have a chance to display something beyond the traditional scientific talk. Students and early career scientists give 5 minute, TED-style presentation on an Earth and space science topic youre passionate about. 2018 Pop-Up Talks included singing/dancing your science, a mental health monologue, an overview of current political influence on scientific career prospects, and much more.This years Pop-Up Talks are encouraged to address the following theme: "For a resilient scientist and planet." 2. Career Center Theatre: Whether you are a student or early-mid career professional, if you are considering employment outside of academia, this interactive workshop will familiarize you with resume essentials. A resume is a marketing tool that communicates how your experiences and strengths demonstrate your alignment for a particular job. It is a way for you to emphasize your assets as a positive first impression. How do you highlight knowledge gained through courses and apply them to real work experience? What criteria is important to include and is there a specific order? How do I format my resume and phrase my skills so I stand out from the other applicants? 3. Telling Stories about Science and Ourselves: When we want to increase visibility and connect with others about science, we need to humanize science and scientists. One of the best ways of doing this is through telling stories—about our own journeys as well as about our science. This session will be a quick introduction to story structure and elements, the power of including emotion, and the benefits and challenges of sharing stories of ourselves as well as our work. 4. How to get Involved this Election Year: 2020 is a critical year to ensure that science is a key issue in elections—in local, state, and national races. From climate change to ocean policy to environmental health and more, so many critical policy issues depend on strong science input. You can help ensure that science is part of the conversation as candidates discuss their platforms in the coming months. Whether you aren’t sure if you are ready to talk to candidates, or are looking for new ways to get more involved, this session will guide you with a number of different opportunities and leave you with a clear set of options to get involved this election year. 5. Hashtag Science: Science Communication through Social Media: Social media, for all its faults, has allowed scientists much greater reach, across scientific disciplines and beyond, and has helped foster new dialogues and communities. This session will discuss the benefits and challenges of social media (and its different outlets), ways to effectively incorporate multimedia, and how to develop powerful messages and campaigns that can reach many audiences. 6. CV 101: Employment in academia is very competitive. Whether you seek a research or teaching position, you will need a Curriculum Vitae (CV) rather than a resume. A CV is a detailed record that communicates how your skills, knowledge, and experiences demonstrate your alignment for a particular job and higher education institution. Discuss the differences between writing a resume and writing a CV. How are CVs formatted? What skills should be detailed? How do you customize your CV so your presentations, publications, or honors/awards are featured? 7. Networking and Career Tips 101: Join this interactive workshop on the best tips and tricks for networking and career planning. 8. Messaging to Policymakers: Science communication is a valuable skill that enables you to make a difference in the world. Communicating effectively to policymakers is a particularly effective way to effect change, and is no harder than any other science communication, with a little knowledge and practice. If you want to share your science with your city council, state senators, or even Presidential candidates, the approach is the same. Come learn how to effectively message to policymakers at this workshop. While the focus will be on U.S. policymakers, many of these tools can be used in other countries and we encourage attendees from any location. 9. Interviews 101: Whether you are seeking employment in academia or industry, all students, graduates, and jobseekers can benefit from learning best tips and tricks for successful interviewing. An interview is a conversation where both parties need information about the other. Both sides must engage and exchange information for the interaction to be successful. A resume or CV will demonstrate your technical skills but the interview is your chance to highlight your non-technical skills. How do you highlight your strengths and competencies? Ho do I describe skills that I could improve? If I have limited experience, how do I demonstrate that I am still qualified and eager to learn? 10. Resumes 101: Whether you are a student or early-mid career professional, if you are considering employment outside of academia, this interactive workshop will familiarize you with resume essentials. A resume is a marketing tool that communicates how your experiences and strengths demonstrate your alignment for a particular job. It is a way for you to emphasize your assets as a positive first impression. How do you highlight knowledge gained through courses and apply them to real work experience? What criteria is important to include and is there a specific order? How do I format my resume and phrase my skills so I stand out from the other applicants? 11. Can We Talk? Difficult Conversations with Underrepresented People of Color about Diversifying STEM Fields: Interactive session focusing on Social Belonging and Allyship: In this 2-hour workshop, participants will learn about two important components to STEM retention for underrepresented people of color (UR-POC), sense of belonging and allyship. Through the use of film and various interactive exercises, participants will explore how to create and support belonging for diverse groups within institutional settings and how to be an ally to UR-POC. Allies will learn how to understand their role/s and how to better support UR-POC when they are confronted with various obstacles ranging from psycho-emotional situations to systemic.) Yes(1.

The Ethics Bowl is a debate competition for undergraduate and graduate students where teams from different universities compete by debating solutions to the ethical dilemmas archaeologists face in our day-to-day lives. Each year, hypothetical cases are developed using real-life experiences and suggestions from academic, CRM, and avocational archaeologists around the world. Ethics Bowl teams then formulate and defend reactions and solutions to these ethical dilemmas using their academic knowledge of numerous ethical guidelines and laws, as well as their personal research and fieldwork experiences. Judges drawn from professional and eminent archaeologists grade the teams on their responses, throw them curveball questions that extend or change key components of the cases, and decide which teams advance to the final round and compete for prizes. It’s an awesome experience and a great opportunity to practice ethical decision making before being placed in a hard situation in real life.
