Northeast Algal Symposium 2019 will be held at Salem State University and the Hawthorne Hotel in historic Salem Massachusetts from April 26-28th, 2019. The co-conveners are Thea Popolizio ( and Greg Boyer (

The theme for this year’s symposium is “Translating Science into Action”. We have invited two speakers to facilitate that effort. Kelly Kryc, the Director of Conservation Policy and Leadership at the New England Aquarium, is an energy and environment policy professional who formerly held positions with the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the U.S. State Department, The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the U.S. Department of the Interior. Jarrett Byrnes, a seaweed biologist at UMass Boston, works on the causes and consequences of complexity in nature including how humans alter the diversity and interconnectedness of life on earth. Both speakers will focus on how you can involve citizens in your work and translate your studies into action.

Registration materials are available online at The registration and abstract deadline is March 29th, 2019.
