2015 UVM Student Research Conference

Day Event Description: This year the conference is in the Grand Maple Ballroom located on the 4th floor of the Davis Center. The SRC is open to all students, including medical, graduate, and undergraduate students. Last year's SRC was a great success -- more than 300 students participated.

This year a new element has been added to increase awareness of the conference and of student research: SRC Instagram #uvmresearch Contest. Faculty and students can Instagram photos of their research, scholarship and creative works, and tag their photos with #uvmresearch. The most engaging
stories will win prizes at the conference. For more information and the rules go to:
www.uvm.edu/~uvmsrc/?Page=students/instagram.php&SM=students/_studentsmenu.html

Below are some details and deadlines to be aware of:

*Application for the conference*: Students can begin applying to the conference on Monday, February 23rd. Please note: faculty mentorship is required for all students, and as always, support will be provided
in the form of workshops and online tutorials for students.

*Instagram contest entry date*: All entries must be submitted (with at least 10 photos) to theuvmsrc@uvm.edu email address by noon on Monday, April 14th.

What counts as "research": Any independent scholarship, creative works or innovation. It is mandatory for students to be working with a faculty mentor. This should be work beyond the normal scope for a course.

The SRC is sponsored by the Vice President for Research Richard Galbraith, Dean of the Graduate College Cindy Forehand and Interim Dean of the Honors College Lisa Schnell.

Seminar: Dr. Ford Ballantyne, University of Georgia

Time: 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Location: Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Lab
Description: Linking Ecological and Evolutionary Changes in Traits to Whole Ecosystem Dynamics
Dr.Ford Ballantyne, Assistant Professor, Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia

Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Lab
Rm #207 (Teaching Lab)

Dr. Ballantyne earned a MS in statistics and a PhD in Biology at University of New Mexico. He then went on to postdocs at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Princeton University. After earning his PhD, he became an assistant professor at Kansas University, and is now teaching at University of Georgia. Dr. Ballantyne is interested in how dynamics at the level of individual organisms conspire to generate patterns in ecological populations, communities and ecosystems. The dynamics of individual organisms are influenced by their genomes and the environments they inhabit, which means that patterns we observe result from a complex interplay between the expression of genetic information, and interactions between individuals and their abiotic environments. Ballantyne uses both mathematical models and experimental approaches to study ecological dynamics from the level of transcription regulation
to global biogeochemistry.

Following the presentation, please join us for a social hour at the Skinny Pancake!
