What is FRSES?

FRSES is a student-run symposium that provides an opportunity for Front Range students doing research in ecology to showcase their work and network in a friendly and supportive peer environment. Highlights of the event this year include a keynote address and exciting workshop hosted by our invited speaker, oral presentation sessions, and poster session, an awards banquet to recognize exceptional student work, and a virtual social gathering to celebrate the success of our participating students.

Submitting an abstract to FRSES and presenting your research, in either a poster or oral presentation, is a great way to practice communicating science. This is a skill that students seldom get to work on so FRSES provides a valuable opportunity. Research can be presented in all stages of its development, from proposed research to completed research. The feedback gained from faculty judges is intended to help to improve your research design or your communication skills.
