We are pleased to continue the Kodiak Area Marine Science Symposium (KAMSS). KAMSS 2017 will be the third regional symposium that connects the Kodiak community to the marine science research conducted in the region.

Sponsored by the Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, KAMSS provides a forum for researchers to share findings within the research community and to the public. The symposium offers an opportunity for stakeholders to engage and understand how Kodiak’s marine environment and resources function, change, and affect our lives and livelihoods. In addition, it offers opportunities for researchers to form a plan for integrated, cooperative, and community-inspired marine research.

Patterned after the preceding symposiums, KAMSS 2017 oral and poster presentations will span all dimensions of Kodiak’s marine science!

New this year, topical areas will be organized thematically, with a cross-disciplinary approach to best encourage dialogue among disciplines. Also new, each session will be followed by a facilitated discussion to collectively engage participants.

There is no charge to attend the symposium, but we encourage you to register well before the event so that we can better accommodate the total number of participants for the symposium.

The Best Western Kodiak Inn is offering a discount rate of $100 per night plus tax. The rate extends 2 days prior to the beginning of the conference. To secure the special meeting rate, contact the hotel or book online using the group code KAMMS17 (not KAMSS17).
