Concurrent Sessions
9:00am - 5:00pm
Concurrent Sessions are usually 3 hours and 15 minutes and should not exceed six speakers. Ideally, sessions will have a variety of speakers (e.g., agency personnel, restoration practitioner, policy maker, recovery planner, tribal / community representative, fisheries biologist, academic, etc.). SRF encourages gender balance and participation of people from diverse backgrounds. SRF has an Open Call for Abstracts, so all potential presenters will need to formally submit an abstract in order to be considered as a presenter. The First Call for Abstracts will open in September 2023. SRF will forward abstracts to potential session or workshop coordinators promptly. Concurrent sessions will take place on March 28 and 29, 2024 at the Hyatt Sonoma Wine Country in Santa Rosa.
