AGA's 2018 President, Rosemary Gillespie, is hosting a meeting to explore processes at the early stages of adaptive diversification


VOLCANO INFO:  The Kohala region where the meeting will take place is far from the volcano activity. Here is a link to the hazard zones on the island.  Hawaii Preparatory Academy is in Zone 8 which is very unlikely to have any volcanic activity.

POSTER INFO:   Poster abstract submission and free student registration has ended.  All posters submitted have been accepted.  Posters will be displayed on individual 48"wide x 36" tall trifold boards.  Your poster may be 24" wide, which fits in the center section of the board, or up to 48" to cover the entire board width.  Please no posters taller than 36".  Posters can be mounted during the opening registration reception on Sunday or on Monday morning.
