Research Advances in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Ecology Symposium (RAFWE)!

SAVE THE DATE: RAFWE 2024 will be Friday, April 12th. 


This year we will be cohosting our symposium with College of Forestry's Western Forestry Graduate Research Symposium (WFGRS)!   


What is RAFWE?

The Research Advances in Fisheries Wildlife and Ecology Symposium (RAFWE) showcases research, extension, and outreach activities conducted by students who conduct research in the fields of fisheries, wildlife, and ecology here, or from other universities, and is hosted by the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Sciences at Oregon State University.

Interested in presenting?

Are you an undergraduate or graduate student doing research related to fisheries, wildlife, or ecology? Then you should present your work at the Research Advances in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Ecology (RAFWE) Symposium at Oregon State University (OSU)! Both graduate and undergraduate students from any department are encouraged to present their research at any stage of development: proposal, data collection, preliminary results, published in Science, or research-adjacent talks about outreach, art, or other topics. 

The 2024 call for poster and oral presentations is currently open!

Submit your abstracts here by March 15th!

Students can give a 15-minute oral presentation (12 minute presentation with 3 minutes for Q&A) or present a poster during the hour-long lunch.

Interesting in attending?

Registration is free, and open to all, but presentations will only be given by students (undergraduate or graduate) conducting research in the fields of fisheries, wildlife, or ecology. Included with registration is a free breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as coffee and snacks throughout the day. Please indicate on the registration form which meals you would like, so we can get an accurate head count! Faculty, graduate students, and postdocs are encouraged to sign up to judge the oral and poster presentations. The sign up will be included on the registration form.
