Next week, from June 18-22, researchers from around the world will gather in Scarborough, Ontario, for the 61st Annual International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) Conference on Great Lakes Research. The theme of the conference is Great Science for Tomorrow’s Solutions. LimnoTech is a conference sponsor, and will be well represented at the conference, with many of us chairing and presenting throughout the week. A list of LimnoTech session and workshop chairs and presenters is provided below.
