Information required for a seminar / action by host

Dear speaker,

We would like to ensure that maximum notification about a talk is provided to the biodiversity community in Singapore, and that enough information is available to the reader. This helps us plan and adequately publicise the seminar with posters, e-newsletter and webpage announcements, so please supply this information early. We try not to miss an opportunity to hear about your work when we get the chance and would like to afford others the opportunity too!

Information required:

  1. A title
  2. A short paragraph “About the speaker”.
  3. The speaker’s affiliation (Institution) and/or country.
  4. A short paragraph “About the talk” (abstract).
  5. High-resolution relevant images of the study subject or site.
  6. 5. A photo of the speaker.

Host checklist

  1. Check the department schedule, e.g.:
    • avoid clashes biodiversity practicals – graduate students may be teaching,
    • do not use the Friday 4-5 pm departmental seminar slot,
    • avoid clases with SBG and NBRC seminars where possible.
  2. Secure a location preferably DBS Conference Room (Block S3) or an SR (Block S2) via Sally Soh.
  3. Confirm the date with the speaker once venue and date are secured.
  4. Receive the text and photos for publicity; process and send to:
    • Yong An Nee (department poster),
