Bays & Bayous Symposium 2020 @ Golden Nugget Biloxi Hotel and Casino
Dec 1 – Dec 3 all-day

The Bays and Bayous Symposium will be held Dec. 1-3 at the Golden Nugget Biloxi Hotel and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. The theme for the 2020 event is “Sound Science, Sound Policy: A 2020 Vision for the Future.” Bays and Bayous will formally begin at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 1, and end at noon on Thursday, Dec. 3.

Additional topical workshops will be held on Monday, Nov. 30; before the event begins on Tuesday, Dec. 1; and after the symposium concludes on Thursday, Dec. 3.

The symposium focuses on (but is not limited to) coastal science research, education and outreach in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Scientists from universities, NGOs and government agencies share their research findings at the event, and leaders from coastal municipalities showcase their resilience and conservation efforts. Educators and extension professionals also present their research and successful outreach efforts. Popular topics at the symposium include oil spill impacts, habitat management and restoration, climate and hazard resilience, living resources, and water quality and supply.

Typically, the symposium includes 150-200 poster and oral presentations, and the event is known as a networking opportunity for the 350-450 coastal science professionals and students who attend. The symposium also includes special awards for top student presenters.

The 2020 Bays and Bayous Symposium website will be updated throughout the planning process as more information becomes available.
