Student Activities

Attention Students: there are a handful of events taking place during the US-IALE 2017 Annual Meeting geared specifically for you!

Sunday, April 9
2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Student Activity (TBD)

Monday, April 10
12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Student/Mentor Lunch
(Advance registration required)
The student-mentor lunch brings students and landscape ecology professionals together to discuss professional development in a small group setting. Both students and professionals sign up in advance for this event through the conference registration process. We try to match students with professionals in their field of interest — academia, state and federal government, nonprofit organizations or business. At the event, dining tables will be labeled and you will be directed to a particular table based on your area of interest.

Tuesday, April 11
1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Student Workshop
(Advance registration required, free for students)
More information will be available closer to the conference; please check back for updates.

6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
“We’ll Pick up the Tab” Social
To foster interaction between students and professional landscape ecologists, we're asking non-students to "pick up the tab" for student drinks at the pre-banquet evening social. Participating professionals will pre-purchase tickets for random distribution to attending students. Students will receive a ticket with a sponsor's name on the back. To redeem their ticket, students must find this sponsor at the social and introduce themselves. Students are encouraged to ask others at the social for help in finding their sponsor. Happy networking!

Wednesday, April 12
8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Offsite Student Social 
Please plan to join US-IALE student attendees for a night of socializing and unwinding with friends you’ve made throughout the week. A drink ticket will be distributed to each student upon arrival at the social. Proper I.D. required for alcoholic beverages; tickets can also be used for nonalcoholic beverages.


Student Presentation Feedback
The US-IALE conference provides students with an opportunity to gain experience presenting their research results and to gather feedback from other landscape ecologists. To maximize this benefit, students can now request that their poster or oral presentation be evaluated by practicing landscape ecologists. Evaluators will provide constructive comments on both the student’s research and presentation style. This is separate from the student presentation competition, and students in all stages of their research are encouraged to participate. To participate, just register for the Student Presentation Feedback Program during the online conference registration process.
