Call for professional development short course proposals for CEW 2018

Deadline: March 30th, 2018

Dear CEW members and friends,

The 45th Annual Canadian Ecotoxicity Workshop (CEW) will be held in Vancouver, BC from September 30th to October 3rd, 2018. This year’s theme is ‘Science. Application. Action.’ Short courses can address a wide array of subjects such as emerging scientific fields, professional skill development, policy, and practical training sessions. We are inviting proposals in the areas of terrestrial and aquatic ecotoxicology.

If you are interested in leading a professional development short course that fits within the scope of CEW, please submit a brief (up to 500 words) proposal for a course that includes:
1) the course title
2) the proposed course content
3) the expertise of the instructor (and co-instructors if applicable)

Please identify:
A) whether this is a full (6 h) or half (3 h) day course
B) anticipated maximum and minimum enrolment numbers
C) any special space and/or equipment needs

Courses are expected to be, at a minimum, revenue-neutral such that any costs incurred in course delivery will be offset by participant registration fees.

Proposals must be submitted to the CEW 2018 Professional Development Courses Committee ( by March 30th, 2018. The Committee will evaluate course proposals on the basis of suitability to the meeting theme, potential interest, and anticipated costs. Final decisions will be made by April 13th, 2018. All courses must be delivered on Sunday, September 30th, 2018.
