PaCIEis pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for its 2013 annual conference —Building Global Competence through Collaborative Strategies in International Education. This year’s theme embodies a significant part of PaCIE’s mission — to build and strengthen connections and collaborations among and between educational institutions, governmental bodies, businesses, and non-profit organizations throughout Pennsylvania. By showcasing the development of successful collaborations, PaCIE strives to inspire the creation of new networks and initiatives and to provide concrete examples of the ways in which this can be done. Individuals representing a host of academic disciplines as well as areas of international education administration, government, business, and non-profit work are welcome to submit session proposals. The conference will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 11-12, 2013. Session proposals are due by March 1, 2013.
This is a three-day event meant to spotlight human impact on the marine environment as well as ways we can come together to protect some of its most charismatic and vulnerable inhabitants. OES begins the evening of Friday, October 11th with a night of presentations from three exceptional speakers addressing the link between cultural ecology and biodiversity, food security through sustainable aquaculture, and trends in marine mammal necropsy. At the culmination of the evening, Dr. Joy Reidenberg, a regular contributor to "Inside Nature's Giants" on PBS, will be performing a necropsy on a porpoise cadaver recovered by a local stranding network. This event is free and open to the public and includes hors d'oeuvres courtesy of Otolith Sustainable Seafood plus dinner.
