The Joint Aquatic Sciences meeting is a joint conference between the Society of Freshwater Science, the Phycological Society of America, the Association fo rthe Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, and the Society of Wetland Scientists. It was held in Portland, Oregon this year from May 19th - 23rd. Ruth Briland and Conor Keitzer attended and presented a poster and talk, respectively.

The AEL was in full force helping to judge this year's State Science Day, which was held on May 10th at the Ohio State University's campus.
Drs. Mike Fraker, Kristen DeVanna, and Conor Keitzer (post-docs in the Ludsin Lab) helped to judge for the Ohio Sea Grant scholarship. Ben Bolam spent the day as a State Science Day general entry judge.
