Lightning Strikes Thursday at the I Hotel

The third Prairie Lightning Symposium will be held Thursday, March 20 at the I Hotel and Conference Center.  The symposium features five-minute lighting talks from forty of your colleagues from across the Prairie Research Institute. Like previous symposia in 2011 and 2012 this event is an entertaining opportunity to learn about the diverse research being conducted by one or more of PRI’s Surveys.


The facility opens Thursday morning at 8:30 with a continental breakfast and plenty of coffee.  The program gets underway at 9 a.m. sharp.  And the afternoon concludes with a reception and hosted poster session starting at 4 p.m., with live music by the Irish folk band SMC.


The Prairie Lightning web page has the 24-page program booklet with complete titles and abstracts, videos of prior years’ talks, and links to social media to help spread the word to friends and colleagues.
