Oil spill symposium to convene scientists, media, policymakers and community leaders
Date:1/5/2011

Athens, Ga. Scientists, government officials, Gulf Coast community leaders and journalists from across the nation will gather at the University of Georgia Jan. 25-27 for a symposium that will examine communication during the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

TheUGA/Georgia Sea Grant Oil Spill Symposium, titled "Building Bridges in Crisis," will begin Tuesday, Jan. 25 at 2 p.m. in the Chapel with a lecture by Sylvia Earle, National Geographic explorer-in-residence and former chief scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

On Jan. 26, a series of panel discussions and a roundtable discussion will bring leaders involved in Gulf response efforts together with the goal of improving information flow among stakeholders. Speakers will include Justin Gillis, New York Times reporter; Ray Jakubczak, BP Deepwater Horizon Florida Team representative; Richard Harris, National Public Radio reporter; Samantha Joye, University of Georgia professor of marine sciences; and Steve Murawski, former NOAA director of scientific programs and chief science adviser.

Like the Earle lecture, the Jan. 26 events are free and open to the public, although registration at http://oilspill.uga.edu is recommended. On Jan. 27, panelists will meet in a closed session to develop a white paper that will detail the lessons learned from the symposium.

"Communication among stakeholders was one of the major challenges associated with this oil spill, and the symposium will bring experts from several fields together with the goal of maximizing cooperation and collaboration," said Garnett Stokes, dean of the UGA Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and chair of the symposium.

The Jan. 26 panel and roundtable discussions will be held from 8:30 a.m. to

4 p.m. in Mahler Auditorium of the Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel.
