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

zed scientists will give a brief overview of the current state of knowledge about the spill and its impacts and discuss how research has been shared and coordinated.
  • In the "Human Connection," (10:10 to 11 a.m.) representatives of industries and communities affected by the spill will discuss its socioeconomic impacts and the challenges of accessing and providing information on a local level.
  • In "Covering Catastrophe," (11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.) representatives of the news media will discuss how they covered the oil spill and share their ideas for improving the reporting of complex and controversial scientific matters.
  • In "Promoting Partnership," (1:15 to 2:30 p.m.) representatives from government and industry will discuss their role in coordinating research and the flow of information. The panelists also will offer their perspectives on how to strengthen collaboration among stakeholders.
  • "Building Bridges," (2:45 to 4 p.m.) is a roundtable discussion that will bring representatives from the earlier sessions together to synthesize ideas and define areas of consensus.

    A reception hosted by the UGA Franklin College will be held Jan. 26 from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. in Hill Atrium at the Georgia Center.

    UGA Vice President for Research David Lee noted that the symposium continues the university's leadership role in responding to the nation's worst maritime oil spill and encouraged faculty, students and members of the community to attend.

    "We expect the lessons learned from this symposium to have implications for several other complex situations that involve the intersection of science, government, industry and the public," Lee said.
