A CALL FOR POSTERS for the Third Annual MSMR Enrichment Symposium
All Creatures Big and Small … Animal Enrichment in a Laboratory Environment
April 14, 2011, at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston, MA

Have you constructed a great enrichment device?  Have you got an interesting or unusual enrichment solution for a difficult species or situation?  Do you have a lesson learned?  Have you found an innovative solution for washing, recycling, or storing enrichment items?  Your colleagues want to learn all about it!

This year’s symposium will present current research and collective wisdom about enrichment in a wide range of species including swine, non-human primates, aquatics, canines, and rodents.  We are seeking colorful and informative posters on any aspect of enrichment used in any laboratory animal species.  Poster proposals (in pdf or PowerPoint format) are due February 28, 2011.

Poster Specs
Posters will be mounted on boards 2′ wide by 3′ high.  Posters should be submitted to MSMR by February 28, 2011. It is suggested that you use PowerPoint or a similar program to lay out your poster. If your poster exceeds 2MB in size, please submit a pdf file of the poster instead (to decrease it to a size that can be emailed to MSMR).  Applicants will be notified of acceptance by March 18, 2011.
