48th annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium

April 12, 8:00am - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall Hall (rooms 105A/105B)

The 48th annual Albert L. Tester Memorial Symposium will be held at Kuykendall Hall (rooms 105A/105B) on from April 10th through April 12th, 2024. This year’s theme, Two-Eyed Seeing, focuses on seeing through one eye with a western science lens and through the other with an indigenous science lens. When viewed equally and together, the vision is clear. This theme encourages a two-way stream of knowledge, promoting stronger relationships between and amongst researchers, community, and ‘āina. We will open up the symposium with a talk by our distinguished keynote speaker, Dr. Noelani Puniwai, who is an UH alumna, Assistant Professor with the Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, Kānaka Maoli hailing from Moku of Puna on Hawai'i Island, and all around pono scientist. This will be followed by three days of student research talks in the format of either 5-minute rapid fire talks, 5-minute outreach talks or 12-minute talks. We will also have a poster session on the afternoon of April 11 and a service day at Paepae o He'eia on the morning of April 13. Last but certainly not least, we will have a keynote speaker lunch, a lunchtime workshop, and lunchtime time trivia to learn more about each other’s research. Please keep an eye out for future announcements, including when to submit your abstracts - we encourage all undergraduate and graduate students to submit as it's a great opportunity to share your research in a comfortable setting amongst friends and colleagues! Please reach out to testerms@hawaii.edu if you have any questions and keep an eye out on our website for more announcements.
