The second BEAMS Symposium was held in Charleston April 20-22, 2023 at the Francis Marion Hotel. The 2022 symposium was so successful (and fun!) that we extended the agenda by a half day, allowing time for visiting conference attendees to present more information about their company’s/agency’s activities.
At a glance, the 2023 Symposium began with our meet-and-greet reception Thursday evening, April 20th. On Friday, BEAMS students presented 12 research posters and 7 talks, and 13 companies/agencies hosted program information display tables. Saturday morning focused on presentations (9) by attending professionals
about their exciting current projects.

Symposium History: In April 2022, the BEAMS Program hosted its first BEAMS Symposium, at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, SC. The original purpose of the Symposium was to provide the 20+ matriculated BEAMS students an opportunity to present their research in person (rather than remotely) at a professional conference. Due to the pandemic, no such opportunities had existed since the 2020 Ocean Sciences meeting in San Diego.
