Register Now for 11th International Coral Reef Symposium

Postby rcinfo » Wed Aug 08, 2007 9:35 am



The 11th International Coral Reef Symposium convenes in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA, July 8-11, 2008. Over 2,000 attendees are expected from the international marine science, management, and conservationist communities. There will be 25 Mini-Symposia topics, representing a wide diversity of coral reef science and management opportunities for attendees. The South Florida venue will provide convenient access for experts and policymakers to visit and study US and other reef systems in the Atlantic, Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and Meso-America.

Every four years the International Coral Reef Symposium convenes as a major scientific conference to provide the latest knowledge about coral reefs worldwide. The theme for the 11th ICRS is REEFS FOR THE FUTURE. The Symposium goals are to:

• provide a scientific basis for coral reef ecosystem management by articulating the state of the science with respect to current and emerging stressors;

• improve the understanding of reef condition, function, and productivity; and

• grow the fields of coral reef ecosystem science, conservation, and multidisciplinary research by facilitating the exchange of ideas.

Online symposium and field trip registration, abstract submission, and hotel reservations are now open. Please visit for registration, information on scientific sessions and the overall details of the meeting.
