 	All oral papers will be 20 minutes (15 min for presentation
 and 5 minutes for questions and discussion). Posters should be legible
 from a distance of at least 4 feet.  
 	Pre-registration and payment must accompany an
 abstract. Please check the appropriate space for oral talk or poster
 on the registration form. Abstracts are required for both oral papers
 and poster papers (see instructions below).  Abstracts will be
 compiled in a booklet form for all registrants. Note that the deadline
 for receipt (not postmark!) of the abstracts is September 3,
 1997. Direct ALL inquiries to: Dr. Jennifer Basil, (508) 289-7506,
 basil at No FAXED or LATE abstracts will be accepted 
 	Instructions for preparing an abstract: All portions of the
 abstract must be typed entirely within a 3" x 7" rectangle, such as
 the one below. Single space, leaving no top or left margins. Use a
 minimum of 10 pt type. Please send (1) two hard copies and (2) the
 identically formatted abstract on a 3.5" IBM-compatible disk, with
 your name, the title of your paper clearly printed on the label.  Your
 abstract(s) should be saved to this disk as an MS-Word for Windows
 v.6.0 or lower file, or a flat ascii text file. 
 	A good abstract accomplishes several objectives. First, it
 gives the purpose of your research so that others not familiar with
 your area of research will understand why you did what you did and be
 able to put your work into a broader context. Second, your methods are
 briefly summarized. Third, your key findings are provided. Finally,
 your conclusions and ideas about their implications are presented. The
 abstract is the only exposure that many people, including NERAB
 participants in other session, will have to your work. Make it as
 informative as you can. 

 	Housing is available at Swope Conference Center, right on the
 Marine Biological Laboratory campus (see housing forms). There are
 also a number of hotels within walking distance of the Marine
 Biological Laboratory  (Sands of Time: (508) 548-6300; Nautilus Motor
 Inn: (508) 548-1525; Sleepy Hollow Motor Inn: (508) 548-1986).  A bit
 further out in Falmouth (you'll need a car) are the Quality Inn (508)
 540-2000, and Admirality Inn (508) 548-4240.   
 	Meals will be available at the Swope Conference Center (see
 housing forms) but you must register for the meal plan in advance to
 receive the meeting rates.  In addition, there are also a number of
 restaurants in Woods Hole that, of course, serve seafood, but they
 also serve  vegetarian food, burgers, etc. There is also a great pub
 in town, the Captain Kidd. 
 Onsite registration and registration received after Sept 3 will be
 subject to the following rates: 
 				Faculty	Postdocs/Students
 Registration:			$35.00		$25.00	
 Housing Package:		$220.00		$220.00
 Housing 1 night:		$110.00		$110.00

 	Car: See attached maps and instructions. Parking areas are
 outside the Swope center, where participants can be house and meals
 are served (see attached map of the Marine Biological
 Laboratory). Parking is free in MBL lots for participants, and permits
 can be picked up with housing materials. 
 	Air: Woods Hole is approximately 1.75 hours from Boston (Logan
 Airport) and 1.5 hours from Providence, RI (T.F. Greene
 Airport). There is regular bus service directly from Logan to Woods
 Hole via Bonanza Buslines. There are also small flights from Boston
 and Providence to Hyannis airport, 25 miles from Woods Hole. If you
 fly to the meeting, we suggest taking the Bonanza Bus to and from
 Logan. It is convenient (they take you right to your terminal) and
 costs about $22.00 for a round-trip ticket to Woods Hole. 

 From The North:  Take Interstate 95 South which will take you around
 	Boston. South of Boston take Route 24 South Towards Taunton
 	and Fall River to Interstate 495.  Follow Route 495 to the
 	Bourne Bridge (It becomes route 25 two exits before the bridge). 

 From the West:  Take the Mass Turnpike (Interstate 90) to Route 495
 	South. Follow Route 495 to the Bourne Bridge (It becomes route
 	25 two exits before the bridge). 

 From the South:  Take Interstate 95 North to Interstate 195 East. At
 	the end of Interstate 195 take Route 25 East to the Bourne
 	Bridge (do not take 495 North). 

 FROM THE BOURNE BRIDGE:  Take the Bridge across the Cape Cod Canal.
 Follow Route 28 South to Falmouth.  In Falmouth Rt 28 becomes a local
 route.  When Rt 28 bears left into Falmouth continue on Woods Hole
 Road.  You will see a sign that says "Woods Hole 4 Miles".  When you
 reach Woods Hole bear right at the Bank of Boston (away from the
 Ferries) and continue across the drawbridge.  After the Drawbridge
 your first right (if you don't count parking lots) will be MBL St.
 The Swope center is at the end of the street.  Park along MBL street
 (metered) and enter the Swope.  At the front desk you can ask for a
 parking pass and directions to the appropriate parking lot.  Meeting
 registration will be handled in the Swope on Friday Evening.  Later
 registration will be in the Lillie Auditorium Lobby.
