Call for Mini Symposium Topics

The Ninth International Coral Reef Symposium is scheduled for 23-27 October
2000 in Bali and arrangements for a successful conference are well underway.
For details and updated information visit our website at:

Whilst the in-country arrangements are being made by our colleagues in
Indonesia, the scientific programme is being co-ordinated by a committee set
up by the International Society for Reef Studies.  This call for
mini-symposia topics comes from that committee.

A traditional and highly successful part of previous international Coral
Reef Symposia has been the practice of conducting mini-symposia within the
main programme, which focus on important and topical issues. Persons
interested in leading a mini-symposia and taking responsibility for
organising peer-review of papers within that mini-symposia should complete
Form 4 available on the website or contact the Scientific Programme
Committee Chair, Dr. David Hopley, directly.  Contact details are shown

Examples of mini symposia topics from previous meetings can be obtained from
the published Proceedings of the Symposia.  Many of the issues highlighted
by these topics may still be highly relevant but imaginative new topics will
be most welcome.

Please note that the final date for submission of Mini-Symposia to the
Scientific Programme committee is 30 July 1999.  Subsequently the committee
will review proposals and put like minded proposers in contact with each
other with a view to amalgamation, where appropriate, by 15 September 1999.
It is hoped to have a draft programme of Mini-Symposia ready by mid October
1999 with a final programme of Mini-Symposia advertised on the home page by
mid November 1999.

We look forward to your imaginative and enthusiastic responses.
