Dear Colleagues,

We write with an update on the 7th International Conference on
Coelenterate Biology (ICCB).

After consultation with members of the Israeli advisory committee and the
international scientific committee, we regret to announce that the ICCB
will not be held in October 2002 in Eilat, Israel, as previously planned.
This decision was made due to the current political situation in the
Middle East, and was reached after much deliberation. We continue to hope
for peace in the region.

We acknowledge the collaboration and continuous support of the many
colleagues and friends who helped us with the preparations towards the 7th

The new venue for the Conference will be Lawrence, Kansas, USA.  The new
date is tentatively 7-11 July 2003.  Please advise us regarding other
meetings that might be being held around that time or any other reasons
that those dates might be unsuitable, and we will attempt to make suitable
adjustments.  Suggestions for sessions and volunteers to organize sessions
and workshops are most welcome.

Yehuda Benayahu,
Chair, Organizing Committee for Israel

Daphne Fautin,
Chair, Organizing Committee for US
