24th Annual
Southeastern Phycological Colloquy
November 1-3, 2002

J. Seward Johnson Marine Education and Conference Center
Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution
Fort Pierce, Florida

        It's that time of the year -- colloquy time!  For twenty-four years,
professionals and students who study algae (freshwater or marine),
seagrasses, or other marine plants have gathered together, from all over the
southeastern United States (and beyond), to share their research activities
and ideas.

        According to Webster, a colloquy is "a high-level serious
discussion".  Don't let the name fool you!  We'll have plenty of serious
discussion at this year's colloquy, but we plan to have some fun, too.  The
meeting is open to anyone interested; student contributions are especially
encouraged.  So bring all your colleagues, students, and friends!

        Contributed paper and poster sessions are planned for the full day
of Saturday, November 2.  Film/video presentations will also be welcomed.
If participants wish, tours of Harbor Branch and/or field trips to local
habitats will be held.


        A registration fee of $40 for students and $75 for other
participants will cover the cost of the meeting.  Payment includes a Friday
night cook-out and buffet breakfast, lunch, dinner, and coffee breaks on
Saturday.  Tickets for Saturday's dinner can be purchased separately for
accompanying (unregistered) spouses or guests.
