Information, registration, and abstract submission are now available for
the Seventh International Conference on Coelenterate Biology (ICCB) at
ICCB7 will occur 6-11 July 2003 at the University of Kansas, Lawrence.
This will be the first ICCB to be held in the US, and one session (or
will be the 2003 North American meeting of the International Society for
Themes of the meeting are "Biogeography and environmental biology of
coelenterates" (anticipated sessions include those on freshwater
bioinformatics, coral reefs, and deep-sea ecology), "Evolutionary and
developmental biology of coelenterates" (anticipated sessions include
on taxonomy and systematics, reproduction and development, and life
cycles), and "Coelenterate anatomy, physiology, and behavior"
sessions include those on neurobiology, cnidae, and gametogenesis).
Integration of presentations is an overarching goal of the meeting.
Workshops will follow the ICCB for 1-2 days, depending on topic and
of participants. Those being planned include "Electronic sources of
information about anthozoans," and "Octocorallian systematics."
Graduate student members of ISRS who are citizens of a developing
and are enrolled in graduate study in a developing country are eligible

We hope to see you in Kansas in July!
