(Sorry for these several postings... looks like the reply email address was wrong...)
After my first Call for Talks about one month ago, we had many interesting subjects suggested, and I would like to thank every one for that.
We selected some of the suggested topics in other to fit best with the International Coral Reef Conferences of Paris (CIRCoP), organized to increase general public (Divers, Reef Aquarists, sea lovers,...) knowledge about coral reefs.
However, we are still looking for about 4/6 talks to fill in our program.
