We are pleased to announce the 3rd International Symposium on Deep-Sea
Corals (ISDSC) will be held November 28-December 2, 2005 in sunny Miami,
Florida at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and 
Science (RSMAS) on Virginia Key, an island off the coast of Miami, 
Florida, USA. 
Oral presentations will take place in the 250-seat RSMAS Auditorium.

The purpose of the 3rd ISDSC is to facilitate global exchange of the 
current scientific
 knowledge of deep-sea corals and associated fauna and to discuss 
possible statutory
means available to conserve and protect deep-sea habitat. So mark your 
and make plans to attend this symposium.

VERY SPECIAL REQUEST: If you could please take a moment to forward this
message to your staff, external colleagues and constituents who may be 
interested in
attending, we would appreciate your help with getting the word out.

This symposium is designed to bring together scientists, resource 
managers, students,
and policy-makers from around the world who are actively involved in the 
and research management of deep-sea corals and other deep-sea habitats 
as well as
the animals associated with them. As responsible management decisions 
are based
upon the best available science, resource managers and policy-makers 
will also find
this symposium invaluable to identifying information gaps and planning

        Sorry if I seemed glib on this.  You wouldn't believe the amount
    of mail I have to review that never even sees the light of day on
    coral-list.  If I post it, I then get everybody's vacation messages,
    bounces, and questions about the topic (which I then have to take
    time out to write back, forward, search...whatever).  But I do want
    to cooperate, so if you're having problems, send me the message,
    I'll put it into plain text (unless you do that for me), and I'll
    post it for you.
