Bula all,

The International Ocean Institute (IOI) held its 27th Pacem in 
Maribus (Peace in the Oceans) Conference in Suva, FIJI last 
November 1999. The Conference Proceedings will be available on 
CD by the end of this month. The cost of producing this is 
extremely modest. 

Included on the CD are images taken during the Conference. 
Articles are both in PDF format or regular Microsoft doc files. 
Acrobat Reader is also included to enable users to use the PDF 
files. The CD is user friendly with detailed instructions on how to 
use it. Items in the Proceedings can be searched by Keywords, 
Authors, etc. Paper copies of the Proceedings are also printed for 
those who have limited or no access to computers. This method 
was adopted due to the need to reduce shipping and postage 
costs, among others.

It is apparent that the number of users advocating for Proceedings 
to be on CD is high and hopefully my humble vote for it may induce 
some favourable actions.

Thanking you for your time,
