    I'm afraid Michelle Sowder (MSowder at mail.ifas.ufl.edu) is very busy 
and is unable to send this herself, so herewith I'm sending it for her.  
Please direct all enquiries to her.  Thank you...Jim

All individuals involved in deep-sea coral research are strongly 
encouraged to submit an abstract under the appropriate symposium theme 
for consideration as an oral or poster presentation. Abstract 
submissions will be used to select presentations, and ALL abstracts, 
both oral and poster, will be published in the symposium book of 
abstracts. Abstracts must be submitted electronically no later than June 
1, 2005 via the conference web site where you will find detailed 
preparation instructions.

Everything you need to know about the conference is posted on the web 
site, so take a moment to visit the site today. 


This international symposium will follow the traditions of the first 2 
symposia in Halifax and Erlangen. Objectives are to summarize our 
existing knowledge on deep-sea corals in a peer-reviewed publication of 
the symposium proceedings and facilitate global exchange of current 
scientific knowledge on deep-sea corals and associated fauna and to 
discuss possible statutory means available to conserve and protect 
deep-sea habitat. 


As you already know, the 3**^rd **** ISDSC** will be held November 
28-December 2, 2005 in Miami, Florida USA, at the University of Miami 
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) on Virginia 
Key, an island off the coast of Miami.


Could you please take a moment to forward this email to your extension 
contacts, colleagues, friends, neighbors, or anyone else you know of who 
may be interested in the 3^rd International Symposium on Deep-Sea 
Corals? We would truly appreciate any assistance you can provide with 
getting the word out.
