The 11th International Coral Reef Symposium convenes in Ft. Lauderdale, FL,
USA, July 7-11, 2008.  Over 2,000 attendees are expected from the
international marine science, management, and conservationist communities.
There will be 25 Mini-Symposia topics, representing a wide diversity of
coral reef science and management opportunities for attendees. The South
Florida venue will provide convenient access for experts and policymakers to
visit and study US and other reef systems in the Atlantic, Caribbean, Gulf
of Mexico, and Meso-America. 


Every four years the International Coral Reef Symposium convenes as a major
scientific conference to provide the latest knowledge about coral reefs
worldwide. The theme for the 11th ICRS is REEFS FOR THE FUTURE. The
Symposium goals are to:

.           provide a scientific basis for coral reef ecosystem management
by articulating the state of the science with respect to current and
emerging stressors;

.           improve the understanding of reef condition, function, and
productivity; and

.           grow the fields of coral reef ecosystem science, conservation,
and multidisciplinary research by facilitating the exchange of ideas.
