Dear Coral Histologists/Histopathologists,

Following discussions with Coral Tissue Slide Reading Workshop
participants and the Coral Disease and Health Consortium (CDHC), I've
proposed a 2-day advanced workshop to convene immediately after the 11th
International Coral Reef Symposium at the Ft. Lauderdale Convention
Center. Click on Education, Exhibits, and Outreach (or go to
http://www.nova.edu/ncri/11icrs/exhibits.html) and scroll down to
"Associated Workshops" to read more about the proposed workshop.

Plans are still being made, but we need to know how many Symposium
attendees might be interested in staying on for this workshop (realizing
that big meetings can be exhausting and there are multiple opportunities
for fun and educational field trips that begin immediately after the
meeting).  We believe this will be a great opportunity for international
exchange of case studies, histotechniques, and ideas, because many of 
you will attend the 11ICRS.  However, with so much else going on at this 
meeting, another possibility might be to develop a Web-based session 
using the virtual slide collection under development by the CDHC.

So please let us know your thoughts on this so we can complete our plans
for the workshop, or revise them!  Thank you!
