Dear Coral-Listers:
    We would like to inform you that we are now accepting abstracts for the
11th ICRS Mini-Symposium 1, "Lessons From the Past", being held in Fort
Lauderdale, July 7-11, 2008. 
    The 11th ICRS science program will address scientific questions within
the framework of a series of Mini-Symposia developed to address problems and
issues on contemporary coral reefs that will assist management to sustain
future reefs.
    The central topics of Mini-Symposium 1 are as follows:
    1) What factors have led to distribution, health, and demise of coral
reef communities over geologic time with emphasis on the last one million
    2) How have our approaches to Caribbean coral reef geology changed since
the 1970's? A tribute to Robert F. Dill.
    3) Is the past the key to the present and future? How can past patterns
of coral reef change inform the discussion about recent coral decline?   
    Submissions that address these questions are encouraged but not
mandatory. We welcome abstract submissions on these topics as well as all
aspects of "Lessons From the Past". If you have an alternative question you
are addressing, please so note. All submissions addressing "Lessons From the
Past" are encouraged to be submitted for consideration.
    When submitting your abstracts, please use the session code:
