Dear Colleagues:

Apologies for any cross postings.

I would like to invite anyone interested to submit a paper to the Aquatic 
Invasive Species session at the 21st Annual Conference, PACON 2008 in 
Honolulu, HI June 1-5, 2008.

In this session, I would like to encourage broad scope topics dealing with 
both freshwater and marine invasive species issues.  Hawaii has it share 
of invasive species problems and sessions like this can be vital to 
communicate similar issues across large spatial scales.  With increased 
communication across the Pacific region, we can achieve both increased 
awareness and improved management of invasive species issues.  To build 
off increasing regional awareness and initiatives of invasive species 
issues, sessions like this will serve to bring the experts together with 
people on the ground directly managing invasive species.

I am particularly interested in the advances of technologies for the 
management of marine invasive species topics that address eradication, 
control , early detection, and most importantly prevention.  Topics 
dealing with the advances of molecular tools for detection and protocols 
for vessel hulls are of particular interest.

For more information, please go to:


Abstracts are due February 29, 2008.  Please let me know for further 
questions and interest.

I hope to see you in Honolulu this summer.
