Dear Member of the Coral Reef Science Community,

    I am pleased to announce that the International Society for Reef Studies has selected a venue for the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium. 12ICRS will be convened in Australia in June or July of 2012. Terry Hughes, Director of the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, will chair the organizing committee. ISRS will co-sponsor the symposium, as it does for all the International Coral Reef Symposia.

    The bidding process was conducted by an ISRS committee, which was chaired by Robert Richmond and composed of an international cross-section of the Society.s membership. After considering a variety of options the committee recommended Australia to the ISRS Council, and the Council voted unanimously in favor. We thank Bob and the other committee members for all their hard work.

    More details will follow on the 12ICRS webpage, http://www.coralcoe.org.au/events/12icrsintro.html which will be up shortly.


Rich Aronson

ISRS President
