Apologies for cross-postings
     Dear colleagues
  We would like to invite you to participate in the  session, "Reef Ecology: role of biotic and abiotic factors in reefs,  trophic  structures in reefs, stability of reef systems, modelling  and simulation of reef ecosystems", being held at the Euro ISRS Symposium 2010 in Wageningen, The Netherlands, December 13-17, 2010.
  The European ISRS Symposium brings together  researchers from various fields of coral reef related disciplines, traditionally with a  focus on tropical coral reef ecosystems. In the session “Reef Ecology” we hope to provide an elegant overview of the latest ecological processes shown to  be important and previously unrecognized structuring forces driving coral  reef community composition. Areas of interest could be (but are not  restricted to): System approaches, trophic effects, the importance of microbes in macroscopic processes, indirect effects, spatially explicit processes, integration  of processes towards system approaches using modeling and simulation. We  would also encourage a certain degree of speculation or presentations in a  “perspective” format where presenters aim at synthesizing processes that have not  previously been considered simultaneously.
  Abstracts for oral and poster presentations can be  submitted until the 1st of July 2010.

> Session on Genomics, developmental biology and systems biology
> during EURO ISRS symposium: Reefs in a changing environment
> 13-17 December 2010, Wageningen, The Netherlands

> Currently there are several ongoing whole genome projects for
> scleractinian corals, other cnidarians and their symbionts. It is
> expected that these advances will change coral reef science and will
> enhance our knowledge by providing new insights into processes 
> such as
> calcification and biomineralisation, signalling between host and
> symbiont, gene regulation and development, physiology etc. This new
> knowledge will also help to stimulate the use of systems biology 
> approachesin coral reef research enabling us to develop models 
> for understanding how
> the different layers of biological organisation (e.g. genome, gene
> regulation, cells, polyps, symbiont, colony) are linked. We 
> would like to
> invite researchers working on the genomics, developmental 
> biology and gene
> regulation of reef organisms, simulation models (from gene to 
> organism) and
> related topics to submit abstracts to this session. Please note 
> that the
