from Extremes", to be held from November 11-13, 2019 at New York University

The purpose of this conference is to bring together leading regional and
international coral reef scientists to discuss recent research, and to open
opportunities for dialogue and collaboration among participants. The
geographic scope of this conference includes reefs in the Persian/Arabian
Gulf, the northwestern Indian Ocean (Arabian Sea, Sea of Oman), and the Red
Sea. This three day conference will include themed symposium sessions, each
opened by a keynote address from a renowned expert in the field. Themed
topics will include biogeography and evolution, coral community structure
and dynamics, reef fish community structure and dynamics, microbial
ecology, physiology, and biophysical processes, as well as a session on
reef conservation and management.

This conference is being supported by the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute, the
research wing of New York University Abu Dhabi. Decisions on acceptance
will be based on abstract quality and relevance to the conference topic and
geographic scope.
