Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The 34th annual conference of the European Association of Aquatic Mammals
(EAAM) is scheduled from 17th until 20th of March 2005. Oltremare will host
the conference on its premises in Riccione, Italy.

The EAAM is an organization of people interested in marine mammals in human
care, in a zoological environment or in the wild, and includes
veterinarians, biologists, zoo and marine park directors and managers,
trainers (husbandry professionals), researchers, students and other persons
who devote a significant amount of time to the welfare of marine mammals
through research, medical care, training, education, conservation,
management and related activities.

During the conference you can present the results of your work with marine
mammals during a fifteen minute presentation or by a poster presentation.
All topics related to marine mammal science and husbandry will be
acceptable: conservation, education, medicine, practical aspects of
husbandry, et cetera. However, for the 34th Symposium, EAAM specially
encourages presentations that highlight the benefits science has from the
possibility to research marine mammal populations under human care. The
deadline for abstract submission is the 23rd of December 2005. An electronic
abstract submission form is available on the conference website.

Details on the conference program, the location,  the workshop, guest
speakers (Dr Sam Ridgway, Dr Joseph Geraci and Professor Guido Dehnhard),
hotel reservations, registration and transportation are available on the
conference website http://www.parcoltremare.it/commonfiles/eaam/eaam.php .
