Dear MARMAM Readers,

SMM BIENNIAL WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT: "SOCPROG and the analysis of animal social
structure using individual identifications"

When: Sunday, 11 December 2005, afternoon session
Where: Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego (conference venue)

Summary: The computer program SOCPROG is used by marine mammalogists, and
others, to examine social structure, usually using data from
photo-identifications. However, analyzing social structure and using SOCPROG
are not straightforward. The workshop plans to provide guidance in these
matters, using onscreen real-time analyses of real data. Participants do not
need to have experience in using SOCPROG (although this will help).

There is the possibility that those with their own data sets who are registered
for the workshop may be able to arrange a brief meeting with Hal during his
free time while he?s at the conference to discuss their concerns and go over
their own analyses. Please email me if you would be interested in a separate
meeting with Hal. The length of time for these meetings will depend on the
number of people who are interested. We will update those who register on this
if we can arrange the time in Hal?s schedule.

Chair: Hal Whitehead
