First Announcement

The 16th Annual Southeast and Mid-Atlantic Marine Mammal Symposium 
(SEAMAMMS) will be held March 28-30, 2008 in Charleston, South Carolina. 
This symposium provides an opportunity for researchers and students 
(both graduate and undergraduate) to present their latest findings, 
network and build collaborations with other marine mammal researchers in 
the Southeast United States.

SEAMAMMS 2008 is being co-hosted by partners at the Hollings Marine 
Laboratory (HML), including the Medical University of South Carolina, 
NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and the National 
Institute of Standards and Technology, and NOAA Fisheries Office of 
Protected Resources (OPR). To build on the partnership with HML and OPR, 
this year we will have a keynote speaker and expert panel to discuss 
conservation medicine and its applications to marine mammal research and 
management. However, presentations need not focus on health research; a 
broad range of marine mammal research disciplines will be represented. 
Along with the panel discussion, the scientific program will consist of 
oral presentations and a poster sesssion. There will be an icebreaker 
reception on Friday night, followed by presentations all day Saturday 
and Sunday morning. A dinner cruise of scenic Charleston Harbor is 
planned for Saturday evening

The deadline to submit an abstract is February 1, 2008. More details can 
be found on the SEAMAMMS website:
