Hello all,

Just a reminder that abstracts for submission to the one-day workshop on Science and Conservation of Hawaiian Odontocetes are due September 7, 2011. The workshop will be held on Saturday November 26, 2011 in Tampa, Florida, prior to the Society for Marine Mammalogy 19th Biennial Conference. Abstracts should be submitted to rwbaird at cascadiaresearch.org<mailto:rwbaird at cascadiaresearch.org> and Erin.Oleson at noaa.gov<mailto:Erin.Oleson at noaa.gov>

Abstracts should be 400 words (note change from earlier notice), with the format following the conference abstract guidelines. Please note your preference for a talk or poster, whether the abstract will also be presented at the SMM and in which format (talk or poster). If you have a poster presentation accepted for the SMM it can also be presented at this workshop, although depending on the number of abstracts submitted, talks to be presented at the SMM should not be presented at the workshop. Individuals can submit more than one abstract to the workshop.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scientists, managers and other interested parties involved with odontocete research, conservation and management efforts in Hawaiian waters to discuss current findings, planned research, and management strategies. Although focused geographically on Hawai'i, this workshop will be relevant to researchers and managers working in other island ecosystems and to those studying tropical odontocetes throughout the world.

Pre-registration can be done through the SMM website at

There will be a registration fee to cover coffee breaks and a continental breakfast although the exact fee has not yet been determined.

This workshop is co-organized by Robin Baird of Cascadia Research Collective and Erin Oleson of the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center.
