Beginning immediately following the Conference on Biology of Marine 
Mammals (3 December), The University of St. Andrews is happy to announce 
that we will be delivering an Introduction to Distance Sampling workshop 
in Tampa Florida.  We have not presented a workshop in North America 
since 2009, and we haven't delivered a workshop in eastern North America 
since 2005.  If you happen to be attending the Marine Mammal Conference, 
you can attend this workshop immediately thereafter.

The workshop will last four days (3-6 Dec.) and will cover introductory 
topics in distance sampling.  Instructors will include Prof. Steve 
Buckland and Dr. Len Thomas, as well as several other lecturers and 
demonstrators from the University of St. Andrews.

We are in the process of finalising the arrangements with the hotel 
where we will conduct the workshop, so we are not yet accepting 
registration for the workshop.  However, we expect this workshop to fill 
quickly (limit of 35 participants), so our early registration deadline 
is 31 August.  We expect official registration to open before the end of 
July; but get in contact with us at the web address below ahead of that 
with questions and expressions of interest.

Please visit the workshop website to learn more details as well as send 
an expression of interest:
