Dear MARMAM members,

On behalf of Guido J. Parra, Lars Bejder and Colin MacLeod  I'm glad to announce the following workshops to be held in July 2013 in Australia:

Workshop Announcement: An Introduction to Using GIS in Marine Mammal Research

Flinders University, Murdoch University and GIS in Ecology will be holding two introductory training workshops on using GIS for marine mammal research:

Workshop # 1:
Location: Adelaide, South Australia.
Dates: 15th - 19th of July, 2013
Venue: Stamford Grand Adelaide Hotel<http://www.stamford.com.au/sga>, Glenelg, South Australia

Workshop # 2:
Location: Fremantle, Western Australia.
Dates: 22nd - 26th of July, 2013
Venue: The Esplanade Hotel<http://www.esplanadehotelfremantle.com.au/>, Fremantle, Western Australia

The two workshops, funded by the Australian Marine Mammal Centre<http://www.marinemammals.gov.au/>, are planned to build expertise in the Australian marine mammal research community in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage, and present geographically referenced data related to marine mammal ecological studies.

The workshops are aimed at postgraduate students, academics and government agency representatives who are just starting to use GIS in their research or have little or no existing knowledge of this subject area. Participants will be selected by relevance to their research and priority will be given to those who are directly involved in marine mammal research and conservation in Australia.
There are no fees for attendance at the workshops. Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel to workshop venues and accommodation.
Applications close on 20th June 2013. Please send a one page overview of how this workshop would assist you in your current and future research activities focussed on marine mammals. Please note: the number of workshop participants will be limited to maximum 15-20 people. Successful applicants will be notified on 30th June 2013.

If you are interested in attending the workshop in Adelaide, South Australia (15th - 19th of July, 2013), please send your application to Dr. Guido J. Parra: guido.parra at flinders.edu.au<mailto:guido.parra at flinders.edu.au>
