Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce The Seventh International Sirenian Symposium
held in conjunction with the Biennial in San Francisco on Sunday, December
13th from 8:30-5:30. The purpose of this symposium is to foster
communication between Sirenian researchers, managers, and policy
makers.  Individuals are invited to present new information on Sirenian
conservation and management, stranding response and medical assessment,
monitoring applications, and general biology and research. The symposium
will include presentations, with time for questions and a poster session.
Sirenian items will be available for purchase to raise funds for future
travel grants.



Those interested in presenting should submit an abstract (300 word limit)
by email to Nicole Adimey (adimey22 at gmail.com) by August 15, 2015.
Preference will be given to speakers conducting research or addressing
conservation issues outside the United States of America.  The Symposium
schedule will include 20, 15 and 10 minute talks, so please indicate in
your abstract submission which time slot you prefer.



We encourage early registration, as this symposium has limited seating.
Due to generous contributions from our Sirenian conservation partners, *the
cost will be $20 USD *for those participants that register early.  After
Sept. 15, 2015 fees will increase to *$30 USD*.  To sign up for the
symposium, visit the conference registration site at:
https://www.marinemammalscience.org/conference/conference-registration/.



Small grants will be available for those individuals traveling from outside
the United States that *are not *already receiving financial assistance
from the Society for attendance at the Biennial.  Interested individuals
should contact Nicole Adimey (adimey22 at gmail.com) for more information.


Thank you,
Nicole
