The purpose of the annual meeting is to cultivate community among students
studying marine mammals by creating a relaxed atmosphere to share research
ideas, tribulations, and triumphs. It is an opportunity to meet
other students across the region, collaborate, and generally have a good
time in a supportive and informal setting.

*Schedule:*
Saturday May 21st will involve a full day of student oral and poster
presentations, followed by a group dinner. On Sunday May 22nd we will be
offering a FREE behind the scenes tour of the marine mammal collection at
the Burke Museum <http://www.burkemuseum.org/> on the UW campus.

like to be considered for accommodations and contact us if you have any
questions. Even if you are not presenting, we suggest registering by this
Friday - housing requests will be accepted until Friday *April 22nd*.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
