I would like to post the following announcement for those wishing to organize workshops for the upcoming SMM Biennial Marine Mammal Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in October 2017:

SMM 2017 Workshop Application Information
The Society will be hosting two days of workshops immediately following the biennial conference, on Saturday and Sunday 28-29 October, 2017. Around 28 workshops will be held at the Scotia Bank Centre, the official conference venue, unless otherwise stated. The number of rooms available is limited (with sizes to accommodate 35-150 participants - there are fewer larger rooms).
If you wish to propose/host a workshop see the FAQ and fill out the proposal form at https://www.xcdsystem.com/smm/abstract/index.cfm?ID=MtO03hP This form will ask you to provide a title, a summary of the workshop theme and relevance, estimated number of attendees, contact information for the proponent etc. Except in cases where unusual audiovisual equipment is requested, the full costs of these workshops will be covered by the registration fees paid by workshop attendees.
Please complete the online submission form by 29 March 2017!
Immediately after that date members of the SMM Committee will review and rank the submissions; proponents of the top-ranked 28 submissions will be notified of acceptance and given further instructions.
