Join us for a day of presentations by researchers studying the extraordinary marine life, oceanography and geology of the central San Francisco Bay, Gulf of the Farallones, Bodega Bay and Cordell Bank regions and adjacent waters between Point Arena and Point Año. The event will be from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and will include morning refreshments, lunch and an early evening reception and poster session. Presentations will focus on new, on-going and recently completed research, monitoring and habitat characterization projects. Presentations will be brief project summaries (8 minutes or less). We have scheduled long breaks so that participants have the opportunity to meet with presenters and to network with colleagues, resource managers, and decision makers.
PLEASE NOTE: You do not need to present a project to attend.
Registration is open to everyone and costs $25 (to cover lunch and refreshments)
Space is limited so please register soon!
There will not be hardcopy proceedings. Registrants should download a PDF copy of the proceedings prior to the Symposium, available online after 6:00 PM on November 21.
