1st NCORE Coral Reef Research Forum
[Event Announcement] [Agenda] [Abstracts]

February 19, 2005

SLAB Seminar Room
University of Miami ─ Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Science
Rickenbacker Causeway, Key Biscayne, FL 33149


This message is to reiterate that we will be having an NCORE Research Forum on February 19th to highlight and share with each other our coral reef related research.  This will serve as a "get to know each other" event for the UM coral reef community and should be looked at as the first step in developing collaborative research opportunities.  This follows from the recognition that the talent pool for reef studies at UM is tremendous (the largest on the continent), but would benefit from more synergism within the community.  We hope that this forum will allow an assessment of our strengths and the chance for the future development of interdisciplinary proposals. The "community" includes anyone, from any division, with research having coral reef related implications. 

DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY to learn, educate and participate.  It is up to you to make your voice heard by submitting your abstract and presenting your work.

ABSTRACT DEADLINE EXTENDED! Please send abstracts (single page, 12 pt Times Roman Font) by 5PM Thursday Feb. 10 to Benita Chin ([email protected]).


Based on the submissions, we have decided to group the talks into panels of speakers, each speaker having a 10 minute presentation. Each panel session will be followed by a 20 minute discussion focused more on future opportunities than on questions of methodology and interpretation. This format will allow us to include an optimal number of speakers and still address the need for developing synergy. 


For the meeting to be successful, all of us need to read the abstracts closely and if necessary, to contact authors for answers to specific questions about their abstract. Coming with this advanced preparation is key to the success of the Forum. This first-ever meeting of RSMAS reef researchers is a special opportunity. Please carefully prepare your own presentation and critically read all the abstracts.

All those who plan to use power point are reminded that they must limit the number of images to a maximum of ten and preferably fewer.
