Time to think of the seventh symposium! It will be held on the campus of the University of Maine at Presque Isle during the 18th to 22nd August 1997. You are invited to present a paper on your research in either oral or poster format, or attend and contribute to discussions on oligochaetology. The major topics of the papers in the symposium will include morphology, systematics, evolution, biogeography, ecology, pollution biology, parasite interactions, and physiology of oligochaetes. Contributions on leech phylogeny and systematics are also welcome. Please share this invitation with your colleagues.
The University of Maine at Presque Isle is one of the smaller campuses in the State University System. Most of the buildings are new and convenient to the adjacent city. Presque Isle is located in northern Maine with the Northern Maine Regional airport located only 3km from the campus. Most flights fly directly the 650km from Presque Isle into the Boston International airport. Presque Isle is situated on US Route 1, 65km north of the end of Interstate 95, and 30km west of the TransCanada Highway as it passes through Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, Canada.
Accommodation, meals and scientific sessions will be held on the campus. The accommodation is in high standard student dormitories, with two people sharing a room. Single person rooms are available at a slightly higher price. If more expensive motel accommodation is desired, this can be booked at one of two motels within 300m of the campus. Tentative prices will be a registration fee of $100US (maximum) and about $40US per day for food and dormitory accommodation. Accurate prices will be given in the Second Announcement.
Please return your tentative registration form BEFORE 1 September 1996. If you wish to make an oral or a poster presentation please indicate which on the attached form. When, and how long your oral presentation will be, will be announced later. In order to keep the mailing cost as low as possible, only tentatively registered colleagues will be sent the Second Announcement.
Please complete the enclosed form and mail it to:Dr. S.R. Gelder <GELDER@polaris.umpi.maine.edu>
I look forward to seeing you in 1997!
