The 2008 Benthic Ecology Meeting's website is up and running (click on picture above). This year it is at Providence, Rhode Island and follows right after the National Shellfisheries Association Meeting. Two great meeting, one great town (so I've been told, never been further northeast than Philadelphia). Your truly plans on being there and presenting, and of course blogging the event. This is a fantastic meeting, especially for grad students. The atmosphere is relaxed and those marine ecologists whose paper's you read and admire? They are great, accessible and know how to have fun. Its definitely a meeting worth going to. I went in 2005 in Williamsburg, Virgina. Had a blast and met some amazing people!
IF going and need a room or roomie, let me know. I am always looking to reduce the costs of housing and don't mind sharing floorspace.
