Subject: XV Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals

 <tt>The Society for Marine Mammalogy is an international organization of 
 scientists dedicated to the study of marine mammals.  There are about 
 2000 members from over 20 countries worldwide.  The Society will be 
 hosting the XV Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals, 
 from 14-19 December in Greensboro, NC.  Please check the conference 
 website (<a  href=""; 
rel="nofollow"></a>) for the latest 
 information.  The deadline for early registration is 19 September 2003. 
  The least expensive way to register is early registration and we 
 encourage everyone to register as early as possible.  The deadline for 
 housing registration is 13 November 2003, and there is a form available 
 on the website for this.  Everyone is strongly encouraged to make their 
 hotel reservations as soon as possible to avoid last minute problems 
 with availability. Additionally, please remember that the dates are near 
 the holidays, and flights might be filled, so book your flight early. 
 Those coming a long distance and internationally should check for 
 flights into both Greensboro (16 km from the hotel) and Raleigh-Durham 
 (111 km from the hotel), because the prices of fares varies between 
 these two airports, and substantial savings might be had, enough to 
 cover the cost of ground transportation to the hotel and convention 
 center from the more distant airport.</tt><br>
 <tt>The United States has imposed stricter requirements for entry into the 
 country.  We encourage all international visitors from countries 
 requiring visas to begin the process of acquiring visas as soon as 
 possible, and no later than 3 months before the meeting.  Although the 
 U.S. State Department has instructed its overseas consular offices to 
 schedule students, professors, and researchers first for interviews, the 
 process is now taking several months.  After identifying that a visa is 
 needed, foreign travelers should contact the Embassy Consular Section in 
 their country to determine visa processing timeframes. Travelers should 
 contact the Consular Section via internet at 
 <a  href=""; 
rel="nofollow"></a> or call the Consular 
Section to hear 
 recorded information.  The National Academy of Science (USA) 
 International Visitors Office has established a web-resource 
 (<<a  href=""; 
rel="nofollow"></a>>) that includes 
 and internet links to federal agencies involved in the visa process.

 <tt>An icebreaker ticket is included in the registration fee.  Don't order 
 one unless you plan to bring a guest.  There are NO REFUNDS!  The 
 banquet is a separate ticket.  DO order one so you can join the fun. 
 The dance is open to any registered attendee.</tt><br>
 <tt>Students must provide proof of student status.  If you are using course 
 listings, etc., that were printed from the internet, make sure your NAME 
 is on it somewhere, or it will be rejected.  A photo ID is preferred. 
 Copy it "light" so it will fax legibly.<br>
 <tt>We invite interested individuals and organizations to exhibit at the 
 conference.  The exhibitor fee is $150.00 for nonprofit organizations 
 (i.e. public educational institutions, governmental agencies, and 501 3. 
 c. Corporations) and $300.00 for for-profit concerns.  Those registering 
 to exhibit prior to 19 September 2003 will receive a $50.00 discount. 
 This fee will procure one booth (approx. 10 x 10 feet) on the exhibit 
 floor (with one draped table and two chairs), two exhibitor badges, and 
 two tickets to the opening icebreaker reception at the Convention 
 Center.  Exhibitor badges will allow access to the exhibit hall and 
 poster area only, and will NOT allow access to conference sessions. 
 Exhibitors wishing to attend scientific sessions may purchase badges for 
 that purpose for an additional $50.00 each.  These badges will provide 
 access to a limited number of presentations.  Those wishing to attend 
 many sessions are encouraged to register for the full conference. 
 Nonprofit exhibitors wishing to attend scientific sessions will need to 
 register for the conference at the regular rate.</tt><br>
