Dear FWS members,
I am organizing the 2018 Benthic Ecology Meeting (BEM) in Corpus Christi, Texas, USA. The meeting will be held from 28-30 March 2018, with pre-conference workshops and field trips on 27 March 2018.
The annual BEM first began in 1972 when a small group of benthic ecologists began to meet informally. It has since grown to a large international gathering of 300-600 benthic ecologists. It is a lot of fun to get together with like-minded folks, and I extend a personal invitation to former NABS members to attend.
The meeting is reasonably priced because we have a special room rate of $101/night, which is very cheap by US standards. Corpus Christi (CRP) is served by only three airlines: American from Dallas (DFW), United from Houston (IAH), and Southwest from Houston (HOU).
Information about the BEM Society and links to meeting registration, abstracts submission, and meeting accommodations can be at the website http://www.bemsociety.org/ or go straight to the meeting page http://www.bemsociety.org/bem-2018.html
An early registration fee discount is available until January 14, 2018. Help us keep costs down by reserving rooms at the hotel by January 14, 2018.
We hope you will be able to join us in Corpus Christi for BEM 2018.
