Members of this group may be interested to hear of the 9th Deep sea 
Biology Symposium which will be held in Galway Ireland on 25-30th June 
2000. These symposia are only held every three years and provide an 
ideal opportunity for those with interests in this area to meet their 

The theme for the symposium is "The Deep Ocean Biosphere - Change 
and Sustainability" and it is hoped to feature keynote speakers to 
address aspects of this topic.  As with previous symposia, however, 
papers and posters on any aspect of deep-sea organisms (from macro to 
micro) and ecosystems will be welcome.  Please remember that " deep-
sea" is not only the abyssal benthos but also deep waters and the deep 
sub-seafloor biosphere.  Interdisciplinary papers are particularly 

I am sure that those of you who have attended previous symposia will 
agree with me that some of the most interesting ideas have arisen outside 
the formal sessions. It is my intention to allow time for this, even if it 
proves necessary to limit the number of oral presentations. There will, of 
course be the traditional programme of social events including an 
excursion, and a banquet with plenty of local food and drink  

It is intended that information om the symposium will be promulgated 
mainly by electronic means.  If you wish to be on the symposium Email 
list please contact john.patching at nuigalway.ie (Note: do NOT contact 
this discussion group). If you have colleagues who are interested in the 
symposium, but  do not have access to Email or the internet, please 
advise them to write to me. The symposium website is at 
(http://marinemicro.ucg.ie/deepsea.html), and will be updated 
periodically.  Those on the symposium Email list will be sent registration 
details and notified when the website is updated.
