As in past editions of the International Polychaete Conference, the course
"Cladistic and Polychaetes" will be offered to all interested attendants in
the edition that is going to be held in Madrid (5-9 July 2004) .
Since the home page of both, the course and the conference, is not available
yet in the Internet, I ask you to consider this an "informal announcement"
(although calls were made with the first and second announcement of the
Conference). Here, some information relative to the course is given but,
while the home page is under construction, I'd recommend the people interested
in the course to address any question directly to my e-mail count as logistic
coordinator of the course. As soon as you contact me, I will send an
electronic brochure with more data.
Program.- The course will be held just before the conference, starting on
Monday 21 of June and finishing on 4 of July. The majority of the classes will
be given by Arne Nygren (Göteborg University, Sweden), Fredrik Pleijel (Muséum
National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris), Greg Rouse (South Australian Museum)
and Kristian Fauchald (Smithsonian Institution). Details of the program will
be available in the home page and will be sent to interested people if
Location.- The course will be held at the Faculty of Science of the
Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. The university campus is located in the
countryside, about 10 km northwards from the outskirts of the town.
Transportation from Madrid downtown is easy by trains and buses operating from
5.30 a.m until the evening (last train from Madrid leaves about 23.00).
Registration fees.- The fee will cover just the registration for the course;
accomodation and meal costs are not included. It is stimated on 300 euros;
however, if we, the organizing commitee, get some additional fundings,
reductions of the registration fee or finantial support for student
accomodations are to be considered. The registration fees for the two events
(the conference and the course) will be paid as different items, probably in
different bank accounts.
Number of participants.- People interested in the course are encouraged to
contact as soon as possible the coordinator in order to be pre-registered.
There is a limitation to 20 participants and registration and pre-registration
order will be important in the selection of the participants.
Accommodation.- As for the conference, two kinds of accommodation are
available: hotels in the downtown and the cheaper residences for students
located around and within the campus. Details and prices will be also
available in the home page and participants are encouraged to express their
preferences as there are very few places in the residences. The organizing
commitee is still trying to arrange alternative accomodations in residences in
the downtown; if places were available it will be communicated to pre-
registered people directly or by this Annelida Net.The people lodged in the
campus can make their breakfasts and lunchs in the faculty, where they are
quite cheap (about 1 euro for the breakfast and 4 for the lunch). For dinner
(and during the weekends) the residence is provided with kitchens for the
