Special Note: Limnology and Oceanography, ASLO’s premier aquatic journal, celebrates 50 years of publication in 2005!

Organizers of the ASLO 2005 Aquatic Sciences Meeting have designed this meeting to be interactive and to encourage discussion of new and cutting-edge research and applications in the aquatic environment. We invite you to participate through submissions to oral or poster sessions as well as to actively exchange ideas and information as a registered participant. We hope you will leave this meeting with a broader understanding of current research directions and concepts in aquatic sciences and make contact with new colleagues as you participate in this interactive process.

Following the trend at recent ASLO meetings, increasing emphasis is being placed on poster sessions with the overall goal of reducing the number of concurrent oral sessions and giving greater exposure to presenters at all sessions. We especially encourage the submission of poster presentations as a very effective means of facilitating discussion of research. Poster sessions will be scheduled at times when there are no conflicts from oral sessions or scheduled special workshops, field trips, or town meetings. The poster sessions include receptions to provide opportunities to make professional connections in a social setting.

The Sunday Opening session by ASLO President, Jon Cole, Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will be followed by a welcome mixer reception. Plenary lectures will be held Monday through Friday. Poster and oral sessions will be held throughout the meeting. Daily conference events will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Please make plans to join us in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games!
