First Call for Papers

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 43rd Annual Conference
of the International Association of Great Lakes Research (IAGLR). The
conference, hosted by the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental
Sciences (SLRIES) in partnership with the University of Ottawa and the
Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, will be held at the NavCanada Conference
Center, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada from May 21 to 26th, 2000.

Dr. David Lean, Department of Biology, University of Ottawa is pleased to
be the Conference Site Chair of  IAGLR 2000 conference  Great Lakes; Great
Rivers 2000 - A vision for tomorrow. The conference is designed to
integrate disciplines and to focus on the future health of Great Lakes and
the St. Lawrence River Ecosystems for the next century.

This is the first call for papers for the 43rd Annual International
Conference and all are invited to participate.  We have organized the
conference with Special Session topics (33 Special Sessions to date),
however the final arrangement and number of session topics will depend on
the abstracts received.

All scientific oral presentations have been planned for Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday until noon.  Oral and Poster presentations do require
you to have an abstract. Abstracts may be submitted for a special session
or as a general contribution. If you are uncertain about the most suitable
placement of your paper, please contact the special session chairs. Contact
information will be available on the iaglr website. Some open sessions may
be arranged, but this will depend on the abstracts received and the space
available. Please note that presentations by platform presenters will be
limited to 15 minutes, followed by a 5 minute question/discussion period.
Abstracts are limited to a maximum of 200 words.  PLEASE WRITE YOUR
ABSTRACT FOR A GENERAL AUDIENCE. (i.e., as much as possible, try to make
your abstract readable for people outside your field) YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE
FOR ALL GRAMMATICAL ERRORS.   Abstract are due by December 15, 1999.
