The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sea Grant Program and the California Sea Grant College System invite you to participate in the Third International Conference on Marine Bioinvasions focused on the incidence, effects, and management of exotic species in coastal, estuarine, and marine ecosystems. The conference will feature papers in all areas related to marine bioinvasions for oral presentations and posters. The discovery of new marine introductions is becoming a frequent occurrence globally as are expressions of concern about the impacts of such invasions on marine and coastal ecosystems. You are invited to share your research and experiences with those striving to understand the ecological and economic patterns and impacts, to provide outreach and educational experiences, and to predict, detect, monitor, and manage invading species. Abstracts from all participants will be published in the conference program.

Although the conference will begin Monday morning, March 17, 2003, registration and optional field trips will take place on Sunday, March 16, for those who are arriving on the weekend. A reception is planned for Monday evening at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps. Those who are registered to attend the conference will receive admission to the reception, and their guests will be admitted for an additional fee. Oral presentations will continue throughout the day on Monday, March 17 through Wednesday, March 19, 2003. Posters will be on display throughout the conference with a special viewing session. Graduate student presentations are encouraged.
