Benthic Ecology Meeting 2006

Location: Québec (Canada)
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2006-03-08    
End Date: 2006-03-12

Event Description:
Here are updates on the 2006 Benthic Ecology Meeting, set for March 8-12
in Quebec City:

1. Abstract submission deadline extended to January 21.

2. Deadline for the hotel’s special rates extended to January 22.

3. Special sessions planned on Arctic Benthic Systems and Aquaculture &
the Environment as well as a tribute session for Edwin Bourget.

Early registration by February 3
You can both register for the meeting and book accommodations on-line. Directions for submitting abstracts by e-mail are also given.

Some important details:

1. Air Canada is offering a discount to conference attendees (see “Transportation” link).
2. Rooms rates offer up to quadruple occupancy for the same price ($115 CAD/night).
3. Special accommodation rate for students - $25 CAD/night (see “Your Stay” link).
N.B. All prices are in Canadian dollars.

Hotel info: We encourage you to stay at the beautiful Hotel Loews le Concorde, the conference hotel and venue, which is located just outside the fortified walls and offers a superb base for exploring the city. A block of rooms has been reserved at a conference rate, but the number is limited. Thus we ask you to book as early as possible in order that we can negotiate for additional rooms and services (you can always cancel your reservation later if you change your mind). For more general information:

Fun time: Our program is planned to allow Friday afternoon and evening free to explore the city and surrounding region. The city offers an abundance of museums, restaurants, clubs, galleries and shops in an old world atmosphere. Nearby there are three downhill ski resorts (20-40 minutes away), but for cross-country skiing, you can just cross street to the 270 acre Battlefield Park. So much to do -- why not come a day early or stay a day late!?! For more general information:

We are looking forward to having an interesting and exciting meeting and hope that you will be able to join us. If you have specific questions, feel free to contact us at any time.
