Dear Marmam Folks,

I wanted to re-list this in order to encourage folks once again to submit student abstracts for the conference and to register for it beginning September 2nd.  We have a great line up of speakers and we are looking forward to having an informative and competitive poster session at our conference.  Please forward this along to your peers and students.  


Ewan Wolff


Good morning everyone


After the success of last years Marine Mammal Conference held here at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, we have decided to host the 2nd WEZAM Marine Mammal Conference this year on November 8th/9th 2008. The conference is being sponsored by ALOKA ultrasound systems and Morris Animal Foundation. This year the conference will consist of lectures/presentations on Saturday and Sunday morning, and two wet lab sessions (one for all delegates on Saturday detailing the use of ultrasound and demonstrating other clinical diagnostic methods and a second necropsy lab on Sunday afternoon with limited access). Most exciting is the addition of a poster session designed primarily for students undertaking summer externships in the field of marine mammal medicine or biology.


We are inviting submission of posters from the following areas of interest:

Marine mammal wildlife health

General zoological medicine for marine mammals

Marine mammal pathology

New technologies in marine mammal health

Literature review

A general submission relating to any other marine mammal topic


Delegates submitting abstracts must register for and be present at the conference. Registration for the conference will open during the first week of September and will be limited. The top five abstracts submitted will have registration reimbursed and will be guaranteed a place in the limited Sunday afternoon necropsy wet lab. The winning poster at the conference will be awarded an additional prize.


This is the ideal opportunity for students undertaking research during externships/internships to gain experience in presenting posters and demonstrate what can be achieved during such an opportunity.


Further questions or queries, or to request an electronic submission form, please contact Dr. Sophie Dennison at dennison <at> or Dr. Ewan Wolff at ewolff <at>


Thank you!
