For thirty-eight years, professionals and students who study algae (freshwater or marine), seagrasses, or other marine plants have gathered together from all over the southeastern United States (and beyond), to share their research activities and ideas. This meeting is open to anyone interested; student contributions are especially encouraged. Contributed paper and poster sessions are planned for the full day of Saturday, November 5, 2016.
A registration fee of $40 for students and $70 for other participants will cover the cost of the meeting. Payment includes a Friday night social and lunch, dinner, and coffee breaks on Saturday. Tickets for Saturday's dinner can be purchased separately for accompanying (unregistered) spouses or guests.
