96th Annual Meeting
November 5-8, 2015
This year's annual WSN meeting will be held November 5th-8th, 2015 at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Sacramento, CA. Our local host will be the California Ocean Science Trust. We plan to take advantage of the Sacramento location to highlight our theme of Science Informing Marine Policy for this year's meeting. A combination of workshops, symposia, and a plenary talk will address the role of science in marine management and policy, including challenges and innovative approaches. There will also be several sessions of contributed talks dedicated to science related to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), which will be a timely topic in light of activities surrounding California's MPA monitoring programs in 2015.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. Early registration and abstract submission will open in August 2015
