About Cyamus

The Cyamus regional group encompasses the West Coast of North America and Hawaii; including Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, California, Baja California, and Hawaii. Members represent academic, governmental and private institutions concerned with the marine and aquatic environments.

Annual Meetings

Annual meetings are held in the spring, giving members the opportunity to visit relevant libraries and as a forum to exchange ideas between the annual IAMSLIC conferences. Past meeting notes and annual reports to IAMSLIC are available in the archive.

The 2014 Annual Meeting was held March 19-22, with hosting duties shared by the UC Davis Bodega Marine Laboratory in Bodega Bay and the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Visit the wiki for more information.

The 2013 Annual Meeting was held March 18-20 at the USC Wrigley Marine Science Center on Santa Catalina Island, California.
