Sponsors

We are looking forward to an exciting conference this year. Hosted by the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, we will be meeting on the campus of the Institute. As such, the conference theme will revolve around Living on the Edges of marine and aquatic information management, ecology and disaster planning.

We expect librarians and information managers from key aquatic and marine research organizations and universities around the world. Sponsoring the conference is an excellent way to reach these attendees and promote your products. Our program will include scheduled time to visit the exhibits, which will be located adjacent to the main meeting room. In addition, the intimate size of our meeting provides ample opportunities to speak informally with attendees.
