Please join us in Green Bay for the 4th Biennial Lake 4THLake Michigan: State of the Lake Conference and the 5th Annual Great Lakes Beach Association Meeting. This is the second time the two groups have met jointly and promises to be another very successful meeting. The theme for this year's conference is Restoring Lake Michigan and Green Bay - Assessing What is Possible from Here. The conference brings together scientists, resource managers, planners, policy makers, officials, students, and citizens working to improve and protect Lake Michigan/Green Bay ecosystems and all Great Lakes beaches.

This is the first call for papers; our apologies for cross-postings. All interested persons are invited to submit abstracts for consideration. Both oral and poster presentations will require an abstract. Conference session topics and abstract submittal instructions may be found in the attached document and on the conference web site, http://www.aqua.wisc.edu/solm/

All abstracts must be received by July 22, 2005. Authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection by August 15, 2005. Authors of contributed papers and posters will be expected to cover all of their travel costs, as well as the conference registration fees.

The conference registration fee of $75 for two days ($50 for students) includes most meals, breaks and an evening poster reception. Sponsorships are being sought to further reduce student registration fees. The conference will be held at the new KI Convention Center adjacent to the Fox River in downtown Green Bay. The Center is connected to the Regency Suites (Green Bay's only all-suite hotel) and across the street from the Holiday Inn City Centre Hotel. Both hotels are offering exceptional room rates of $62/night for government or university employees. (The conference rate at the Regency Suites will be $92 for non-government attendees).
