8th International Nannoplankton Association Conference
This year's 8th International Nannoplankton Association Conference will be held at the University of Bremen in the Department of Geosciences, from September 11 - 15, 2000. The conference offers you the opportunity to present the results of your studies on all aspects of nannoplankton research, including both palaeonto-logical and biological aspects, to an international audience.This meeting includes scientific sessions (talks and posters), pre- and post-field-trips, and workshops.

All speakers will be allocated 15 minutes for their oral presentation, to be followed by 5 minutes for discussion.The lecture hall is equipped with two slide and two overhead projectors. Video projection (VHS: PAL, NTSC, SECAM) is possible. The video projection can also be used as computer monitor (RGB-, VGA-interface). If you need anything special, please contact us. The posters will be displayed in an area close to the lecture halls and to the coffee rooms. Two poster sessions are scheduled for discussion of the posters.
The size of the poster walls is 90 cm x 125 cm (125cm x 90 cm). During the conference you will have access to computers (e-mail), fax machine, and telephone.
Two workshops will take place on Friday, Sept. 15, 2000. At the moment, both workshops overlap with respect to time. If it turns out that several people want to participate in both workshops, we will think about a different time arrangement during the conference.Additional spontaneous workshops are also possible. 3.3.1. Workshop on calcareous dinoflagellates (Karin Zonneveld et al.):
Travel from Bremen airport to hotel and youth hostel:
Registration and payment will be possible on Sunday, Sept. 10 (19:00 - 21:00 h) and on Monday, Sept. 11 (8:30 - 9:00 h) in the entrance hall of the Geoscience building (GEO II).
The Icebreaker Party will take place on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 19:00 h in the entrance hall of the Geoscience building (GEO II). Drinks and finger food will hopefully contribute to a good warm up party!
Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 13) can be used for a guided city tour, a visit to BECK┤s Brewery or spare time. Costs for the city tour will be 6 DEM, for the visit of the Beck┤s brewery 5 DEM.
At 18:00 h the participants of INA 8 are invited to a reception by the mayor of the city of Bremen (Dr. Henning Scherf) in the historical city hall. Later on, at 19:30h the Conference Dinner is arranged in the restaurant "Friesenhof" (Hinter dem Schütting 12/13, city map no. 5).
The campus of Bremen university offers a variety of possibilities for having breakfast and lunch:
For each location see campus map.
If you arrive after 19 h at the Hotel Ibis, please inform the hotel in advance!Participants, who have not booked a room at the hotel or youth hostel in advance might get problems to find a room short-dated. Private accommodation is already full. Another possibility is to stay at the camping site adjacent to Bremen university. If you like to do this, you will have to contact the camping site: Campingplatz, Hochschulring 1, 28359 Bremen, phone: +49/421/212002. But do not forget to bring a sleeping bag and tent with you!If you arrive after 19 h at the Hotel Ibis, please inform the hotel in advance!
The Conference Proceedings will be published in a special issue of the "Courier Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg". Manuscripts shall be of 30 pages maximum (incl. figures and tables), to be submitted by December 15, 2000.
