Hi all

The long-awaited schedule of events for the WBC, Orlando '12, has been drafted. It is still not officially posted but it's time the speaker list and proposed schedule were aired. We international visitors need much time to plan and make bookings! Hotel and rego info can be found on the BSI website - No doubt Evan will have more on this event in the next journal or 2. It looks like a 'shindig' of a week too!

Please note that there will be no planned pre or post conference habitat tours.

Hope to see some of you there!

Cheers, Pedro
