The Proceedings from the Symposium will be published by Springer as a special volume of the journal Hydrobiologia. One copy of the volume will be distributed to each full-fee paying registered participant.
All oral and poster participants, except the 'OPEN' poster presenters, are invited to submit papers for inclusion in the volume.  Papers that have been published or are in submission will not be accepted for the Proceedings. All papers must be in English and will be subject to competitive peer review.  The final decision re publication will rest with the editor of Hydrobiologia. Papers (3 printed copies and a disc) must be submitted either during the conference, or by September 30, 2006 at the latest. [send to: EMBS41, Department of Zoology, Ecology & Plant Science, University College Cork, Distillery Fields, North Mall, Cork, Ireland]

The manuscript should include the title, name(s) of the author(s), address(es) of affiliation(s), up to six key words, and an abstract. You must also include  the following statement: "This paper has not been submitted elsewhere in identical or similar form, nor will it be during the first three months after its submission to Hydrobiologia". The manuscript should produce no more than 10 printed pages in the journal.

Names of plants and animals and occasional expressions in Latin or Greek should be typed in italics and when a species name is used for the first time in an article, it should be stated in full, and the name of its describer should also be given.
