Amplían los plazos de The deep-sea & Sub-seafloor Frontier Conference

Extended Deadline for abstract submission: January 13th, 2012
Important dates

On the 19th of December 150 abstracts covering a variety of topics have been received and a number of top-level keynote speakers are confirmed. Since the organization can still accommodate a few more participants, and in view of the ambition of the Conference and the attractive conditions that apply for hosting the participants, the Organizing Committee has approved a new and last extension of the abstract submission deadline.
