The Eighth Symposium on Harmful Algae in the U.S. will be held in Long Beach, California, November 15-19, 2015. This is the eighth in a series of biannual meetings intended to provide a forum for scientific exchange and technical communication on all aspects of HAB research in the United States.

Students, established HAB folks, managers and scientists from NGOs, academic institutions, and local, state and federal agencies are invited to join us in Long Beach.
The event will begin with a reception on Sunday evening, November 15th.
