> WDA conference, with research talks and group discussions on 27 and 28 July
> (Saturday and Sunday). There also will be a poster presentation and social
> on the evening of 27 July, and optional ranavirus surveillance field trips
> on 29 and 31 July. The bulk of WDA conference activities will occur 29 July

> is at: http://fwf.ag.utk.edu/WDA2013/default.html.
> The symposium presentation committee (Brunner, Duffus, Miller, Marschang,

> with 2-3 descriptive sentences of presentation topics for consideration in
> the symposium. Please specify if you prefer an oral or poster presentation,
> and indicate if you are a student, research associate (including post-doc),
> scientist, or veterinarian. The committee$B!G(Bs goal will be to create a

> fish and reptiles) with a global representation of presenters with different
> training and expertise. Titles should be submitted to
> [log in to unmask] by 30 November 2012. The presentation

> submitted separately for inclusion in a WDA Conference session. The call
> for WDA abstracts likely will be released in January. Please feel free to
> distribute this announcement to others.

> Tennessee River Valley with the southern Appalachian Mountains as a backdrop
> for the city (http://www.knoxville.org/). The Great Smoky Mountains
> National Park (http://www.nps.gov/grsm/) is less than one hour from
> Knoxville, and there are loads of opportunities for outdoor activities
> (e.g., hiking, camping, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, canoeing). The
> cities of Pigeon Forge (http://www.mypigeonforge.com/) and Gatlinburg
> (http://www.gatlinburg.com/) are short drives, Nashville is about 2.5 hours
> (http://www.visitmusiccity.com/), and Atlanta is 3 hours
> (http://www.atlanta.net/). Knoxville has a moderately size airport with
> connector flights to major USA hubs (e.g., Atlanta, Houston, Washington DC,
> Chicago; http://www.tys.org/). Knoxville also is the home of The University
> of Tennessee (http://www.utk.edu/), which brings an energizing VOLUNTEER
> spirit to the city of 300,000 people. Whether presenting or not, we hope to
> see you at the Second International Symposium on Ranaviruses!
