DIALOG is an educational and human resource program. It targets aquatic scientists and those in related disciplines that have recently obtained their Ph.D. degrees and wish to pursue interdisciplinary aquatic science research. DIALOG consists of three parts. Ph.D. Dissertation registry Recent Ph.D. recipients are invited to submit an abstract of their Ph.D. dissertation research for inclusion in the DIALOG Dissertation Registry. Database Demographic information is collected with the dissertation abstracts in order to characterize recent graduates for human-resource purposes.

The third DIALOG symposium was held October 17-24, 1999. Graduates who completed their Ph.D. between April 1, 1997 and March 31, 1999 were eligible.
