This CD-ROM contains most of the ICES Council Meeting
(CM) Documents relating to the ICES Annual Science Conference (ASC) and
ICES Statutory Meeting held in September/October of a given year. It
includes reports of ICES Committees and Working Groups as well as
scientific papers presented at the ASC.
The CM Documents for each year are issued as CD-ROMS in two versions.
The first, an "ASC edition", is produced for limited
distribution to registered participants attending the relevant ASC or
Statutory Meeting. The second version contains all the CM Documents that
have been approved for release after the meetings and is as complete a
set as can be compiled by the spring of the following year when it is
issued. This version also contains the ICES Annual Report for the year
in question. Copies of the final version may be obtained by applying to
the ICES Secretariat.
