Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation's biennial conference is this year in Daytona Beach. http://www.sgmeet.com/cerf2011/
Submit an abstract for the session I'm co-chairing with John King:
SCI-054 Marine Habitat Mapping and Assessment
This session will focus on studies that identify and classify marine habitats. Studies that link seafloor or water column features to specific organisms or life stages are encouraged. Papers describing biological communities associated with various seafloor or water column features or published classification schemes (e.g., CMECS, UK Seamap) are also encouraged.
