ICES Annual Science Conference 2017


This year's ASC takes place at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Country Convention Center in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


The Greater Ft. Lauderdale / Broward County Convention Center is located on the city's waterfront. It is a five-minute drive from the airport, within walking distance of many local hotels, and less than one mile from Fort Lauderdale's famed Blue Wave beaches.


Several hotels in the area offer special rates for ASC participants. Book your hotel room via the Greater Fort Lauderdale Housing Bureau, the official housing company for #ICESASC17.


The Greater Fort Lauderdale area offers great opportunities for exploring what Florida has to offer. Take a break from the busy conference schedule at one of the nearby beaches, or take the opportunity to explore the area's natural wonders at parks and nature centers. There are plenty of sunny options to choose from - let's go!
