Theme session conveners have been busy deciding on presentations for the upcoming ASC. Participants can look forward to more than oral presentations and 100 poster presentations in Gothenburg. The theme and network session programme is now available. Detailed theme session schedules will become available in the coming weeks.
In addition to the science sessions, there are many more events that will keep particpants busy in Gothenburg.
Each year, ICES puts a programme in place for early career scientists, especially aimed at those attending the ASC for the first time. All early career scientists that have been accepted to present at the ASC are encouraged to apply for travel funding.
COMPASS will host a science communication workshop that will help participants share what they do, what they know - and most importantly - why it matters, in clear, lively terms. This workshop will take place on Sunday 8 September, the day before the conference begins.
These events have limited capacity, early registration is advised.
Visit RV Svea, the new reseach vessel of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) on Monday morning.
