ICES Annual Science Conference 2015

SCICOM Open Sessions

Shape the future path of ICES science
​ICES Science Committee (SCICOM) invites you to the Open Sessions Monday 21 and Wednesday 23 September.

SCICOM, along with its Steering Groups and Strategic Initiatives, handpicks exciting and challenging topics for the annual Open Sessions.
These sessions provide you with a wider understanding of how both ICES and SCICOM work through informing participants how ICES science is developed into advice.

The Open Sessions often result in new proposals for working groups, workshops, or theme sessions for forthcoming ASCs. But more importantly, as the scientific discussions take off, the sessions are always directed towards landing in practical solutions. 

The first instalment of SCICOM's Open Sessions takes place directly after the SCICOM and ACOM Open Plenary, hosted by SCICOM Chair Yvonne Walther and ACOM Chair Eskild Kirkegaard at 09:00 on M​onday 21 September​.

The second part takes place at 15:00 on Wednesday 23 September. 
All ASC attendees are welcome and encouraged to attend.​​​
