Join the open sessions!

Open sessions provide you with a wider understanding of how ICES works and explore new ideas and initiatives.

These sessions often result in new proposals for working groups, workshops, or theme sessions for forthcoming ASCs. 

There are plenty of topics to choose from. Check out the line-up, and join the discussion!
