ICES Annual Science Conference 2021

ASC 2021

6-9 September 2021
Øksnehallen, Copenhagen, Denmark

​​​​​​​​Because of the global COVID-19 crisis, the ICES Annual Science Conference (ASC) 2020 has been postponed to 2021. 

We will transfer all the hard work put into the theme sessions, and abstracts, to 2021. Notifications of abstract acceptance were sent in June 2020. 

​There will be facilities to update abstracts before the ASC 2021. Exactly how and when this will happen will be communicated when we have the details in place.

This is an unprecedented situation for all of us, and we thank you for your patience and understanding in this process. 

Further details will follow soon.
