ICES Annual Science Conference 2022

Early career scientists

We welcome early career scientists to ICES ASC 2022!

​​​A special programme will be on offer for all early career scientists in Dublin. 

ICES: What? Who? How? Why?                  

Monday 19 September

08:00–09:15 O'Connell Room

Many early career scientists, especially those attending the ASC for the first time, have a lot of questions about how to become a member of our community and why!

Jörn Schmidt, ICES Science Committee (SCICOM) Chair and Mark Dickey-Collas, ICES Advisory Committee (ACOM) Chair, introduce this breakfast event for early career scientists to start the week.

Kick off your ASC with a good breakfast while getting to know some of the key people within the organization, who will be there to answer all of your questions.

Registration is now closed for this event.

ASC mentor programme

Are you attending  ASC for the first time? Our mentors can help you to get to know ICES and the people in our network.

What does the mentor programme offer?

  • A personal introduction to the workings of ICES as an organization
  • A discussion group with your peers about the work being presented at the ASC
  • An excellent networking opportunity as you are introduced to various new colleagues and find out how you can become more involved in the work of ICES

Network session: Connecting ICES expert groups to early career scientists

Monday 19 September

Join this interactive, fun, social​ session.
Get to know various ICES expert groups and connect with other early career scientists at ICES.​​

This network session aims to connect ECS with a wide variety of EG representatives. The session will provide an opportunity for EGs to showcase their work and recruit ECS to their group. In turn, ECS will get an overview of various EGs, ask questions to the EG representatives, and have the opportunity to join EGs of interest. Through the interactive session, ECS will also be able to connect with one another, enabling a rich information flow between different ICES EGs, which will be further facilitated by SIIECS beyond ASC 2022​.​​

ICES Journal of Marine Science Editor-in-chief

Tuesday 20 September

Come along and find out everything you always wanted to know about getting published. Howard Browman, Editor-in-Chief of our journal, ICES Journal of Marine Science, is in the hot seat to answer all your questions.

Want to dip your toes in editing?
You can also use this session to learn more about ICES Journal's mentorship programme .

Early career scientist awards

Three early career scientist awards will be presented at the conference (two for oral presentations and one for poster presentation). These awards will emphasize the quality of the presentations and not the career achievements of the early career scientists.

The awardee is the first author and major contributor to the research presented. They don't need to be first-time presenters at an ASC, however, they should not have received a previous early career scientist award from ICES.

The prizes consist of certificates and €1,000 vouchers to be used to cover participation costs in an ICES training course, expert group meeting, symposium, or workshop, but not the ASC. The voucher must be redeemed within 24 months of the award.​​​​​
