ICES Annual Science Conference 2019

Early career scientists

A number of events organized especially for early career scientists will take place at the ASC in Gothenburg.

​​​​​​​​​​​ICES considers an early career scientist to be someone who is either no more than 35 years OR has completed a PhD in the last 5 years​.

COMPASS workshop: Communicating your science

Sunday 8 September 

Gothenburg School of Economics, Vasagatan 1, Room C33

​This COMPASS science communication training will help participants share what they do, what they know - and most importantly - why it matters, in clear, lively terms. Grounded in the latest research on science communication, this training is designed to help participants find the relevance of their science for the audiences they most want to reach — journalists, policymakers, the public, and even other scientists.

In this hands on, skill-building workshop, participants will be introduced to The Message Box - COMPASS' most fundamental tool no matter who you are preparing to communicate with. Through a combination of lecture and interactive exercises we will explore some of the core concepts of good science communication including identifying, distilling and framing your messages so they are relevant to your audiences and recognizing and refining the use of technical jargon.

Interested participants ​​​ar​e encouraged to register as soon as possible.

This event is co-hosted by the Centre for Sea and Society, School of Business, Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg​​

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 of the research presented. They don't need 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.

Applications for travel funds has now closed.
