ICES Annual Science Conference 2020

Theme session R

Scientific advances under ICES Science Plan

​​​​​​ICES Science Plan will advance and shape understanding of marine ecosystems, improve assessments of the effects of human activities, improve observations of the seas and oceans, and provide evidence and solutions to support conservation and management.  

The intent of this session is to allow broad dissemination of important new research in science areas that are not represented by other Annual Science Conference theme sessions. It also allows research from other scientific areas of interest to be presented at the Annual Science Conference, allowing for broader coverage and fostering the establishment of more multidisciplinary scientific work and links between scientists. 

This session is open to any contribution relevant to the seven priorities of ICES Science Plan:

  • ​Ecosystem science
  • Impacts of human activities
  • Observation and exploration
  • Emerging techniques and technologies
  • Seafood production
  • Conservation and management science
  • Sea and society​

Abstracts not relevant to any other session theme may be submitted to this session (direct submissions). In addition, we will consider abstracts rejected from other sessions on grounds of topic (indirect submissions). The session will be organized by topic, depending on contributions. Abstracts submitted to this session should have a broader context than just one species or one geographic location and should emphasise the relevance of the findings to the broader ICES community.
