Science symposia

Symposia co-sponsorship

Proposals for stimulating symposia on topics that are fundamental to ICES Strategic Plan are always welcome.

​​​​​​​​​​​ICES receives requests to host or sponsor symposia both from within our own community as well as from other organisations.

Making a request

A request for ICES sponsorship must be made at least one year in advance of the event and must be made using the draft resolution template. Requests may be directed towards ICES Secretariat or the Head of ICES Science Programme and should include a draft budget. The deadlines are: 1 March and 1 September.

ICES sponsorship implies one or more of the following

  • Endorsement by ICES of the objectives and scientific excellence of the planned symposium

  • Financial assistance

  • An opportunity to publish symposium proceedings in the ICES Journal of Marine Science


  • The topic addresses ICES science or advisory priorities

  • The theme should be in-line with the ICES Strategic and  Science plans​

  • High quality scientific outcomes expected

  • Well established scientific credibility of the conveners

  • Sufficient time and space prior to the event to accommodate ICES, especially the inclusion of ICES scientists on the Scientific Steering Committee

  • A sound financial basis is expected

  • ICES sponsorship is of mutual importance for ICES and for the requesting partner

The final decision to co-sponsor a science symposium is made by SCICOM.
