THEMES

SCIENCE FROM A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE

Whether you are digging up old data, comparing historical to present-day conditions, or have a special interest in the historyof marine science, feel free to come and share your views with us.

SCIENCE IN A MODERN ERA

Topics in this session will be focused on science done through or with the help of e-infrastructures (LifeWatch, EMBRC …), innovative techniques and high-tech equipment such as e.g. sensors or GPS-tracking and receiver networks.

CITIZEN SCIENCE

Not only scientists do science … More and more, untrained people assist professionals in collecting information and data, with remarkable results. This session is open to topics that deal with various aspects of citizen science.

SCIENCE IN THE NORTH SEA

2018 has been declared as ‘the Year of the North Sea’ by WWF. As we do not want to let this go by quietly, this session is dedicated to all North Sea related research, past, present and future.
