EMBS54: draft of the full programme now available

EMBS54: draft of the full programme now available

Dear all,

A draft of the full programme for EMBS 54 is now available at www.marinestations.org/embs-european-marine-biology-symposium/.  There is a really great line up of speakers and posters from all over the world covering a broad range of marine biological topics, habitats and taxa in our themed and general sessions.

Registration will remain open until 9 August, but we ask all presenters to register before 30 July if possible so that we can finalise the programme. Note that the slots for talks are 10 minutes including questions.

When registering, note also that there is a limited number of places for the kayaking excursions and they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  There is no limit on places for the Dublin Bay cruise or the Glendalough trip.

We’re very much looking forward to welcoming you to Dublin in a few weeks’ time!

Best regards,

Tasman Crowe

EMBS54 – abstract  deadline approaching

EMBS54 – abstract deadline approaching

EMBS54, Dublin, 25-29 August 2019

In addition to the great speakers, we are working on a great programme of social events and excursions for the 54th European Marie Biology Symposium in Dublin on 25-29 August this year. Options will include a cruise around Dublin Bay, a visit to scenic Glendalough and its ancient monastic settlement, and canoe excursions on the Liffey in Dublin itself or out on Dublin Bay. The Yellow Submarine competition will have its roots in Irish traditions and there will be a ceilidh after the conference dinner.

The April 3rd deadline for abstract submission is approaching and abstracts are being accepted via the website – www.embs54.org.

As well as a general session on any aspect of marine biology, the themes this year will focus on blue growth, rapid change, fundamental traits and movement and redistribution of species.

Details of registration are also available on the website. We have aimed to keep the costs low and flexible and really hope that you will be tempted to join us in Dublin this August!

MARS relaunch – Supporting a decade of Marine Science in Europe and beyond

MARS relaunch – Supporting a decade of Marine Science in Europe and beyond

         I am delighted to be able to provide you with the MARS newsletter with details on the launch of our brand new strategy “Supporting a decade of Marine Science in Europe and beyond”. The new strategy supports our vision for “a network of connected marine stations across Europe, which are well-positioned to meet the future scientific and societal challenges for the marine environment from the national to the global level”.

This is an exciting time for MARS and we would therefore welcome feedback on the contents of this newsletter and on the new strategy in general.

If you are not currently a member of MARS and would like to be then please contact me directly at matfr@mba.ac.uk.

Regards

Dr Matt Frost

Mars President

MARS Directors Meeting, Crete (GR), 27-29 November 2018

MARS Directors Meeting, Crete (GR), 27-29 November 2018

The next MARS Directors meeting will be held at HCMR, Crete, November 27th to the 29th 2018.
MARS has been bringing together marine stations and institute directors for over two decades (since 1995) and in 2017 MARS members supported the development of a new strategy.
The MARS strategy entitled, “A new Strategy for MARS: Supporting a Decade of Marine Science in Europe and Beyond”, was developed in the context of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).
The draft of this strategy is now available for discussion at the meeting along with ideas on its implementation.

In addition, there will also be important discussions on
– the World Association of Marine Stations (WAMS);
– general science and policy updates; and
– models of sustainability for marine stations and institutes;
– as well as the chance to network with directors from across Europe and beyond.
