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!

Best regards,

Tasman

MARS increases support to EMBS

MARS increases support to EMBS

During the last years a stronger link between the EMBS and the MARS network has been established. Firstly the support was restricted to some announcements of the next conference in the MARS Newsletter. At this moment a few dedicated EMBS pages can be found at the MARS website. For the near future, the EMBS Committee has agreed to accept the offer of the MARS foundation to host the EMBS website, thereby mutually increasing the traceability and visibility of MARS and the EMBS conference series. Moreover, MARS supports the EMBS by promoting participation and increasing interest, through MARS poster awards (of about 100 to 250 €) at each EMBS meeting. New activities to be developed jointly are the installation of an archive on earlier symposia webpages, the maintenance of a database on (potentially/earlier) EMBS participants (facilitating on-line changes of addresses of (potential) participants, and electronic registration), and a strengthened outreach and fund raising.

New President of the EMBS

New President of the EMBS

At the end of this year the term of appointment of the present chair of the EMBS, Prof. Dr. Herman Hummel (NIOZ, NL) will expire. After an additional year (4 years instead of the regular 3 years term) he will pass from January 2017 his tasks to the new EMBS President.

Herman Hummel: “EMBS has faced some difficulties in the past but is alive and kicking at the moment. I am glad that the EMBS managed to survive the economic crisis, and kept its audience despite the vast amount of other scientific events that are being offered each Autumn. I hope the stronger links with the MARS network will contribute to the continuity of the EMBS in the future.
To my opinion the EMBS always has been, and still is, an excellent setting for the presentation of marine biological research (in it broadest sense) to an audience with a perfect mix of senior and early career scientists.
There is ample time for discussions in an open, almost informal, atmosphere. Not only after the presentations, but also during lunches, dinners, and social events (the ‘Yellow Submarine Contest’ turned out to be an important instrument for this).
I thank all the local organizers of the events that have made each individual EMBS a success!
It is now the time, and timely, to hand over the organization to ‘the next generation’ of scientists to keep this valuable symposium series, with a tradition of more than 50 years, ongoing. “

During the last EMBS symposium (Rhodes, Greece, 26-30 September 2016) Assoc Professor Tasman Crowe BSc, PhD (UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science) has been elected as the new President of the EMBS.
