Conference

15th Aquacultural Insurance & Risk Management Conference

The 15th Conference will follow the format of the preceding 14 successful aquaculture conferences that we have held around the world, over the last 40 years.

UK Arctic Science Conference 2017

The UK Arctic Science conferences have brought together researchers with a common interest in the Arctic environment.

Abstracts are welcomed across all the themes of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) Working Groups, namely:

ECSA 57: Changing estuaries, coasts and shelf systems - Diverse threats and opportunities

Estuarine and marine systems worldwide are shifting in their structure and function due to diverse drivers from local to global scales. The resulting threats to these systems are often all too apparent, yet such changes can also present new opportunities. The challenge is to harness these opportunities through new ways of thinking, scientific developments, innovative technology and more effective integration of science and management.

The abstract submission system will open on the 30th of October 2017.
