Science symposia

Symposia co-sponsorship

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ICES provides support for scientific symposia that contribute to our efforts to develop and share knowledge and expertise related to marine science.

We welcome proposals annually for symposia on topics that are relevant to the science priorities in the Science Plan and/or issues highlighted in the Strategic Plan and​ Advisory Plan. Next call will be published in the end of 2023.

ICES sponsorship implies one or more of the following

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

  • Financial assistance: The majority of ICES co-funding for symposia is earmarked to support the participation of Early Career Scientists (up to 10,000 euros per symposium)​

  • An opportunity to use ICES Journal of Marine Science as an outlet for the publication of the proceedings.  

  • Secretariat resources for hosting the symposium website  

  • Secretariat resources for hosting the registration and abs​


  • 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 our Science Committee (SCICOM).
