Although actual registration for
the conference doesn’t open until March, authors are being prompted to put
forward their contributions, both for paper (oral) and poster presentations, between
now and deadline closure on 19 April – and can do so via a link on this page.
In addition to requesting authors from the wider scientific community, the call
for students and post-doctorates to apply to give presentations is as strong as
ever and is indeed one of the central tenets of the ASC.
Each submitted abstract will be
assessed by its technical worth and presentation as well as its relevance to
the theme session under which it is entered. There are 18 such theme sessions
covering a number of topics, and details, along with the session conveners and
related PDF documents, can be accessed here. Successful applicants will be
notified by email by the end of May.
ASC 2013 runs from 23 – 27
September at the Harpa concert hall and conference centre on the Reykjavik
waterfront and will see 600-700 scientists, stakeholders, and students from
around the world congregate to exhibit and deliberate over new aspects of
marine science, which this year will fall under one of the five umbrella
topics: implementation of the ecosystem approach, climate and climate change,
fisheries management, multiple impacts, and ecological aspects.
