​​​​​Aquaculture, food webs, machine learning, harmful algae blooms, small-scale and recreational fisheries, VMEs, mixed fisheries: just some of the focus points from the 18 theme sessions at this year's Annual Science Conference (ASC), taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden, 9–12 September.

ICES ASC features the latest innovative science and research from the marine science community. A full description of each theme session is available on the ASC website and scientists interested in presenting their work in Gothenburg should submit an abstract by 11 March.

ICES ASC attracts a global audience of scientists, as well as policy- and decision-makers, and interested stakeholders. Early-career scientists are especially encouraged to submit their work for presentation.

Simon Jennings, Chair of the Science Committee, encourages those interested to submit their abstracts soon.

Abstracts are due in just four weeks now, with theme sessions comprising the majority of the conference programme and taking place alongside keynote talks and discussions on the status of global fisheries and aquaculture, oceanographic drivers of biological processes, climate change effects on sea and society, and achieving SDG14".
