Symposia facilitate international, inter-institutional and cross-disciplinary communication by bringing together scientists and practitioners to present and discuss their latest work outputs and future plans. These events help scientists, especially at early career stages, to develop networks of collaborators, to get feedback on their research and to learn about new tools and techniques. The opportunity to meet colleagues and share knowledge adds value to e-communications and creates a sense of community and further facilitates increased interaction between ICES and the marine science community at large. The inclusion of Early Career Scientists is especially encouraged, and often times travel support is available and can be requested.
ICES provides support for scientific symposia because they contribute to our efforts to develop and share knowledge and expertise related to marine science. In addition to the annual science conference that we organise, we are pleased to consider sponsorship of symposia in any areas of marine science highlighted in the ICES Science plan.
