The International Conference for YOUNG Marine Researchers – ICYMARE is a bottom-up initiative entirely driven by passionate volunteers. It provides a dynamic and inspiring international platform, offering a valuable networking opportunity and a unique introduction to conference participation early in your career.

What makes ICYMARE exceptional:

  • ICYMARE hosts an annual on-site conference for young marine researchers, with changing locations and dedicated hosting support.
  • Build a professional and approachable network of young marine researchers in the welcoming atmosphere of ICYMARE.
  • Join our community and become an integral part of the ICYMARE family, where you can actively connect with fellow young researchers who share your passion and drive for marine science.

Our Mission

At ICYMARE, we value the equality of voices in our research community—every opinion counts, and you matter. We prioritize mutual respect, creating an environment where everyone is heard. If this resonates with you, we welcome you to join us at our annual conference, be it as a presenter, listener, or perhaps even as a member of the organizing team. Your participation is key to ICYMARE’s success.
