Friends of the Environment,

we happily announce the Call for Abstracts for a conference designed by and for young marine researchers.

ICYMARE 2020 BREMERHAVEN will take place at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven from 25 to 28 August 2019. The icebreaker event on the first evening will be in the forum of the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research.

ICYMARE stands for “International Conference for YOUNG Marine Researchers”. No matter if you are a Bachelor, Master or PhD candidate, we invite you to present your research to (y)our dynamic audience with an atmosphere of being among friends. Get some first conference experience and start building your personal and international network.

ICYMARE 2020 BREMERHAVEN:From 25 to 28 August 2020 at theUniversity of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven,Germany

You can attend with presenting a talk or a poster in one of the sessions listed below. Have a look and decide to which session your presentation fits best. All we need is your abstract and a short CV submitted to moc.e1718814500ramyc1718814500i@tca1718814500rtsba1718814500 not later than 15 May 2020. At, you can find an abstract submission template, some guidelines, a preliminary program and more information on the venue.

After your submission, the session hosts of the individual sessions will evaluate the abstracts and will select presentations for ICYMARE 2020 BREMERHAVEN based on objective criteria. You can also attend as a listener without a presentation, or you advertise your very own project during the project pitches. There are lots of opportunities to get involved.
