Friends of the Environment,

We happily announce the Call for Abstracts for ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN, a conference designed by and for young marine researchers.

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.


New abstract submission deadline: 15 July 2021!

ICYMARE 2021 BERLINFrom 21 to 24 September 2021Online Event

ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN will take place from 21 to 24 September 2021. While for quite some time we were optimistic to be able to meet in person in Berlin, these times once again ask for a lot of adaption. ICYMARE is for everyone and, thus, will take place online once more. We welcome early career marine researchers from all over the world to become part of the ICYMARE family and this amazing scientific network.

Submit your abstract now and present your research online as a talk or a poster in one of the 20 sessions of ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN listed on the ICYMARE homepage. 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.e1712908580ramyc1712908580i@tca1712908580rtsba1712908580 not later than 15 July 2021 (NEW deadline!). Here, you can find an abstract submission template and some guidelines for the presentations. After your submission, the session hosts of the individual sessions will evaluate the abstracts and will select presentations for ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN based on objective criteria.

You can also attend to the online ICYMARE 2021 BERLIN conference as a listener without a presentation, you can advertise your very own project during the project pitches or you engage in a workshop or in the social events. There are lots of opportunities to get involved.

In case of questions, if you want to get involved, or if you want to become a sponsor of ICYMARE, please contact moc.e1712908580ramyc1712908580i@oll1712908580eh1712908580.

We are happy to meet you online and would love if you would spread the word!
