Call for Virtual Research Presentations

Present your research in a virtual session and get to know marine early-career scientists from around the world!

Network and present - Show us your research online

Want to get to know other early career marine researchers? Present your research in short 5 to 10 minutes presentations and discuss it with an interdisciplinary group of 10 people online.

There is no need to actually present data, you can also present some info on you and your research interests or your future project. It is the network idea which has the focus.

It’s for free and easy to enroll: just register by sending us

  1. your full name,
  2. your affiliation,
  3. one to three sentences on your research, your future project or your research interests
  4. the session in which you want to get involved (1 – 11 from the right)


until 22 July 2020 to moc.e1596404905ramyc1596404905i@tca1596404905rtsba1596404905.


After your networking sessions, we would like to ask you about your experiences and emotions caused by the Corona crisis and how online alternatives of meetings and networking helped you through it. Therefore, we would like to send you a short (!) survey to fill out.


We would love if you spread the word on Facebook and Twitter (both: @ICYMARE), and of course in your institution or wherever you like.
