Program

ICYMARE 2019 BREMEN will consist of over 140 talks and over 70 posters organized in 20 scientific sessions. These sessions cover a broad variety of topics from citizen science, plastic pollution, and tropical ecology to more organismic sessions as for instance on plankton, or invasive species. Together with additional workshopsexcursions and other communicative activities, ICYMARE will be an excellent networking event for young marine researchers. Have a look at the preliminary program below.

From early September on, you can download the final program at the bottom of this page.
