The Deep-Sea Biology Society’s first ever online conference
The Deep-Sea Biology Society's first ever online conference
Online, 20-21 August 2020. #eDSBS is open to everyone in the deep-sea biology community, and talks and posters are welcomed on any subject that fits within our sessions. As the global pandemic has prevented the normal conference cycle this year, the trustees of the Society have decided that priority will be given to early-career researchers who need to present their work as part of their career milestones. However, we are very keen to receive abstracts from everyone to ensure we have a good balance of presenters.
Note that eDSBS is not a replacement for the normal deep-sea biology in-person meetings (e.g. the Deep-Sea Biology Symposium, the Deep-Sea Coral Symposium or the Chemosynthesis-Based Ecosystems meetings). The cycle of these physical meetings is planned to continue from 2021. eDSBS will also host the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Society, where the Trustees will present our financial reports and overview of activities of the past year, award prizes, and go over our plans for the next year.
