53rd European Marine Biology Symposium

European Marine Biology Symposium

Ostend, Belgium, 17-21 September 2018. The Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and LifeWatch Belgium will organise the 53rd edition of the European Marine Biology Symposium (EMBS53) in Ostend, Belgium. EMBS53 aims at linking the history, the present and the future of (European) marine biology. 

Be there since this will be a special edition with – on top of a general session – a focus on ‘Marine Biology research from a Historical Perspective’, ‘Science in a Modern Era’, ‘Marine and Coastal Citizen Science’ and ‘Science in the North Sea’. We warmly welcome participation from European as well as non-European countries.

At present we are developing a program of inspirational speakers and will announce more details in due course. Registration and abstract submission will be opened from 15 January 2018 onwards.
