Call for session proposals for ICES Annual Science Conference 2023

W​e are calling for theme and network session proposals for the 2023 edition of our flagship event, the Annual Science Conference (ASC).

The ASC provides opportunities for marine scientists to present and discuss the latest marine science, develop new ideas, and establish partnerships. The scientific programme provides opportunities for everyone, from students and early-career scientists to senior scientists and leaders of research institutes, to engage and contribute.​​​

We encourage proposals for topics that are accessible to a broad range of marine scientists, and that they cover at least one, and preferably more, of our science priorities. We would also like the proposal submitters to consider how their session will facilitate online participation for the participants who will be attending the session online.​​

How to submit a proposal

Submissions can be made using th​is o​​​​​​nli​​​​ne form​​ with the following login information:
username: ICES\submit
password: Ices123456

​As the submission page can time out, we suggest that you prepare your proposal beforehand and then copy the text into the online form. This way you will not lose your work if your ​​​session times out.​​

Theme session and network session​ examples are available to help structure your proposal, along with more information about these sessions type​​s​. ​​​

The deadline for submitting proposals is 9 September.​

At the moment, we are in the process of confirming the format and location of the event. We will publish this information as soon as possible.

We look forward to an interesting programme at our ASC 2023!
