Dear Phycolovers,


It is my pleasure to announce that the 67th annual meeting of the British Phycological Society will be held at the Scottish Association for Marine Sciences, Oban, Scotland from Jan 7th to Jan 10th, 2019.  


The call for abstracts and registration will open mid-September, with a deadline for abstract submission on November 16th 2018.  The meeting will feature its traditional “general phycology” session, and plenary student session with prizes for best talk and best poster, named after Irene Manton. We will also host three exciting symposia on 1) interactions with microbiomes and grazers, 2) algal physiology in the lime light, and 3) blue carbon.


We have been working hard to make the conference affordable, with an unbeatable registration fee of £115 for BPS members, covering all social events and conference dinner. Accommodation deals and travel advice will also be announced when the registration opens.


All necessary information will be posted shortly on :


Enquiries can be sent to: bps2019atsams [dot] ac [dot] uk


We are looking forward to welcoming you in Scotland.
