The 2nd International Congress of Young Marine Researchers will be held in Malaga (Spain) this October. The Congress, organised by and for young marine researchers, seeks to promote and bolster the research from young scientists into the marine field in order to generate a meeting space among different marine related disciplines, building novel synergy and cooperation among participants.

The congress, organised by CEI · MAR and the University of Malaga in collaboration with EuroMarine, is aimed at postgraduate through to early-career postdoctoral scientists.

The organising committee is working alongside EuroMarine’s OYSTER group to ensure that the Congress directly addresses the needs of young marine researchers.

The Congress will be structured based on 6 thematic areas of interest:

1. Sea Knowledge

2. Integrated sea management

3. Sea as a resources source

4. Cultural value of the sea

5. Engineering and the sea

6. Health and the sea

More information on these thematic areas can be found in the Congress website.

The deadline for abstract submissions has yet to be announced. The EuroMarine website will be updated once this is made available.
