At this page, conferences of interest to the ESMB are being listed with links to the specific conference site for further information. Conferences hosted by ESMB will be given priority, but other relevant conferences may also be listed. If you have a conference that you think may be of interest to ESMB, please fill in the request for announcement in the area below. We reserve the right to decide, which conferences will be listed.
ESMB is open for arranging conferences and workshops jointly with other marine biotechnology organisations, projects or other stakeholders, or ESMB may want to arrange an event back to back with other conferences. If you are planning on arranging an event where such an arrangement could be to the benefit of your own event and for ESMB, please send further information to the ESMB Secretary in the area provided under the ‘Contact’ tab on this site. Please allow sufficient time for planning, as any decision on joint actions will have to be decided by the ESMB Board.
The 20th International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling (ICMCF), 21-26 June 2020, Guangzhou, China.
It will be the first time for ICMCF to be held in China which has a large marine area, rich marine resources and vibrant maritime industries. The venue will be in Guangzhou, the economic and cultural center of Southern China, where trades of silk, porcelain, spices and dyes began 2000 years ago. The ancient Maritime Silk Road started from Guangzhou Port, passed through the Strait of Malacca, the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, and finally reached the Mediterranean Sea thus connecting Asia, Europe and Africa together. Today, Guangzhou is developing rapidly within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The coming conference will be hosted by South China University of Technology (SCUT), a leading educational institution in China. We will try our best to organize a high-standard conference for experts from around the world to discuss the latest basic and applied research advances related to marine biofouling and corrosion.
LIPIDS IN THE OCEAN. Structure, function, ecological role and applications, 17-19 November 2020, Aveiro, Portugal.
This event will be a great opportunity for researchers, students and stakeholders to share their knowledge, expertise and new ideas on marine lipids and advance our knowledge on the study and potential applications of these biomolecules. Lipids play a key role when aiming to understand complex trophic-interactions in the marine realm, as they allow to shed light over the recurrent question of “who is eating what”.Marine lipids can also reveal local to regional adaptations of marine organisms to shifting biotic and abiotic conditions, a feature of extreme relevance if one considers the ongoing changes on the oceans of today and tomorrow. These molecules allow researchers to work at multiple organizational levels, from unicellular marine organisms to the functioning of whole ecosystem.
