MASTS Annual Science Meeting: " Sea Change – changing seas, changing times"

The 2017 ASM will promote the latest advances in marine science, good governance and using sound science responsibly, and revisiting the vision: 'Clean, healthy, safe, productive, biologically diverse marine  environments, managed to meet the  needs of people and nature'

This cross-disciplinary meeting brings together members of the marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations. The cross-disciplinary nature of the event as well as the high calibre of the selected talks means that scientists can broaden their knowledge in marine science as well as benefit from expertise and ideas gained in a range of fields other than their own.

Science presentations and e-poster sessions will take place on the first two days (Wednesday 4th October and Thursday 5th October), together with Plenary Speakers and opportunities to network.

What is an e-poster and when does it need to be submitted by? If you want to see an example of a great e-poster, then please view Thom Linley's e-poster. E-poster submission deadline is 10.00 on Friday 22nd September 2017.

On the third day the venue will host a number of meetings and workshops:  If you are interested in hosting one of these, please contact Dr Emma Defew

We also invite you to join us at the conference dinner and ceilidh (music from the Hoochie Coochie band) to be held on the evening of Wednesday 4th October at the Millennium Hotel Glasgow. Tickets cost £40 and include three course meal, drinks and dancing! Glass of bubbles on arrival, followed by soup, chicken with thyme and mushroom café sauce (or mushroom & chive risotto for vegetarians), lemon tart and coffee and chocolates. Also includes half a bottle of wine with dinner.

On Thursday 5th October we invite you to a free civic reception hosted by The Rt Hon The Lord Provost of Glasgow at City Chambers.
