Annual Science Meeting

The Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland will hold its sixth Annual Science Meeting (ASM) on Wednesday 19th – Friday 21st October 2016 at the Technology & Innovation Centre, Glasgow. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!



The 2016 ASM will promote the latest advances in marine science, good governance and using sound science responsibly, and describe research that will lead us to achieve a sustainable marine economy and live within environmental limits.

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 19th October and Thursday 20th October), together with Plenary Speakers and opportunities to network.

What is an e-poster and when does it need to be submitted by? Find out more. 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 16.00 on Friday 7th October 2016.

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 19th October at the Millennium Hotel Glasgow.

Anyone interested in exhibiting at the 2016 event, or anyone wishing to showcase or demonstrate a piece of kit/equipment should email Dr Emma Defew

We advise delegates to book accommodation for the event as soon as possible. The nearest place to stay is the Premier Inn on George Street.
