2020 Call for Talk Abstracts

"MASTS - A decade of innovation" - CALL FOR TALK ABSTRACTS

MASTS Annual Science Meeting (ASM): 5-9th October 2020


The deadline for abstract submission is now closed.

We can't wait for you to join us as we celebrate our tenth annual conference! This cross-disciplinary online meeting brings together members of the global marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations.

This year the ASM will be an online event. We will spread over five days (not the normal three days) and use pre-recorded talks, which will be much shorter, to ensure online fatigue is not an issue.

Please submit using this template.



Abstracts are invited for ‘sessions’ that will be in the form of seven 5-6 minute pre-recorded ‘flash talks’ (i.e. online video/powerpoints/animation), followed by a live Q&A session within which all the speakers will be panel members.

Abstracts can be submitted to one of the following sessions (further details here):

  • General Science Session
  • Governing Scottish Seas: theory, practice and future horizons
  • Structures in the Marine Environment
  • Marine Climate Change
  • Coastal ecosystem-based solutions: Climate-change adaptation and mitigation
  • Multiple Marine Stressors
  • Sustainable Aquaculture
  • Marine Biogeochemistry
  • Marine Science Technologies & Methodologies
