The 2012 ICES Annual Science Conference will be held in Bergen, Norway. The venue will be the Scandic Bergen City hotel. The conference will open on Monday 17 September and close on Friday 21 September.
ICES Annual Science Conference provides a forum in which an international community of marine scientists, professionals, stakeholders, and students gather to share their work. This is carried out through theme-based sessions, which include both oral and poster presentations. Each year, the Conference is hosted by one of our 20 Member Countries, and has a unique website to handle electronic submissions and registration.
