The Swedish Society for Marine Sciences (Svenska havsforskningsföreningen, SHF) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to promote cooperation between Swedish institutions and individuals who take a professional interest in the marine environment. As part of promoting the goals of our society, we are responsible for organizing the Marine Science Conference. This annual event is open to both researchers and private interest groups and serves as a great platform to present work and have discussions on current marine issues.

Havsforskningsdagarna 2019 i Öregrund 12-13* november

Vy över Öregrund i oktober

We are very happy to announce that the Marine Sciences Conference 2019 will be organized together with SLU Aqua in Öregrund, 12-13* November. Keynote speakers will focus on interactions between research, management, and environmental monitoring. The conference ends with a panel discussion on these topics with the keynote speakers. We welcome all that are active or interested in marine sciences, management, and monitoring to the conference!

Keynote speakers

Anna Gårdmark, professor, SLU Aqua
Jan Schmidtbauer Crona, investigator, Department for Marine and Water Management, Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management
Anna Sobek, Associate professor, Stockholm University Department of Environmental Sciences and Analytical Chemistry

The conference will close with a panel talk with all Keynote speakers.

The Dyrssen Award will be presented during the conference for the two best masters thesis within marine sciences (10 000 SEK and 5 000 SEK).

* We would like to inform you that the conference will be shortened with one day. The conference will start at lunch on the 12th and end in the afternoon on the 13th of November. As a consequence of this the registration fee has also been reduced accordingly, to 1500 kr as a normal fee and 1200 kr for PhD students. These reduced fees will be on your invoice. We hope that you still would like to join us for two fruitful conference days but would anyway like to give you the option to cancel your registration due to the changed schedule.

Everyone that has registered an abstract for a presentation will get to hold an oral presentation.
