Marine Sciences Conference

The Swedish Society for Marine Sciences (Svenska havsforskningsföreningen, SHF) organises the Swedish Marine Science conference (Havsforskningsdagarna) once a year. The conference is an interdisciplinary marine conference where scientists, officials, consultants, biologists, chemists, oceanographers, engineers and geologists meet and share their experiences and knowledge during a small-scale, 2-3 days conference.

Anyone who works in Sweden within marine research or monitoring, or otherwise take particular interest in questions concerning our common sea-areas and marine environmental issues, are welcome to take part in this conference. Participants are welcome to present their work in the form of an oral presentation or poster, and the SHF committee also invites some speakers of current interests to the conference. In a unique way, the SHF-conference presents a selection of the latest research and current projects that goes on within Sweden, or with Swedish participants.
