Still, we hope both new and old members will support the society by becoming a member. The membership fee can be paid via Swish or Bankgiro.

MSC 2020

Due to current situation with Covid-19, the Swedish Society for Marine Sciences (SHF) board has decided to cancel this year’s conference. Planning regarding the annual meeting and this year's Dyrssen winners' presentations is ongoing.

Update on the Marine Sciences Conference: 12-13 November

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.
