Call for Abstracts 

8-10 November 2022
in-person at the Technology & Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

The blue economy includes the marine, coastal and the inter-linked freshwater environment, the different marine and maritime sectors it supports, and the people connected to it. It also encapsulates the legislation, policies, programmes and international commitments that determine its management, as well as the under-pinning scientific research that provides data and information for evidence-informed policy development and is used to evaluate our success.

Join us as we celebrate our twelfth annual conference and discuss how to support the blue economy vision. The MASTS ASM is a cross-disciplinary event that brings together members of the marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations.

The first two days will bring together expert plenary speakers and contributed talks, panel sessions and e-posters outlining the latest research and management practices that address key topics related to marine science and management in the face of global climate change. Alongside our general science sessions, the event will include special topic sessions, and plenty of opportunity to enjoy networking. The third day will be devoted to workshops, more details on this coming will be coming soon! Early bird registration will open in August.

Talk and ePoster Abstract Information (deadline: 19th August)

Abstracts for talks are invited to sessions on:

  1. General Science (any field of study related to marine science and supporting the blue economy vision)
  2. Multiple Aquatic Stressors
  3. Artificial Intelligence
  4. Marine policy and management – linking current and future research to policy and impact,
  5. The influence of large scale offshore renewable developments on bottom-up ecosystem processes

Talks will be followed by a live group Q&A session within which all the speakers will be panel members. All presenters are encouraged to not solely focus on past and current research but reflect on gaps of knowledge and future research directions.

Abstracts for ePosters are welcome on any field of study related to marine science and supporting the blue economy vision.

The deadline for talk and e-poster abstract submission is 16.00 on Friday 19th August 2022. For further details about the sessions and the abstract submission template, please visit our dedicated webpage here.
