Belgian Young Marine Scientists' Day 2013 - 04/12/2012


The VLIZ Young Marine Scientists' Day 2013, scheduled to take place in Bruges, Belgium, on 15 February 2013, will bring together marine scientists from Flanders and further afield to discover the quality, diversity and relevance of multidsiciplinary marine research. Abstracts can be submitted until 14 December 2012.

The VLIZ Young Marine Scientists' Day will highlight the diversity, quality and relevance of marine and coastal sciences in Flanders with an extensive poster session and a selection of pitching presentations. This edition of the VLIZ Young Marine Scientists’ Day will be preceded by a ‘VLIZ mini-symposium Southern Bight of the North Sea’ on 14 February 2013 (afternoon). The final programme and registration form for both events will follow early January 2013.

In order to duly prepare this comprehensive poster session – a snapshot of 'the state of marine science in Flanders' – all marine and coastal scientists are challenged to prepare a short abstract (max. 500 words: template attached) outlining the research project.

All abstracts will be published in a ‘VLIZ Special Publication’.

Twenty abstracts will be selected for a 5-minute plenary oral presentation. A PowerPoint presentation of max. 5 slides will be allowed, though the aim is to go a step further working without PPT. A remarkable object or piece of literature (which can be displayed plenary with a camera-system) can do. Abstracts selected for oral presentations should be written in a language that is easy to understand and sounds fascinating for the evaluators.
