Dear coral reef community and interested visitors
Welcome to the ICRS 2020 website!
The ICRS 2020, also known as the 14th International Coral Reef Symposium, is the most important global conference on coral reef science, management and conservation, bringing together the world's leading coral reef scientists, young career researchers, experts, policy makers, conservationists and reef managers. This website will provide you with current facts, news and any updates regarding ICRS 2020, such as key dates and events, until its opening in summer 2020.
SAVE THE DATE!
For the first time in its history, the ICRS will be held in Europe, taking place in the cosmopolitan and historic city of Bremen (Germany) from 5 – 10 July 2020.
On a side note, just in case you were wondering, the red and white animal-like figure in the ICRS 2020 logo is not a typical coral species from the region, but one of Bremen's most significant cultural emblems, the famous “Bremen Town Musicians”.
Under the overarching theme “Tackling the Challenging Future of Coral Reefs”, ICRS 2020 will aim to further our understanding of the future structure and function of coral reefs in times of unprecedented anthropogenic pressures. The five-day program will present the latest scientific findings, feature various outreach activities, facilitate exchange and future collaborations between scientists, managers and policy makers, and offer exceptional opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors.
It is our great pleasure to cordially invite you all to join and participate in this unique event. The University of Bremen and all involved ICRS 2020 organisers are looking forward to hosting your visit to the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen.
