Aquaculture, food webs, machine learning, harmful algae blooms, small-scale and recreational fisheries, VMEs, mixed fisheries: just some of the focus points from the 18 theme sessions at this year's Annual Science Conference (ASC), taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden, 9–12 September.

ICES ASC features the latest innovative science and research from the marine science community. A full description of each theme session is available on the ASC website and scientists interested in presenting their work in Gothenburg should submit an abstract by 11 March.

ICES ASC attracts a global audience of scientists, as well as policy- and decision-makers, and interested stakeholders. Early-career scientists are especially encouraged to submit their work for presentation.

During the conference hundreds of participants gather to present and discuss the latest marine science, develop new ideas, and establish partnerships. The scientific programme provides opportunities for everyone, from students and early career scientists to senior scientists and leaders of research institutes, to engage and contribute.
