International Conference for Young Marine Researchers

The International Conference for YOUNG Marine Researchers – ICYMARE is to be held in Bremerhaven on 25 - 28 August 2020.  The conference is completely organized by young volunteers and offers a powerful and inspiring international set-up for an excellent network opportunity and some first conference experience in your early career. Let’s start a new ICYMARE tradition and meet every year to discuss our research, ideas, and plans for the future. Become part of a very special first edition of (y)our new conference series.

What is special about ICYMARE:

  • ICYMARE aims to be a networking event for YOUNG marine researchers
  • ICYMARE is completely organized by young marine researchers on voluntary basis
  • ICYMARE will have changing locations and hosting support
  • But most of all: ICYMARE aims to stay open minded to your ideas and input and the team takes extra care for ICYMARE to get that easy-to-talk-to atmosphere where you will build your network as well as make friends.
