VLIZ Marine Science Day 2020

The 20th edition of the VLIZ Marine Science Day promises to be a special edition. In 2020, VLIZ celebrates its 20th anniversary with the central theme being VLIZ breaks boundaries. For this 20th edition we expect extra participants and are moving with the # VMSD20 to another location: CC De Grote Post in Oostende. The program also receives a thorough makeover. For the first time, we supplement the plenary program with various parallel break-out sessions. For all tastes! More than ever #VMSD20 will be an unmissable feast for the marine professional and student, full of opportunities to interact with like-minded and the ideal opportunity to expand your network!

In addition to the classic plenary keynotes and pre-doc presentations, we offer the all other participants the opportunity to share their research, activities and products via a Sea Science Fiction market, a Sea-nema, live poster presentations, a Cool Ocean Tool Speakers Corner, or 1 of the 3 interactive surprise sessions for those who come up with the best ideas.

  • The deadline for submitting an abstract for an oral presentation (pre-doc), a poster or for hosting an interactive surprise session expires on 12 January 2020.
  • You can submit an idea for one of the other interactive sessions (the Sea Science Fiction market, the Sea-nema or the Cool Ocean Tool Speakers Corner) until 16 February 2020.
  • Marine and maritime companies can introduce themselves at the Meet the Company event. For this you send an email to karen.rappe@vliz.be, after which we will contact you to see the possibilities.
Registration for the event will open from mid-January 2020.
