Sealice Online 2021

6. May 2021

The global sealice community is meeting online on 7 to 9 September 2021.

Since the 13th International Conference 2020 was rescheduled for 2021, and then again to May 2022, we appreciate that the period between conferences becomes unacceptably long. Therefore, the Organizing Committee has decided to stage an interim, or provisional, online conference in September 2021.

“Sealice networking and research is suffering from not being able to present and discuss important scientific progress and issues at hand. While the 13th Sealice Conference in May 2022 will provide the desirable platform for this purpose, we believe that the online conference in September will serve to alleviate the most immediate need for international interaction within the sealice community,” says Jóhanna Lava Køtlum, CEO at Fiskaaling.

The online programme is currently being prepared. It is scheduled for three days of an approximately two-hours duration each. The timing will be designed to accommodate participation across several timezones.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Sealice Online Conference in 7-9 September 2021.
