SIBIC 2018

SIBIC 2018

The Centre for Marine Sciences (CCMAR) and the University of Algarve have the pleasure to invite you to SIBIC2018, the VII Congress of the Iberian Society for Ichthyology, which will take place in University of Algarve, from the 12th to the 16th of June, 2018.

We are planning on a comprehensible conference which encompasses all aspects of fish biology and habitat or resource management, from riverine environments to the open waters of the planet’s oceans. This consolidates SIBIC’s will to uphold the ecological relevance of fish and promote the transfer of multidisciplinary knowledge across freshwater and marine realms.

Despite its geographical denomination, SIBIC reaches outside Iberia. Spain and Portugal extend from the Mediterranean to the mid of the Atlantic. Oceans are global and riverine issues can be translated almost everywhere. Therefore, we extend this invitation to all which would like to attend or present their research regardless of geographical origin or location.

We especially welcome students and early career scientists. SIBIC and the organizing committee will provide limited support, which can range from subsidy or travel grants to waiving of registration fees. Please keep a look for the application rules and further information in the SIBIC2018 webpage: www.sibic2018.org or contact by email at SIBIC2018@ualg.pt.
