Dear coral reef community and interested visitors
After having succesfully completed the 14th ICRS 2021 Virtual, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 15th ICRS as in-person event in summer 2022 from 3 - 8 July in Bremen, Germany. This meeting will include plenary talks, a policy event, social events, workshops, and field trips as well as in-person oral and poster presentation opportunities.
The 15th International Coral Reef Symposium is the primary international conference on coral reef science, conservation and management, bringing together leading scientists, early career researchers, conservationists, ocean experts, policy makers, manager,s and the public. The symposium will be the key event to develop science-based solutions addressing the present and future challenges of coral reefs, which are globally exposed to unprecedented anthropogenic pressures. The event will present the latest scientific findings and ideas, provide a platform to build the essential bridges between coral reef science, conservation, politics, management and the public, and will promote public and political outreach.
The University of Bremen and the Bremen Covention Bureau (WFB) that together organize the 15th ICRS welcome you all to join these unique global events.
We hope that you will plan on attending the in-person 15th ICRS 2022 next summer.

The 15th International Coral Reef Symposium opens its doors
The abstract (re-) submission and online registration for the 15th ICRS 2022 are open.
Start your process HERE.
For the 15th ICRS, 3-8 July 2022 in Bremen, Germany, we invite submission of new abstracts in order to include very fresh research in the scientific program. This is an addition to the already evaluated abstracts that keep their status, but can be updated after registration.
Abstract submission will start in January 2022. So, best already start to prepare your new abstract since you need to submit it by February 23, 2022. There will be no deadline extension!
We have to be very strict with this deadline, because your abstract needs to be rapidly evaluated afterwards in order to combine new and previous evaluations that together are the basis of the scientific program of the 15th ICRS 2022. To submit your abstract, you only pay an abstract processing fee, but not the full registration fees. You will get the evaluation result of your abstract by March 24, so that you can afterwards register by April 7, 2022 the latest.
The new Open Access international journal OCEANS will publish as conference proceedings two Special Issues related to ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL and ICRS 2022 IN-PERSON. Registered participants of both ICRS events with accepted abstracts can submit related papers.
The ECO Magazine Special Issue on Coral Reefs in partnership with the 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL is now available online.
It includes many amazing stories from various fields of coral reef science, conservation and management.
