Starting off as a national students' event, Youmares has expanded over the years to a bottom-up worldwide network and international meeting of young ocean researchers and experts.
Preceded by the annual meeting of the German Society of Marine Research (DGM) and the DGM-Forum, Youmares 7 was again a great success where we could enjoy the various talks and workshops as well as spending time together. Many ideas and contacts were exchanged which is the main idea - and it was truly inspiring.
Youmares 8 will take place in Kiel on September 13-15th 2017.
We are very happy that we can meet at Kiel University, place of the Cluster of Excellence 'The Future Ocean' with organisational support of the 'Integrated School of Ocean Sciences' (ISOS). So, please save that date.
1. Call for sessions
WE want YOU at Youmares 8, on September 13-15th 2017 in Kiel!
“Oceans across boundaries: learning from each other”
YOUR field of investigation or interest should become a focus! YOU as a chair of a scientific session for a young, professional audience! YOU as an author of a peer-reviewed review article in the Youmares Conference Proceedings 2017! YOU as a participant and advanced (Master or PhD) student and
YOU with your broad overview as well as a detailed understanding of your marine research subject!
Apply with your own session (alone or as a team) for YOUMARES 2017; deadline is January 31st.
2. This was Youmares 7
Around 110 participants joined Youmares 7 at the University of Hamburg. Eleven sessions gave an insight into the research fields of young researchers and students. It is one of the charming aspects of Youmares that also Bachelor and Master students have an audience to present their work. Young scientists organised everything informally, always a hand to give and a hand to receive help, that in the end everyone was sitting with an 'UR-Knall'- beer philosophising about how we can really manage EU-fisheries or dancing their PhDs in the Volt-Bar… Thanks for that experience!
3. Support for Youmares 8
As every year, we need your help to realize our oncoming conference and network meeting. Youmares is non-profit oriented, still we need money and resources to make it happen.
Lisa Hentschel presented the working group Oceanphilosophers founded after the Youmares conference in 2015 and invited participants to join. The platform is now being set up, see: http://www.oceanphilosophers.com/
Are you interested to participate? Then contribute to newsletters and join our Oceanphilosophers meetings!
Let’s see each other in Kiel - we keep in touch; follow us on twitter or facebook.
