INCISE 2021 - Cork, Ireland
INCISE (International Network for Submarine Canyon Investigation and Scientific Exchange) is a bi-annual forum bringing together scientists from around the world working on all aspects of submarine canyon research, and to stimulate discussions across disciplines. This cross-discipline approach allows scientists to collaborate and initiate a holistic approach to canyon research. The bi-annual conference brings together 80 - 100 geologists, biologists, engineers, oceanographers, ecologists and environmental managers. It provides a truly multidisciplinary and exciting forum for the exchange of knowledge and generation of ideas that underpin sustainable submarine canyon management.
INCISE 2021 will take place at University College Cork from the 7th - 10th June. The conference invites abstracts from international experts to present research on topics that address key issues and problems that are of relevance to the submarine canyon community. The aim of this is to advance the boundaries of submarine canyon research so that policy makers and environmental managers can tangibly benefit from research outputs. We also aim to promote the career development of young researchers by encouraging to participate in the conference (oral and poster dissemination as well as networking and open discussion). We also aim to foster national- and international-level collaborations through a number of themed sessions, “breakout” sessions, poster sessions, conference dinner and fieldtrips.
The theme of INCISE 2021 is "Canyons: human connections to the deep sea".
