Challenger Society 2016 Conference

The next biennial conference of the Challenger Society for Marine Science will be held at the University of Liverpool, located within the heart of the city of Liverpool, famous for its maritime history, cultural diversity and exciting nightlife.

The 2016 Challenger Conference promises to provide a fantastic showcase of marine science and technology, covering all areas of ocean research. The official conference programme will commence with an ice-breaker event on the evening of the 5th September, followed by a three-day lecture and poster programme and include a conference dinner at the awe inspiring Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.

Alongside the formal conference programme there will be early career events and education & outreach opportunities that continue the ongoing contribution of this conference series to our next generation of marine scientists. There are also a range special interest group and community meetings taking place during and after the conference, details of which will be available leading up to the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 Challenger conference in Liverpool on the 5-8th September 2016, jointly organised by the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and the National Oceanography Centre.
