IN BRIEF | EAS will organise AE2020 ONLINE!

Sunday, October 04, 2020

After weighing up all the elements of risk and contingency, the EAS Board has decided that the Aquaculture Europe 2020 event planned in Cork next April cannot now go ahead. The Board has therefore decided to organise AE2020 as an ONLINE event, held over the same dates April 12-15, 2021.

The basic format of the event will stay the same as ‘normal’ Aquaculture Europe meetings, with morning plenary sessions and then breakout parallel sessions for oral and Eposter presentations. The parallel sessions will be made up of shorter slots for pre-recorded video presentations of the oral presentations and with time allocated to review Eposters and for Q&A.

The Board has also agreed to extend the deadline for submission of abstracts to January 31st.
