About the event

Due to continued infection risks and travel restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the 14th ICRS will be entirely virtual this summer from 19 - 23 July 2021. This meeting combines asynchronous (pre-recorded submissions) with synchronous (interactive real-time discussions) elements. We feel it is important for the coral reef community to have the opportunity to share their research findings already this summer.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be hosting an in-person 15th ICRS in the summer of 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.

Both, the 14th and the 15th International Coral Reef Symposia, are the primary international conferences on coral reef science, conservation and management, bringing together leading scientists, early career researchers, conservationists, ocean experts, policy makers, manager,s and the public. These symposia will be the key events to develop science-based solutions addressing the present and future challenges of coral reefs, which are globally exposed to unprecedented anthropogenic pressures. Both events 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.
