Session proposals

The call is now open for session proposals for Marine Evolution 2018!

We welcome sessions proposals broadly within the field of Marine Evolutionary Biology!

Session proposals are due on October 1st, 2017

Suggestions should be submitted through our web portal for session proposal registrations: 


Marine Evolution 2018 invites session proposals broadly within the field of Marine Evolutionary Biology. Plenary presentations by six renowned speakers have been confirmed, and are listed on the conference website. Session topics can be developed in relation to these, or in any other relevant discipline within Marine Evolutionary Biology.

The conference will take place over three days in the beautiful Bohuslän region, listed as one of the “ten last great wildernesses in the world” by CNN. It is situated on the Swedish West Coast, strategically located between major international airports in Oslo, Norway and Gothenburg, Sweden. It will host nine sessions, as well as excursion events, evening performances and time for discussions and relaxation. The venue is the Strömstad Spa, a modern conference infrastructure with pool and gym facilities. The conference fee will be €360 (€150 for PhD students).

Session proposals should include: A short but descriptive title of the topic, a list of chairs of the session with contact information, a brief abstract (max 200 words), and a tentative list of proposed speakers to invite. 

Session chairs are expected to actively invite peers to register and submit abstracts for presentations. Once registration opens, November 1st 2017, participants will suggest which session they would like to fit into, and these registrations will be forwarded to the session chairs for consideration. Session chairs are free to organize sessions in the manner they see fit, with possibilities for keynote talks, speed talks, oral presentations of posters, etc.

All session chairs will have the opportunity to designate poster presentations to applicants who cannot be fitted into the oral presentation timeframe. Session chairs are also free to organize publication of presented materials in scientific journals, if deemed of interest by the participants. Sessions will be run three in parallel each day, from 11:00 – 14:45 with a 75-minute break for lunch.

Session proposals are due on October 1st, 2017, and should be submitted through the web portal.

If you have questions about the scientific program, including content questions relative to the sessions, or any questions regarding logistics, please contact the organizing committee at
