ICES Symposium Information
The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) Fisheries and Plankton Acoustics Symposium will be held in Portland, Maine USA 27-30 March 2023 and registrations are now open!
The theme is: "From Echosounders to the Cloud: Transforming Acoustic Data to Information". The 2023 Symposium marks the 50th anniversary since the first ICES sponsored Symposium on Fisheries Acoustics and Technology was held in Bergen, Norway (1973) and this symposium will be the 8th in that illustrious history.
Previous symposia were held in Bergen, Norway (1973, 1982, and 2008), in Seattle, USA (1987), in Aberdeen, Scotland (1995), in Montpellier, France (2002), and in Nante, France (2015).
The symposium is an open forum to facilitate exchange among the spectrum of scientists and engineers who develop acoustic instrumentation, collect data, and transform those data to information critical for conserving fisheries and ecosystems.
