ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting 2023
4–9 June 2023 · Palma de Mallorca, Spain
Resilience and Recovery in Aquatic Systems
Concepts of resilience and recovery do not only apply to aquatic ecosystems but also to societies when faced with disruptions and crises. Past events have shown that adaptability and decisiveness are important keys to resilience and recovery. Disruptions are opportune moments for setting up strategies for management and recovery. Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, ASLO meetings have adapted by transforming the ASM 2021 Palma meeting to virtual with a positive attitude that in 2023 we will recover and meet in-person. Positivity is also an important factor. We do not dwell on problems, but we try to look for solutions and get united for whatever crisis we face.
We will incorporate the theme of resilience and recovery in aquatic systems into the plenary sessions and encourage submissions that examine these topics and invite you to contribute special sessions on topics relevant to freshwater and marine ecosystems.
Initially this meeting was scheduled to be held in Palma in 2021, but due to COVID-19, it became necessary to hold the ASLO 2021 Aquatic Sciences Meeting virtually. However, we plan to meet in Palma in 2023.
We look forward to having a dynamic meeting. The ASLO 2023 Aquatic Sciences Meeting was originally scheduled to begin in February, but has been moved to June. This will be an in-person meeting, beginning on Sunday with an opening plenary and reception, then conclude on Friday – with the scientific program scheduled Monday through Friday.
There will be a small virtual component for those unable to travel to Spain. This virtual segment will follow the 6-5-30 format used in the 2021 Aquatic Sciences Meeting and 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting.
We continue working on a state-of-the-art platform and organizers will be watching travel advisories and other COVID-19 restrictions.
