On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 17th EUROMAR 2021 conference, which will be held from the 4th to the 8th of July 2021 at the Congress centre at hotel Bernardin in Portorož, Slovenia. Plans are being made for a face-to-face conference. However, uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic have compelled us to organize EUROMAR 2021 as a hybrid event combining live interactions in a wonderful scenic environment with an option for virtual participation. Plenary lectures and invited talks featured in oral sessions will be made available simultaneously to the registered participants through online live broadcasting. The number of parallel sessions will be adjusted based on the topics of the conference and number of interested participants. Poster sessions will be organized with an option for individual discussions and/or separate small sessions.
Portorož is a small coastal town at the tip of Adriatic, where you can find beaches with views of the Adriatic Sea and diverse scenic paths on the overlooking hills with olive orchards and wine vineyards; from the cosmopolitan promenades to the romantic streets rich in history, from the authentic tradition of local customs and practices to the habits of the modern urban rhythms.
The International scientific programme committee and the local organizing committee hope to make the EUROMAR 2021 conference an exciting and memorable scientific event in a new way.
Let's spin into the future in Portorož together.
