18th Biennial Conference of the Challenger Society for Marine Science

The next biennial conference of the Challenger Society for Marine Science will be held at Newcastle University.

Date/Time: 10-13 September 2018

Venue: The Boiler House, Newcastle University

Challenger Conference 2018 promises to provide a fantastic showcase of marine science, covering all areas of ocean research.

The official conference programme will commence with an ice-breaker event on the evening of the 10 September at our newly refurbished Boiler House on our main city campus.

This is then followed by a three-day lecture and poster programme.

It includes a conference dinner at 'The Boiler Shop', which dates back to the 1829 and was a focal part of the Stephenson Co locomotive works that built Stephenson's Rocket.

Alongside the formal conference programme, there are also a range special interest groups and community meetings taking place during and after the conference.

Details will become available as we get closer to the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Challenger Conference in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Our research looks into the environmental impact on coral reefs of rising ocean temperatures.
