Welcome to the ASLO 2023 Aquatic Sciences Meeting Submittal Site

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.

 

Workshops, Town Halls and Other Auxiliary Events:

The organizers of the meeting encourage the submission of requests for town hall meetings, workshops or other auxiliary meetings.  Submission of these events will be available soon.  All applications must be submitted using the online form.

These events should be planned during lunch or possibly in the evening. Meeting room space will be complimentary as long as there are rooms available. All other costs will not be covered. Even if space is not available at the Convention Centre, you may still organize your own meeting or activity at an alternative location.

If you have questions about the application or an event that you are planning, please contact Sue Rulla at meetings@aslo.org.
