BLUE THINK CONFERENCE

Share Science, Spread Knowledge

The Blue Think Conference (BTC) is the first meeting organized by the Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR) PhD Students’ Committee. Our aim is to gather all students affiliated with our institute in a casual and relaxed environment to share the outputs of our works. All members of the University of Porto are welcome to attend, hear and discuss the work developed by CIIMAR students.

The presentations will be divided into three sessions that will be framed in the scope of CIIMAR three main research lines, which aim to accomplish developments in Marine Biotechnology, Global Changes and Ecosystem Services and Biology, Aquaculture and Seafood Quality. Each session will cover one of the three areas and will count with the presence of renowned scientists who will talk about their scientific careers, professional experiences and most important work achievements.

We hope that this day will expand our scientific knowledge, but also bring closer CIIMAR students who work in different groups and laboratories scattered through several faculties and institutes of the University of Porto. 

Furthermore, we wish to extend the invitation to the general public. Everyone is welcome to join and discuss the latest scientific contributions of CIIMAR's young minds.

REGISTRATION

Information

Registration is free but mandatory.

Students and researchers from all universities and institutes are welcome to register.
Only students affiliated with CIIMAR are encouraged to submit their abstracts. PhD and MSc students (current or former students who finished their thesis less than one year ago) will be considered for oral or poster presentations. Current and former bachelor students who developed their internships in research groups affiliated with CIIMAR are welcome to submit abstracts for poster presentations. All abstracts will be evaluated by the scientific committee. If submissions for oral presentations exceed the presentation slots, the scientific committee will decide which will be accepted for oral presentation and which will be referred to poster presentations.

Oral presentations will be included in one of the three sessions according to the research line. Posters will be discussed online through our Slack channel. Since posters will be visualized online we recommend you to keep text information and figures summarized for easier view. Further instructions will be available soon.

All accepted abstracts will be published in a Book of Abstracts. All participants and presenting authors will be given a certificate upon request.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION CLOSED

Abstract acceptance will be communicated by email - 20th, August 2020

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION WITHOUT ABSTRACT SUBMISSION - 4th, September 2020

 

VENUE

The main premises of CIIMAR-UP are located in Matosinhos, in the award winning building that also houses the New Porto Cruise Terminal.

Several groups collaborate in close association with multiple faculties in the University of Porto, holding laboratories and other working stations at FCUP, ICBAS, FFUP, among others. Several other institutes and companies work in a coordinated effort with CIIMAR researchers, sharing joint projects and supervision of PhD students.

Facing the current circumstances, all presentations will be live-streamed and participants are encouraged to post questions for the speakers and discuss the topics through our Slack channel (available soon). Posters will also be displayed online with discussion through Slack.
