Beginning on summer 2013, the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM) will hold the Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquia, a series of annual two-week summer encounters aimed at recent PhDs and advanced graduate students in Marine Sciences. Its main objective is to promote the exchange of ideas between experienced and young promising researchers on a relevant topic in Marine Sciences.
The central topic of the colloquium will change every year. The first one, to be held from 1 to 13 July 2013, is “Physical-Biological ocean interactions: from the micro to the large scale”. The colloquium will include theoretical and practical activities, all within this central topic, as well as individualised supervision of a related research problem. The colloquium will be complemented with a series of master lessons on hot topics.
The colloquium main activities will be held in the installations of the Institute of Marine Sciences, right by the beach and near downtown Barcelona. Accommodation will be provided in student residences or hotels nearby the institute.
