Aquaculture Europe 2009 coming soon

Aquaculture Europe 2009 will address future research challenges – as aquaculture continues to develop, the research will undergo fundamental change. Current technologies have potentially reached their limits and we now need re-thinking on their role in contributing to the research agenda. Aquaculture Europe 2009 will address this challenge and will provide an international forum to discuss latest research initiatives and new research frontiers. Aquaculture Europe 2009 will take place from August 14-17, 2009, in Trondheim, Norway - just before the world’s leading aquaculture exhibition, Aqua Nor, where many new research approaches are already starting to find industrial applications.

AE2009 has attracted the submission of more than 350 abstracts from authors in 42 countries for the parallel and poster sessions. Special parallel sessions will also be dedicated to the outputs of the EU-funded SUSTAINAQUA initiative and the EAS Thematic Group EUROSHELL. The European Commission will once again organise a special EU Forum, where representatives of DG Mare and DG Research will present the new European aquaculture strategy and provide a question and answer forum on new research funding on aquaculture through the Community 7th Framework Programme. The EAS Student Group will also organise a special workshop session within AE2009.

We thank you for your support. The AE2009 conference will take place at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). More specifically, it will take place in the REAL Building (REALFAGSBYGGET), which is the Natural Science Dept. See map for directions.

The AE2009 Welcome Reception will take place on Friday, August 14 from 19h30 to 21h00 at the famous Archbishops' Palace, just behind the Nidaros Cathedral in the centre of Trondheim. The AE2009 President's Reception will take place on Sunday, August 16 from 19h30 to 22h00 at the Rica Nidelven Hotel. Maps
