Objective

The ICMS 2023 aims to bring together scientists, engineers, practitioners and academics to exchange and share their experiences, ideas and research results on all present and future aspects of the world’s oceans.

In this edition, the conference will focus on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, highlighting marine-coastal ecosystems and the communities that depend on them. Thus, the main topics to be addressed are:

 

•  Marine environmental change: monitoring and mitigation.

• Sustainable use and protection of marine resources.

• Understanding interactions between the oceans and society.
