Event details

This is an Opportunity for new postgraduate students and early career researchers to present projects and ideas to their own peer-group in a supportive and sympathetic atmosphere.

PRMES 13 is the ideal opportunity to practice presentations and poster production, from newly started projects to full results of research.  We particularly welcome cross-discipline interaction and networking within the Marine and Earth Sciences. Come and make new contacts and friends from across the marine science community and see what others are doing and how this could assist your research.

Ph.D. supervisors: pre-register any new (2013) Ph.D. students - simply send a brief project description as the abstract. An ideal way for new students to network beyond their immediate field.

Whether your science is microbial activity or ocean-wide hydrodynamics (or something on a scale in between) it is hoped that everyone can get an insight into many different lead-edge science projects. Broadening one's horizons can be as important as seeing the fine detail on one's own work.

Cash prizes for both best posters and best presentation, together with citations/photographs to be published in Geoscientist.


Abstracts to be submitted to Dr T. Le Bas ( by 1 October 2013.

Format of abstracts: title to be less than 20 words; abstracts to be no more than one page of A4 (pictures and diagrams can be included if relevant); 12 point text please. The conference language will be English.


Registration Cost: £70 - Includes tea/coffee, lunches, conference dinner and abstract booklet.

There will also be a wine reception (sponsored by Gardline Ltd)

Conference sponsored and run by the Marine Studies Group, The Geological Society of London and the Marine Geosciences Group, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton.
