Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Kerry Howell, Professor Paul Tyler, Dr Alan Jamieson and Dr Bhavani Narayanaswamy
The deep-sea is the largest ecosystem on earth covering 60% of the planet’s surface. However, our fundamental knowledge of this ecosystem has been limited by the logistical challenges of conducting research in this environment. This meeting will explore how recent developments in autonomous and robotic technologies could bring about a step-change in deep-sea research, ultimately revolutionising understanding of global biodiversity.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
There will be a poster session at 17:00 on Monday 12 November. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team with the subject heading "Beyond Challenger: poster abstract" no later than Monday 1 October 2018. Please note that places are limited and posters are selected at the scientific organiser's discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
