The 47th EMBS will be held from 3 to 7 September 2012 in Arensdal, Norway.
The history of the European Marine Biology Symposia dates back to 1960 when a series of German marine biological symposia was initiated by Otto Kinne, Director of the Biologische Anstalt Helgoland. These Symposia attracted marine scientists from outside Germany and it was realized that European participation should be encouraged.
The first EMBS were held at Helgoland in 1966 and hosted by Biologische Anstalt Helgoland. But already in 1967 the 2th EMBS was arranged in Bergen, Norway with University of Bergen as host. Also the 18th EMBS was arranged in Norway (Oslo) with University of Oslo and Norwegian Institute of Water Research as hosts.
29 years lather the EMBS-arrangement is back in Norway (Arendal) with Institute of Marine Research as host. The 47th EMBS will be take place in Arendal, Norway, September 3 – 7, 2012.
