2017: A Marine Mammal Odyssey, Eh!

The 22nd Biennial will be hosted in Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 22nd-27th 2017, with workshops to be held October 28th-29th. Halifax is one of Canada's foremost marine sciences, technological and conservation hubs and offers an exciting venue for the first Biennial to come to Canada’s east coast.

Reflecting on the journey that marine mammals and the people who study them have taken together over the years and the voyage that remains ahead for us (with a little Canadian flair), the theme for our conference is:

2017: A Marine Mammal Odyssey, Eh!

We have brought together a dynamic international team to prepare the very best conference experience for you. The program we are developing includes not only thought-provoking science, but also fun events including a welcoming reception with traditional Nova Scotia music on the waterfront and a masquerade ball themed closing celebration.

This year we will also offer an exciting new presentation format – video presentations! This new format allows you to combine your science and creative talents, providing a bridge between science and art. Instructions and examples can be found on the conference website and we encourage you to try it.

We look forward to seeing everyone in 2017 in Canada’s Ocean Playground!
