The 14th International Coral Reef Symposium, will be the primary international conference on coral reef science, conservation and management, bringing together leading scientists, early career researchers, conservationists, ocean experts, policy makers, managers and the public.

Due to the Corona pandemic, the conference, initially planned for 2020, will be held online. Thus, the first virtual ICRS ever has the name ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL. 

The virtual conference will take place during 19 – 23 July 2021 and is organized by the University of Bremen, Germany. Thus, just in case you were wondering, the animal-like figure in the logo are Bremen's most significant cultural emblems, the famous “Bremen Town Musicians”.

ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL will be a key event to develop science-based solutions addressing the present and future challenges of coral reefs, which are globally exposed to unprecedented anthropogenic pressures. The five-day program will present the latest scientific findings and ideas, provide a platform to build the essential bridges between coral reef science, conservation, politics, management and the public, and will promote public and political outreach. 

It is our great pleasure to invite you all to join this unique and global online event. The University of Bremen and all ICRS 2021 organisers are looking forward to hosting your presentations.
