Aquaculture Europe 2020 will take place ONLINE from April 12-15, 2021.
The basic format of the event will stay the same as ‘normal’ Aquaculture Europe meetings, with morning plenary sessions and then breakout parallel sessions for oral and Eposter presentations. The parallel sessions will be made up of shorter slots for pre-recorded video presentations of the oral presentations and with time allocated to review Eposters and for Q&A.
AE2020 ONLINE will also feature an e-Market, where vendors and media partners will have a dedicated place online to present their products, link to their website and have a chat-box to interact with attendees and set up meetings. Two categories of e-Market participation are proposed. The first is "VENDOR" with extensive benefits. The second is "HEADLINE VENDOR" with more enhanced opportunities. Details of these are provided on the AE2020 web site.
All presentations (oral videos and Eposters) and the e-Market will be available for a 30-day period after the event for attendees to see online. This ensures that attendees will not miss a presentation that they would have otherwise missed with a busy programme in a physical event. During that period, contact with the presenter will also be facilitated, complementing the live Q&A during the conference days.
EAS will also organise the planned RAS@EAS event as a one-day online workshop on April 12 before the conference starts. The
workshop theme “Creating an Optimum Environment” will be a panel-based discussion organised in three sessions addressing
three key questions: “How do we best approach disinfection”? “Where are we going with monitoring & autonomy”? And “What
are the most problematic interactions between fish & their environment”? Each session will have an introductory presentation,
followed by a moderated panel discussion.
Registration for this event can be made separately, but all those registered for the full AE2020 event will be able to attend.
