YOUMARES – Conference for Young Marine Researchers

YOUMARES – Conference for Young Marine Researchers

Event date: 11-13 September 2019 - Hamburg, Germany

 

St­arting off as a national students’ event under the umbrella of German Society for Marine Research (DGM), YOUMARES has expanded over the years to a worldwide network and international meeting of young marine researchers and experts.

YOUMARES CONCEPT

YOUMARES was organised for the first time in 2010 as network meeting for YOUng MArine RESearchers. Within the German Society for Marine Research (DGM) the Working Group on Studies and Education was founded to organise that yearly event. Since 2010 YOUMARES has developed into the largest meeting for young marine scientists in Germany. It is now well-known among young researchers as an excellent platform to present results in a professional atmosphere that, at the same time, still manages to avoid the sometimes overwhelming character of established scientific meetings. The concept is to exchange ideas in an easy-to-talk-to group of similar minds. In other words, it has grown up while remaining young at heart.

YOUMARES is a bottom-up organized conference and is non-profit oriented, which means that the work is done by volunteers and the conference costs are mainly covered by sponsors as well as our conference fee.

YOUMARES BACKGROUND

Dr. Sebastian Ferse from the YOUMARES 4 Young Science Committee wrote for example: “When I first became active in the small working group of the DGM from which the original idea for a ‘small network meeting’ developed, I had a vague idea of a potential platform that would reflect the current situation of students in the broad area of marine sciences and would provide some opportunities for exchange of thoughts and experiences. YOUMARES has since outgrown our wildest thoughts.”

YOUMARES FOCUS

YOUMARES is a scientific conference for Bachelor, Master, and PhD students, those who want to study marine sciences and those who already finished. The wide range of topics and interdisciplinary character is one of the most important aspects of YOUMARES. Another aspect is the bottom-up organisation by young researchers who are always very motivated to make that yearly experience worthwhile and especially long-lasting when it comes to the network built.
