UCT’s Marine Research Institute is hosting the Benguela 2016 symposium from 15 to 18 November.
Since the 1996 symposium, there have been many successful research activities in the Benguela system, with associated meetings and conferences. Many of these have been very focused in their scope, while others have been presented at conferences outside the region or published across a wide variety of journals.
The 2016 symposium thus aims to provide a platform for these results to be brought home to the region and showcased alongside those from local researchers.
Bringing together 169 people from 14 countries, the scientific programme will focus on interdisciplinary, synthetic presentations.
Participation at the symposium is open to researchers and students who are active in the region and from further afield.
