Challenger Society 2018 Conference

The next biennial conference of the Challenger Society for Marine Science will be held at Newcastle University, located in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, famous for its cultural diversity and exciting nightlife.

Challenger Conference 2018 promises to provide a fantastic showcase of marine science, covering all areas of ocean research. The official conference programme will commence with an ice-breaker event on the evening of the 10th September at our newly refurbished Boiler House on our main city campus. This is then followed by a three-day lecture and poster programme and includes a conference dinner at 'The Boiler Shop' which dates back to the 1829 and was a focal part of the Stephenson Co locomotive works which built Stephenson's Rocket.

Alongside the formal conference programme there are also a range special interest groups and community meetings taking place during and after the conference, details of which will be available leading up to the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Challenger Conference in Newcastle upon Tyne on the 10-13 September 2018, organised by Newcastle University.
