The ISMS (International Symposium of Marine Science) is the most important appointment for marine sciences in our country. Promoted by the Marine Sciences Conference of Spanish Deans and by the Universities they belong, it has been taken place biannually since 2007, and it is also a unique meeting environment that brings together several symposia and congresses of diverse character.


In 2018 the 6th edition will celebrate in Vigo, and for the first time six international reference symposiums will take place at the same time: ISMS, EOF, SIQUIMAR, REDIBAL, ISC CDM, and the “Patrimonio Cíes” Workshop.
