Welcome to the ASSEMBLE conference to be held at the Royal marina Hotel, Olhão, Portugal, October 23-25, 2012

The aim of the ASSEMBLE Conference is to highlight scientific outcomes resulting from research carried out in ASSEMBLE Marine Stations through on-site and remote access to marine resources. The needs of users and improvements on this Transnational Access scheme will be discussed, especially in relation to the development of ASSEMBLE into the extended and long-term ESFRI marine infrastructure EMBRC (European Marine Biological Resource Centre; www.embrc.eu).

Both previous users and potential new users of ASSEMBLE and EMBRC are invited to this conference and to submit abstracts for oral (15 min + 5 min for questions) and/or poster presentations. Deadline for abstract submission is extended to June 29, 2012 and selections will be communicated by the 8th of September.
