Challenger Society 18th Biennial Conference

10-14 September 2018 at Newcastle University, UK

The Challenger Society for Marine Science is a learned society for marine scientists in the UK. The biennial conference of the Challenger Society attracts over 300 of the world’s leading marine scientists and showcases cutting-edge marine science and technologies.

In 2018, the conference will be held 10-14 September at Newcastle University. Several CAO investigators will be presenting at the Challenger Society Conference: Holly Jenkins (DIAPOD), Ina Lefering (Arctic PRIZE), and Geoff Abbott (ChAOS).
