ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING
CONVENTION CENTRE – HÔTEL UNIVERSEL OF RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP
NOVEMBER 13-14-15, 2017

Dear colleagues, members, collaborators and partners of Québec-Océan,

Fifteen years ago, the Groupe interinstitutionnel de recherches océanographiques du Québec (GIROQ) was officially converted into Québec-Océan, thanks to a major mutation of FCAR in FRQNT (Fonds de recherche sur la nature et les technologies du Québec). That day, Québec-Océan became one of the first Strategic Research Groups created by the new program bearing the same name.

It is this very same Strategic Research Groups, its 57 researchers, its 100+ students, postdocs and research assistants that we invite you to meet. Come discover the research projects conducted by our researchers and their teams! More open than ever, Quebec-Ocean’s Annual Scientific Meeting is the best opportunity to meet and exchange with specialists of all backgrounds on ocean research in general, and on Arctic and St Lawrence River research more specifically.

The first day of the event is dedicated to members only. Workshops for researchers and students will contribute new ideas to build Quebec-Ocean’s future in research and training. The following two days are open to everyone interested in participating. They will feature oral and poster presentations, conferences, the annual activity report, a look back on Quebec-Ocean’s 15 past years, as well as presentations by partners and the not-to-be-missed annual banquet.

We hope to see all of you in Rivière-du-Loup!
