Call for Abstracts

Present your work at ICMB XI

The ICMB XI Scientific Steering Committee invites the submission of abstracts for oral presentations and posters reporting new science and approaches across the field of marine bioinvasions. Our conference program will be organized around six core themes. Presentation of work aligning with our themes is encouraged, and we also welcome submissions on other topics.

Abstracts are due by November 20, 2022. Learn more, and submit here.

Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed and selected based on the quality and rigor of the abstract and the novelty of the work. If an abstract is accepted, at least one co-author will be expected to register for and attend the conference to present the work.

Student or Early-Career Scientist?

If you are a current student or early-career scientist (highest degree received within the past 3 years), we strongly encourage you to apply for a Travel Award to help cover your conference fees and travel costs.

To apply for a Travel Award, please submit your application materials along with your abstract.

Learn more about eligibility and application requirements on our Travel Award page.


An e-book of accepted abstracts will be published on the ICMB website.

In addition, we are happy to announce that the International Association for Open Knowledge on Invasive Species (INVASIVESNET) has agreed to publish two special issues in INVASIVESNET journals to highlight research presented at ICMB XI.
