Dear colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to announce the opening of the new Call for  
Abstracts for the 14th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS 2021),  
to be held in Bremen, Germany, 18-23 July 2021.

On 31 March, we published the inevitable decision to postpone ICRS  
2020 to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this significant  
delay by a whole year, the scientific program for ICRS 2021 will  
require an important content update at the abstract level.  
Fortunately, 99% of all sessions planned for the ICRS 2020 have been  
confirmed for the 2021 session program by the responsible chairs.

As the next step, today (15 July 2020) we launch a new and open Call  
for Abstracts. It allows on the one hand updating the current  
presentation program with the latest findings, and on the other hand  
new submissions to all sessions. Abstracts already accepted for ICRS  
2020 may retain their acceptance and final presentation assignment  
(oral or poster) for ICRS 2021, BUT must be resubmitted under the new  

We want ICRS 2021 to be as diverse and productive as coral reefs and  
we invite everyone to join us in ‘Tackling the challenging future of  
coral reefs’!

The scientific program of ICRS 2021 comprises 97 selected sessions in  
15 themes aimed at covering the broad spectrum of topics and  
disciplines of the global coral reef community.

Please take a look at the many excellent sessions included and submit  
or resubmit your abstract!  

Abstracts can be (re-)submitted online until 15 September 2020.

All information about this call and how to submit your abstract can be  
found here: www.icrs2021.de/program/call-for-abstracts/

We look forward to receiving your contributions and to welcoming you  
in Bremen!

Further information and all updates can be found at www.icrs2021.de

Thank you and kind regards,
Christian Wild (ICRS 2021 Chairman)
Malik Naumann (ICRS 2021 Project Coordinator)
