Hosts IFS 2020

The University of New Hampshire and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School for Marine Science and Technology are organizing the 11th International Flatfish Symposium in New Castle, New Hampshire (USA), scheduled to convene from November 14-20, 2021.

The University of New Hampshire is the state’s flagship university, distinguished by its commitment to high quality undergraduate instruction, excellence in graduate education, and ranking as a top tier research institution. One of only 17 universities in the nation designated as a land-, sea-, and space-grant university, UNH serves the state and region through its commitment to continuing education, cooperative extension, cultural outreach, economic development activities, and applied research.

UNH is home to the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering and has multiple marine facilities located throughout the beautiful and culturally rich New Hampshire seacoast. The Marine School’s interdisciplinary focus fosters collaboration across the university to address today’s highly complex ocean and coastal challenges through integrated graduate education, research and engagement in oceanography, marine biology, ocean engineering, and marine policy.

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth distinguishes itself as a vibrant, public research university dedicated to engaged learning and innovative research resulting in personal and lifelong student success. UMass Dartmouth's School for Marine Science & Technology (SMAST) offers graduate degree programs, which focus on interdisciplinary basic-to-applied marine sciences and the development of related innovative technologies. In addition to the scholarly marine science and technology communities, the SMAST mission also emphasizes interaction with regional industry, and government and non-governmental agencies on compelling regional marine-related issues and technological development. The SMAST Department of Fisheries Oceanography delivers quality education and conducts cutting-edge research in the interdisciplinary sciences related to the interactions between marine organisms and the marine environment.
