The 24th International Seaweed Symposium will be held in Australia’s southern most state, Tasmania. The Symposium will be held in Tasmania’s capital, Hobart, from Sunday 13th to Friday 18th February 2022.

Planning for the Symposium is proceeding for February 2022 as scheduled. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we anticipate the conference will be of a hybrid nature. We will plan to have some face-to-face sessions where possible, but we will be incorporating online attendance as well.

The organising committee feels the opportunity to have part of the Symposium hosted online presents an opportunity for us to reach a broader audience than the traditional Symposium and will also give us the opportunity to include different presentation formats. As such, we see 2022 as being a new and positive direction for the Symposium.
