About the Conference

In December 2019, the Society for Marine Mammalogy (SMM) and the European Cetacean Society (ECS) will jointly host the World Marine Mammal Conference in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Our local organizers are SUBMON and the University of Barcelona.

Our goal is to bring together scientists, managers, policy-makers, educators and students from across the globe to discuss the world’s most exciting science and most pressing conservation issues.

The World Marine Mammal Conference offers an unparalleled opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue in order to foster international collaborations that will impact our understanding of marine mammal science and conservation.

We hope you will join us this December!
