8 - 11 January 2023
International Temperate Reefs Symposium2023 ITRS

Hobart | Tasmania | Australia

The International Temperate Reefs Symposium will be held in Australia’s southern most state, Tasmania. The Symposium will be held in Tasmania’s capital, Hobart, from 8th to 11th January 2023.

The ITRS is the premier conference for marine scientists with a focus on temperate hard-bottom habitats. The scope is broad and captures natural rocky reefs, man-made structures, and biogenic surfaces. Ecology is a key focus, but the meeting also caters for other scientific disciplines relevant to temperate reef biology including biogeochemistry, genetics, oceanography, remote sensing, biogeography and management, not to mention the vast array of interdisciplinary links.

The 2023 Symposium is being hosted by the University of Tasmania’s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.

Symposium Host

The 2023 Symposium is being hosted by the University of Tasmania’s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.

The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) is a world-class centre of excellence for research and education at the University of Tasmania.

Our research is innovative, relevant, and globally distinctive. Our education delivers first-class programs resulting in highly trained scientists and researchers serving the needs of academic institutions, industry, government and the community.

IMAS has three core research programs in Fisheries and Aquaculture, Ecology and Biodiversity, and Oceans and Cryosphere. These are linked by the cross-disciplinary themes of Climate change, Ocean-Earth systems and Oceans and Antarctic governance.

Based on IMAS’s activities, in the 2017 CWUR world university rankings by subject the University of Tasmania was ranked fourth in the world for Marine and Freshwater Biology, and seventh in the world for both Fisheries and Oceanography.

In the QS Rankings by Subject for 2017 the University of Tasmania was ranked in the top 50 for Earth and Marine Sciences, which covers the bulk of IMAS’s research and teaching activities.
