Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM)

Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM)

The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is a must-attend event for all Quebec-Ocean members, Allies and partners. Each year, participants have the pleasure of meeting to discover and discuss the latest advances in research and develop new collaborations.

Highlights of the ASM2020

This year, the annual scientific meeting of Québec-Océan took place in virtual mode on February 8, 9, and 10, 2021, followed by a day of workshops organized by the student committee on February 11. The event brought together more than two hundred people from all the universities collaborating with Québec-Océan (Laval, UQAR, McGill, UQAC, INRS-ETE, and Concordia), several Allied organizations, UQO, and several partners. The 30 poster presentations and 16 oral presentations given by 15 students and 1 post-doctoral researcher covered all disciplines of oceanography. This year's edition also included several new features: videos of laboratory presentations made by some of our participating researchers and vignettes made by our theme leaders that highlighted the achievements of our members and launched the new scientific program of Québec-Ocean. 

 

Among the highlights, let's mention the quality of the student presentations rewarded by several awards (see below). Two guest speakers who recently joined Québec-Océan presented their work and research perspectives:

 

Jacob Stolle (INRS-ETE) presented the impacts and hazards of extreme coastal flooding.

Émilie Saulnier-Talbot (U. Laval) talked about long-term environmental dynamics in anthropized coastal zones. 

 

The presence of our Allies from the Centre de géomatique du Québec (CGQ), the Institut nordique de recherche en environnement et en santé au travail (INREST) and the Conseil régional en environnement du bas Saint-Laurent (CREBSL), who presented their organization, allowed for fruitful and promising exchanges for the future. 

A panel discussion on the training of the next generation, bringing together several representatives from provincial and federal ministries, businesses, and UQAR-ISMER, generated numerous reactions and avenues of work on student training. 

On Thursday, February 11, two workshops organized by the student committee were greatly appreciated. On the program: a training on equity, diversity, and inclusion and a discussion on the hidden face of research.
