Pacific Congress on Marine Science and Technology (PACON International) excited to announce the 26th International Conference «Marine Science and Technology for Sustainable Development» to be held on 16-19 July, 2019 at the Far Eastern Federal University Congress Center in Vladivostok, Russia. The Conference is co-hosted with the Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, V.I. Il’ichev Pacific Oceanological Institute and Far Eastern Federal University.

PACON International is a non-governmental organization comprised of marine scientists, engineers, industrialists, and policy-makers dedicated to sharing state-of-the-art marine science and technology and the appropriate applications of this technology. This dedicated group of professionals meets every other year to discuss key research developments. Along with the high level of scientific and technical content, the event is an excellent networking opportunity with the constituents from all parts of the world ocean science all under one roof.

The Conference has grown over the years and is expecting over 200 participants from Pacific Rim countries and other regions of the world. This time the conference co-chairmen are Vice President of Russian Academy of Sciences Valentin I. Sergienko, President of Far Eastern Federal University Nikita Y. Anisimov and Director of V.I. Il’ichev Pacific Oceanological Institute, Far Eastern Branch, Academy of Sciences Vyachelav B. Lobanov.

The conference will be held in Vladivostok, the largest Russian city in the Far East with 0.62 million population and a large port city. Vladivostok is a base for many marine science research institutes of Russian Academy of Sciences, Hydromet Service, Fisheries Agency as well as a few universities and ocean related industry.

We would like to offer you an opportunity to join the world’s leading researchers to present advances in science from all disciplines that contribute towards ocean sustainability for the benefit of human life.

In addition to delivering an update of the pertinent science, PACON-2019 will foster productive trans-disciplinary discussions and provide a forum to future research directions. Within this context, PACON-2019 is based around 11 overlapping themes:

  • Ocean dynamics and climate

  • Marine geology and geological resources

  • Ocean environment and ecosystem
