Accepted Panels

The list below shows all panels that have been accepted to be part of the conference program.

Open panels have participant slots remaining, meaning you can apply to the panel convener with your paper.

Closed panels have already reached their maximum number of participants and can therefore not accept further applications. Pre-confirmed participants (whose papers were already included in the panel proposal) do not have to apply and can register directly on the main EuroSEAS website.

More information about the panels can be found inside the PDF documents accessible from each panel page. Please note that this list is subject to change.
