We are delighted to announce that we will start an online series of open seminars and discussions starting in June 2021 to address the grand challenge of predicting harmful algal blooms. This monthly series will be delivered by six experts and the topics will cover size-based models, acclimation models, model validation, and machine learning etc. The detailed schedule is listed below.

GlobalHAB symposium on automated in situ observations of plankton

Due to the worldwide Covid-19 crisis this activity has been postponed to June 2022.

The aim of the mini-symposium is to bring together experts on, and users of, automated in situ imaging systems, novel sampling equipment, etc. to present methods, and compare results of quantitative analysis of plankton communities. More information will be presented here later. The persons who registered their interest for participating in 2020 will receive information via e-mail. Others should watch this space for new information late 2021 or early 2022.
