The 7th European Conference on Scientific Diving (ECSD7) will be held in Roscoff, France, from April 25 to April 29, 2022.

‘Scientific Diving in a changing underwater world : findings and foresights’

This edition is organized under the auspices of the French National Committee for Scientific Diving, and hosted by the Station Biologique de Roscoff.

A particular focus will be given during ECSD7 on diving-based scientific researches, case-studies and methods that aim at better understand and document the impacts of global changes on freshwater and coastal marine ecosystems, or are helpful for their conservation/restoration. Particular attention will be paid to natural habitats of special concerns for the EU (such as those listed in Natura 2000) and to artificial environments (wrecks, artificial reefs, MRE devices…).

Communications underlining the usefulness and added-value of scientific diving in this context, and discussing diving-based monitoring methods, in particular with regards to innovative underwater tools and techniques, are welcome (Changing tools, methods, practices and goals?).
