The course is aimed at participants who have some years of practical experience in identification of microalgae.
Deadline for applications: 1 April 2017.
COURSE OBJECTIVES The course will give the participants a basic knowledge of methodology and taxonomic principles for the study of marine phytoplankton including potentially harmful species. The course will focus on species common in the Gulf region and in the Western Indian Ocean. It aims at both university students and monitoring personnel.
Dates: Mandatory E-learning part over 4-5 weeks in the period May-July. Practical course 7-17 August 2016. Optional workshops on enumeration/culture techniques from 18-20 August.
Venue: IOC Science and Communication Centre on Harmful Algae, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
The Provasoli-Guillard National Center for Marine Algae and Microbiota (NCMA) will be offering an Algal Culturing Techniques Course May 15-20, 2016. The course will be held at the new Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences Research and Education campus in East Boothbay, ME. The course is designed for graduate students, faculty members, aquaculturists, biotech professionals and anyone else interested in learning algal culturing techniques.

We are pleased to announce a four-day workshop Plankton resting stages: ecological, evolutionary and geological perspectives, to be held at the Tvärminne Zoological Station, Hanko Peninsula, Finland, on Oct 5-8, 2015.
Plankton resting stages – geological, ecological and evolutionary perspectivesbrings together geologists, paleoecologists, ecologists and geneticists who approach plankton resting stages from diverging perspectives and ordinarily work in isolation from each other. The workshop aims at presenting the extent of research lines and bringing forward joint targets for development and interest.

The Advanced Course on Cyanobacteria and Cyanotoxins, that will take place in Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) coming June 29th to 4th July.
This course is funded by NILS and CYANOCOST and will provide fellowships for most of the trainees and it is a good opportunity to disseminate the cyano-problems and to help making a new generation of cyanobacteriologists.

The course aims to train researchers from academia and industry, in theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the establishment, characterization and maintenance of algal cultures in order to gain an advanced understanding of algal diversity, life cycle and physiology.
This short course will focus on marine macroalgae, or seaweeds, and is
designed to introduce taxonomic, systematic, physiological, and ecological
aspects of Maine seaweeds.
Mandatory E-learning part over 4-5 weeks in the period May-July. Practical course 9-19 August 2015. Optional workshops on enumeration/culture techniques from 19-22 August. Venue: IOC Science and Communication Centre on Harmful Algae, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
