Welcome to the press information pages of the 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL We are very pleased that you are interested in this most important conference on coral reef ecosystems worldwide.

Unfortunately, due to the corona crisis, the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS) could not take place in July 2020 as planned. The 14th ICRS 2021 will now be held purely virtually from July 19-23, 2021. Further information can be found here.

You will find all important information about this conference, our accompanying program for the public and extensive background information on the current situation and biology of coral reefs. Of course, media are also available for download. Since the symposium has been postponed, many dates of our accompanying program will also change. Please understand that not all new dates are fixed yet.



The latest news about the conference and coral reef ecosystems can be found here.
