Welcome to the registration for the 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL

The 14th International Coral Reef Symposium will be the first virtual event in the more than 50-years history of the ICRS held this summer from July 19-22, 2021.

Get an overview of the freshest coral reef research!
On top of that, we archive all posters and oral presentations for an entire year after the 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL. You can take your time to view presentations in a relaxed atmosphere and without any time pressure. Thus, you will not miss any oral or poster presentations. This is a clear added value of the 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL compared to previous ICRS and other large international conferences with typically many sessions running at the same time.
