The International Iberian Seminar on Marine Chemistry (SIQUIMAR), started in Cadiz in 1983 and is held every two years. Since 2012 takes place simultaneously with the International Symposium on Marine Sciences, ISMS. The Seminar brings together a Spanish and Portuguese chemical scientists involved in ocean and coastal processes but open to other Iberoamerican and European scientists. Previous SIQUIMAR editions were held in other locations – Cádiz, Vigo, Aveiro, Faro, Lisboa, A Coruña, Las Palmas, Alicante, Vigo, Barcelona – with a deep maritime tradition and high activity in marine research.
In its XXI edition, SIQUIMAR returns to the Canary Islands, to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the first place where a Marine Science Faculty was stablished in Spain in 1982, islands with a strong marine and maritime activity with several marine research centers (Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Universidad de La Laguna, PLOCAN, IEO-CSIC-COC). In addition of being an open forum to present results and exchange viewpoints, SIQUIMAR is an ideal framework to explore new lines of research, identify common interests and establish synergies as the seed of new collaborative projects.
Following previous lines of action, the symposium will bring marine chemical scientists of multidisciplinary research activities related with Chemical Oceanography, Biogeochemical processes studies, Tracers in the Ocean, Marine Ecotoxicology and Pollution and Global Change related processes. The organizing committee encourages marine researchers and those who show a multidisciplinary profile to present the results of their best work to any of these sections.
