CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE! On behalf of the scientific and organising committees and our sponsors, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Dublin for the 54th European Marine Biology Symposium. The EMBS was initiated in Germany in 1960 and has been held annually since 1966. It has a great tradition as a forum for discussing exciting new developments in marine biology in a friendly informal atmosphere, and celebrating the diversity of research cultures in Europe and around the world. We hope this year’s conference will carry that tradition forward in style and look forward to meeting you and enjoying the coming days together. We have a great programme of talks and posters spanning a wide spectrum of fascinating species, habitats and approaches and addressing a range of important concepts and topics. As you know, our core themes this year revolve around rapid change, movement, blue growth and functional traits and we also have a wonderful set of presentations in the general sessions. In keeping with EMBS tradition, we have no parallel sessions. We encourage you to attend all of the talks and poster sessions and engage with topics that you may not yet have thought about, but which could prove to be intriguing and inspirational. We hope you will also take the time to visit our exhibitors’ stands and learn more about what they have to offer. The main venue for the conference is University College Dublin, which is Ireland’s largest university and the conference dinner will be held at Trinity College Dublin, which is its oldest. Both are set in Ireland’s capital city, which traces its origins to Viking, Gaelic and early Christian settlements in the 9th century, over a thousand years ago. It is a city with a close relationship with the sea and a well-deserved reputation for its warm welcome and cultural richness. As part of your experience here, the conference dinner will be followed by a traditional céilí dance and, among other things, the Yellow Submarine competition will give you a chance to try your hand at hurling, a great Irish sport. Our excursions provide a good opportunity to explore the Dublin Bay Biosphere and the historic monastic settlement at Glendalough in the nearby Wicklow Hills. Maybe some of you will also be heading off to explore further afield in Ireland. However you spend your time, we sincerely hope you will have a great time.

USEFUL INFORMATION Keep an eye out for our conference staff in the blue t-shirts who will be happy to help with any questions you might have. You can also read our Useful Information Guides at embs.ucd.ie for lots more useful information!

EMBS VENUE UCD O’Brien Centre for Science University College Dublin Belfield, Dublin 4 Ireland Email: earth.institute@ucd.ie Telephone: +353 1 87 369 5394 (Will Fitzmaurice, Organising Committee)

INTERNET ACCESS Free wifi is available on the UCD Campus through the UCD Wireless network and Eduroam.

TRANSPORT UCD by bus Main routes to UCD are 39a, 46a and 145; there is usually a bus every few minutes on one or other of these routes. The total journey time from city centre to UCD campus, including waiting at the bus stop, is usually less than 30 minutes. The fare from the city centre to UCD is €3, and bus fares are paid directly to the driver in coins, with no change given. A good alternative would be to buy a Leap card (which gives discounted fares and is more convenient) – available from the airport, some railway stations and other outlets, including local shops: www.leap.ie Public transport apps TFI Journey Planner Dublin Bus UCD by taxi Taxis are also readily accessible at most times of day and the fare from the city centre should be less than 15 euro. You can use an app such as Free Now, which will call a taxi to wherever you are waiting. Getting to and from the airport Dublin Airport is located about 12 km north of the city centre. There is no rail connection. There are city

18


buses, but the best option is the Air Coach (www.aircoach.ie). It picks up passengers outside Terminals 1 and 2. Tickets are on sale at small booths outside the terminals. There are several routes, so make sure you get on the right bus – ask the ticket seller or driver for advice if necessary. The 700 route to Sandyford/Leopardstown stops at several places in the city centre and at each of the hotels mentioned on the EMBS54 website that are closer to UCD. It runs every 15 minutes, except between 0025 and 0325 when it runs every 30 mins; it takes about 30 mins to get to the city centre, 45 mins to UCD. Taxis are also available and cost approximately 30 euro to the city centre.

EMERGENCIES In case of an emergency of any kind, please contact the Registration/Helpdesk in the main atrium. Whilst on the UCD campus, the Campus Emergency Telephone Number is +353 1 716 7999, whilst off campus the Fire/Ambulance and Emergency Number is 999.

A céilí, a traditional Irish form of set dancing, will be held from 22.00 in the Atrium adjacent to the Dining Hall all conference delegates are welcome and encouraged to attend!

EXCURSIONS Buses to our excursions will depart from UCD at 14.00 on Thursday 29 August and will return to the city centre afterwards. A limited number of tickets for the Glendalough excursion are available for €20 from the Registration/Helpdesk.

EXHIBITORS We’re delighted to welcome Fluid Imaging Technologies Inc., LifeWatch-ERIC, NHBS and Springer-Verlag. Our exhibitors will be giving a flashtalk about their organisations on Monday afternoon - be sure to visit their stands in the atrium beside the main lecture theatre during the lunch and coffee breaks!
