Geohab 2023

The next annual GeoHab (Marine Geological and Biological
Habitat Mapping) conference will be held in Saint-Gilles-Les-
La Réunion island (Indian Ocean) from May 8 to 12th 2023


GeoHab (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying and mapping geophysical, biophysical and geomorphic indicators of benthic communities, species diversity and distribution. The GeoHab association will hold its 2023 annual conference for the first time in Africa, on the
French island of La Réunion, from Monday May 8 to Friday May 12.

This annual conference typically attracts approximately 120-150 scientists and professionals including biologists, geologists, environmental scientists, spatial analysts, technologists, geophysicists and environmental advisors from around the world, providing a unique multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas that underpin sustainable ocean management.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend and student grants will be available (see the ‘Student support’ section for more details).

GeoHab is presently in its 21st year and has produced many publications and contributions to the development of this field through different working groups. The conference will be an in-person meeting with a video virtual link for attendees to log in, but all oral and poster presentations will only be permitted in person.
