Submitting an ePoster


Should your ePoster be accepted to EIMR2022 you can expect to make a 3 minute presentation. There will be a facility for delegates to view your ePoster and ask questions over the course of the conference. More detail on the format and structure of the conference will follow closer to the conference.   

ePoster submissions will only be accepted using the online form - the closing date is 13th  July 2022. ePosters will be reviewed and chosen for the conference by the EIMR Scientific Advisory Committee.

We encourage and welcome submissions on themes related to the interactions of marine renewables and the environment. Interactions may be positive or negative, and encapsulate;

  • the effects of marine renewable energy developments on the physical environment, habitats, organisms, or human populations, and
  • the effects of the physical environment, habitats, organisms, or human populations on development siting, performance, or longevity.

ePosters should be relevant to one or more of: wave energy, tidal stream energy, tidal range energy or floating offshore wind. Pertinent insights from other offshore industries are also welcome.

Relevant topics may include (but are not limited to):

  • Resource assessment
  • Tools or frameworks to generate evidence for consenting and reducing consenting risk
  • Advances and challenges for marine policy
  • Social license to operate: legitimacy, credibility and trust in planning and consenting processes
  • Innovative or new monitoring technologies and techniques 
  • Presence, abundance, and behaviour of animals around devices
  • Far field and cumulative effects
  • Ecology of high energy locations
  • Artificial reefs and biofouling communities
  • Intersection with climate change and climate variability
  • Environmental impacts on devices/engineering considerations for environmental interactions (e.g. bio-fouling, corrosion, and abrasion by sediments).
  • Grid-scale vs community-scale marine renewables
  • Multi-use platforms and co-location with other industries
  • Challenges of, and applying the lessons learnt, in scaling up from single devices to arrays
  • Environmental lessons from demonstrator sites and commercial developments
  • Challenges in data transferability from one site to another and the generalisation of data and results between sites and species
  • Private interests v. public rights – balancing benefits in blue spaces
  • The role of marine renewables in a just energy transition
