The next European Cetacean Society (http://www.europeancetaceansociety.eu/home.php) conference will take place at the University of Liège (Aquarium-Museum of Liège), organised jointly by the Laboratory of Oceanology and the Department of Veterinary Pathology, from Saturday the 5th of April to Wednesday the 9th of April 2014. Different Belgian universities and institutions will be also associated to this event.

The University of Liege hosted the ECS conference in 2002, and the last four ECS conferences took place in Stralsund (Germany, 2010), Cadiz (Spain, 2011), Galway (Ireland, 2012) and Setubal (Portugal, 2013) and attracted both scientists and media attention. 

The theme for 2014 shall be: «Marine mammals as sentinels of a changing environment» in order to present the consequences of Global Change on these species as well as the principal dangers that threaten their future. Marine mammals, most of which are threatened by human activities (e.g. pollution, fishing), occupy an important position in our marine ecosystems and deserve all our attention.
