The Tenth International Conference on Recirculating Aquaculture (ICRA) is requesting abstracts for papers to be presented in Roanoke on August 22-23, 2014. In addition to publishing a 1-2 page abstract in the conference proceedings, authors will share their research through an oral presentation or as a poster.

For consideration, the submission deadline has been extended, abstracts (1-2 pages in length) must be received no later than Wednesday, April 11, 2014. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified about acceptance for the conference by April 15, 2014. Abstracts will be edited in-house and published in a volume of proceedings which will be available at the conference.

Conference organizers have identified the following possible session topics:

Algae culture

In addition to these identified topic sessions, other sessions will be formed based upon abstracts received; hence we encourage submissions on any topic related to recirculating aquaculture.
