Preliminary program:

The theme of ICAIS 2022 is Global Climate Change Amplifies Aquatic Invasive Species Impacts, to demonstrate the interconnectedness of invasive species issues and inspire international collaboration on research projects at a global scale.

The program includes a wide range of presentations that address aquatic invasive species (AIS) issues in freshwater and marine environments to benefit managers, practitioners and other stakeholders worldwide.

ICAIS 2022 is a hybrid event involving sessions that integrate in-person and virtual presentations. All registrants, whether attending the conference in-person or virtually, will be able to participate fully by seeing presentations as delivered in real-time, interacting with the speakers through facilitated Q&A, and networking with other attendees.

  • Keynote plenary presentations by seven leading international scientists.
  • Four concurrent sessions each day.
  • A special session addressing research at the intersection of climate change, disease, and AIS.
  • A session honoring the legacy of Dr. Olaf Weyl through presentations by former students and collaborators on Olaf’s key interest: invasion biology and understanding how humans alter and benefit from aquatic systems.
  • A workshop to share knowledge and experiences of how COVID-19 impacted working in aquatic systems and management of AIS.
