Corals are not only to be found in tropical reefs but also in the deep sea and in higher latitudes. They are the foundation for a variety of biological networks, ecosystems and not only beautiful to look at but really important to be conserved! In 2020 the 14th ICRS will be held in the city of Bremen, northern Germany and hosted by the University of Bremen in cooperation with many local marine science institutes. It is an exciting event that shares most current research to a broad audience and is worth supporting. The website is already online in preparation for a big scientific get-together July 2020.
