This international gathering, organized by the Society for Marine Mammalogy, rallies researchers, students and professionals from around the globe to share their knowledge on cetaceans, pinnipeds, and other marine mammals. This year it will be held in San Francisco. In 1981, the 4th edition of the Conference was held there.

This week, participants will present hundreds of lectures, oral presentations, posters, workshops, etc. on the latest scientific advances in the world of marine mammals.

The 22nd Conference will take place from October 23 to 27, 2017 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
