Montpellier is the regional capital of “Languedoc-Roussillon” in the south of France. Located just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean coast, it is home to many of France's most important research institutes which focus on marine and aquaculture related research. Several significant Universities and Research Institutes are located in Montpellier.
One of the main research institutes involved in the organizing committee is IRD, Institut de recherche pour le Développement. IRD, Ifremer (Insitut Français de recherche pour l'exploitation de la mer,) and the University of Montpellier, are members of the Center for research on Mediterranean and tropical fisheries (CRH) located in the town of Sète, an important fishing port near Montpellier.
IRD performs research and manages scientific programmes centred on the relations between man and his environment in the tropics.
