The Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA), the University of Mauritius, Reduit and the Nairobi Convention would like to extend a warm and hearty welcome to all delegates attending the 11th WIOMSA Scientific Symposium. We hope that your stay in Mauritius will be fruitful and enjoyable.


WIOMSA’s 11th Scientific Symposium will be held at the University of Mauritius, in Reduit. A number of accommodation options are available in Reduit and the surrounding area. Transport will be provided for participants staying in designated symposium hotels.

The opening ceremony and plenary sessions will be held in the Paul Octave Wiehe Auditorium abbreviated as POWA, one of the largest public conference halls in Mauritius which can host up to 550 delegates in a plenary configuration. The parallel sessions and mini-symposiums will be held in Lecture Theatre I and Lecture Theatre II, which can each accommodate 150 delegates, and in Lecture Rooms G1, G2, G3, G4,

G5 and G6, which can each accommodate 50-75 delegates in a theatre-style configuration. The posters will be displayed at the Raised Plaza, a covered exhibition area found just outside the Lecture Rooms, next to the New Academic Complex. Exhibits will be displayed in the corridor spaces of the Paul Octave Wiehe Auditorium itself during the whole duration of the Symposium. Stand up tea breaks will be placed inside the Auditorium itself. Lunches will be served seated in a covered marquee of 550 seating capacity.
