The AzSS – Azores Summer School follows the need and ambition to create a complete, high-quality multidisciplinary course on Marine Island (Palaeo)Biogeography, gathering internationally recognized experts to present state-of-the-art knowledge in diverse areas.

The first edition of the AzSS will be held at Santa Maria Island (Azores Archipelago, Portugal) from 7 to 16 of July 2022, aiming to grow in the next years into the most complete and unique course on Marine Island (Palaeo)Biogeography worldwide. For 11 days, participants will experience life at the oldest island of the Azores and be able to observe in loco the results of more than 20 years of fieldwork at Santa Maria. The AzSS 2022 integrates lectures, symposia, and field trips, benefiting from the extraordinary geological diversity of the island and expertise of the invited lecturers.
