SACS 2016

International Expert Seminar on the Continental Shelf

In June 2014 an in-depth seminar on intricate legal and technical aspects that relate to the regime of the continental shelf and its resources, tutored by leading international experts, was launched in the Faroe Islands. SACS 2014 and 2015 gathered together students, researchers, diplomats and representatives from academia from all continents.

While the subjects being taught in 2016 SACS will have some adjustments, with focus on particular items, it remains a forum to discuss amongst leading international experts all legal and technical matters relating to the continental shelf.

SACS 2016 will be held under the auspices of the University of the Faroe Islands during 19 – 25 June 2016.
