The second edition of the IMBeR Ocean Science Conference will take place in Brest, France, from 17-21 June 2018. The event will aim to build on the significant success of the first edition of the event, and build on the themes established. The committee assembled for this conference have backgrounds in multiple areas, and come from institutes and universities situated all across Europe.
In addition to delivering an update of the pertinent science, Future Oceans2 will foster productive inter-and trans-disciplinary discussions and provide a forum to strategically map future research directions. Within this context, Future Oceans2 is based around three interlinked themes:
- Theme 1. Understanding and quantifying the state and variability of marine ecosystems;
- Theme 2. Improving scenarios, predictions and projections of future ocean-human systems at multiple scales; and
- Theme 3. Improving and achieving sustainable ocean governance.
Future Oceans2 will be an exciting mix of talks (up to 10 concurrent sessions each day), posters, workshops, focus groups, world cafés, and other innovative formats to engage delegates. The conference will be preceded by two days of workshops.
The conference is currently accepting abstracts and registration, please see the relevant links for more information. The deadline for abstract submission is 1 December 2018.
