The biennial MEDCOAST congress in Malta is the thirteenth event of the series that was started in 1993 for contributing to coastal and marine sciences, engineering, management and conservation in general and particularly for the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Since the first conference in 1993 (Antalya, Turkey), the MEDCOAST conference series has moved around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, visiting Taragona (Spain), Qawra (Malta), Antalya (Turkey), Hammamet (Tunisia), Ravenna (Italy), Kusadasi (Turkey), Alexandria (Egypt), Sochi (Russia), Rhodes (Greece), Marmaris (Turkey) and Varn
Side events sponsored by Member States, UN system and other Inter-Governmental Organizations as well as Major Groups and other stake holders, will be organized daily at the UN Headquarters in New York, in the margins of the official meetings of the Ocean Conference. The proposed side event should be closely related to the overarching theme of the Conference “Our oceans, our future: partnering for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14”. The side event should constitute a potential contribution to the outcome of the Ocean Conference.
From 25 to 29 September 2017, the National Institute of Biology, Marine Biology Station Piran (Slovenia) will host the 52nd European Marine Biology Symposium (EMBS). European Marine Biology Symposium (EMBS) has a long-standing history and tradition being organised annually for more than half of a century under MARS Network. The 52nd EMBS will gather marine scientists with a common interest in Marine symbiosis, Imaging in marine biology, Benthic-pelagic coupling, Marine metagenomics and General session.
The European Geosciences Union General Assembly will be held between the 23rd-28th April 2016 in Vienna, Austria. The EGU General Assembly 2017 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
Submission of abstracts is now open.
A one day session, as part of the 3rd international conference 'The Molecular Life of Diatoms' in July 2015, will focus on convergent approaches between biogeochemistry and genomics to better understand and model biogeochemical cycles. The conference will see junior and senior scientists of interdisciplinary science fields come together to discuss these topics. New molecular and bioinformatics tools to disseminate the potential of the dynamic and rapidly evolving field of marine molecular/genomic research will be discussed.
