APECS Online Conference 2018

The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is proud to announce the 4th annual APECS International Online Conference to be live-streamed on 16 May 2018. This year’s theme, “Butterfly Effect: Small Changes, Big Impact,” challenges polar scientists to communicate the impacts of changes occurring in and connected to polar and alpine regions, including their environment, local communities, science methods, and policy and education.

Fourth Xiamen Symposium on Marine Environmental Sciences

The fourth iteration of the Xiamen Symposium on Marine Environmental Sciences will be held in Xiamen from January 6th to 9th, 2019. The symposium will consist of different, interconnected sessions covering physical oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, biological oceanography, and marine ecotoxicology along with workshops for emerging topics in marine environmental sciences.

More information on the event will follow in the coming months.

Accelerating Blue Growth through Marine and Maritime Knowledge Transfer

The COLUMBUS project has demonstrated how it is possible to capitalise on the European Commission’s significant investment in marine and maritime research by ensuring accessibility and uptake of research Knowledge Outputs by end-users: policy, industry, science and wider society. This has been achieved by developing and applying a specifically tailored process to identify, analyse and transfer promising outputs from funded research projects.

Gordon Research Conferences on Ocean Biogeochemistry

Hong Kong University of Science and Technology will host the 2018 Biogeochemistry of Marine Interfaces conference from 8-13 July. 

The 2018 GRC on Ocean Biogeochemistry will focus on processes that occur at and between marine interfaces. Oral and poster presentations and discussions will address, without being limited to, biogeochemical fluxes between the atmosphere and the ocean; between the surface, intermediate, and deep waters; and between the deep ocean, the seafloor and the sub-seafloor. Socio-economic aspects will also be considered.

4th CLimate Impacts on Oceanic TOp Predators Symposium

The 4th CLimate Impacts on Oceanic TOp Predators (CLIOTOP) Symposium will take place in Keelung, Taiwan in 2018. Entitled 'Oceanic biodiversity under climate change: shifts in natural and human systems', the symposium will seek to evaluate responses to, and impacts of, climate variability and change on marine top predator species and their food chains, alongside identifying risk assessment and evaluation tools that incorporate these variabilities for improved sustainable resource management, amongst other objectives.
