The ‘Be Smart, Think Blue’ Conference and Brokerage Event 2016 is a two part event taking place in the beautiful Polish city of Gdansk on the 19th and 20th September 2016. The event offers the full range of stakeholders in the area of marine and maritime research the opportunity to interact with the Smart Blue Regions initiative (19th September 2016) and to establish contacts with potential partners to address open calls for Blue Growth research proposals in Horizon 2020 (20th September 2016). The event is free of charge.
The IMDIS 2016 Conference will be organised in four sessions:
1. Data Services in ocean science
- Standards and quality-assurance issues
- Services and Visualisation tools
- User oriented services
2. Marine information and data management
The 51st European Marine Biology Symposium will take place in Rhodes, Greece, from 26 to 30 September 2016, organized by the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research and the University of Athens.
- Climate change
- Marine invasions
- Transitional waters
- Open session
Registration is open until 5 September 2016.
Distinguishing between natural and anthropogenic control factors and quantifying their impacts is a major challenge in the investigation of hydrodynamic, sedimentological, biogeochemical, ecological and socioeconomic processes in the coastal zone.
Inter- and transdisciplinary efforts are required to gain a profound understanding of these "novel" systems, which provides the basis for a sustainable management.
On 8 September 2016, MEP Ricardo Serrão Santos is hosting an EOOS event at the European Parliament entitled ‘Building a European Ocean Observing System’. This event will be the first dedicated conference on EOOS and will help laying its foundation.
The 10th anniversary International Carbon Dioxide Conference will provide participants with an integrated, interdisciplinary view of the global carbon cycle and its perturbation by humans.
The ICES Annual Science Conference 2016 brings the international marine science community together to share innovative science. Scientists, policy- and decision-makers, students, and stakeholders are all invited to join the discussions on science for sustainable seas. One of the important and unique features of ICES is its capacity to cover the entire spectrum from monitoring to data provision to science and advice.
18 theme sessions will take place at this year's conference. For more information on the theme sessions and conference content follow the links below.
The AMEMR (Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research) Conference provides an opportunity to present, discuss and learn about a wide variety of marine modelling challenges, methods, applications and outcomes.
AMEMR has a strong focus on promoting interdisciplinary discussion among scientists and students with different backgrounds and expertise (from modelling to experimental to observational scientists) who want to contribute to the conceptualisation, design, development and application of improved and new marine ecosystem models.
The International Association for Sediment Water Science (IASWS), bringing together a wide range of researchers from different disciplines, seeks to promote, encourage and recognize excellence in scientific research related to sediments and their interactions with water and biota in fluvial, lacustrine and marine systems and with particular reference to problems of environmental concern. This symposium provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussions with the aim of better integrating knowledge of the biological, physical and chemical processes between sediments and water.
The NET-SCARCE International Conference will be held on 15-16 November 2016 in Barcelona (Spain). This conference is part of the project NET-SCARCE, which in turn is the follow-up to the project SCARCE (Assessing and predicting effects on water quantity and quality in Iberian rivers caused by global change).
