EuroGOOS International Conference: Operational Oceanography serving sustainable marine development

The EuroGOOS international conference takes place every three years. The conference provides a forum for a broad range of implementers and users of operational oceanography services, including marine scientists and technologists, private companies, and policymakers. The conference reviews the present ocean monitoring and forecasting capacities and oceanographic services, and identifies new science and technology priorities.

4th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference - Call for Workshops

The 4th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference (ASCP2017) will take place on 8 November 2017 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

The annual Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference is the central hub for stakeholders of the Atlantic Strategy to make valuable contacts and explore areas for cooperation, share information and good practices, promote and identify interesting project ideas, as well as funding opportunities and partnerships for their projects.

OCB 2017 Summer Workshop

The OCB Summer School will take place this year at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. Taking place over the course of four days, the event will consist of five talks on varying topics. The content of the talks are the following:


Thirteenth MEDCOAST Congress on Coastal and Marine Sciences, Engineering, Management & Conservation (MEDCOAST 17)

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 for The Ocean Conference: Guidelines for Organizers Now Available

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.

52nd European Marine Biology Symposium

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.

EGU 2017 Marine Related Conference Sessions

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.

Third International Conference 'the Molecular life of diatoms:Convergent approaches between biogeochemistry and genomics to better understand and model biogeochemical cycles'

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.
