The 10th International Marine Technician, INMARTECH 2016, Symposium will be held at Grieghallen, in Bergen, Norway 4.- 6.October 2016. INMARTECH symposia were initiated with the purpose of providing a forum for marine technicians to meet and exchange knowledge and experiences, thereby aiming to improve equipment performance, deployment, and operational techniques during scientific cruises on research vessels.
Below is a list of some of the topics currently under consideration for this year's meeting:
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.
