2017 Early Career Scientists Conference: Climate, Oceans and Society Challenges & Opportunities

To encourage the participation of young scientists in international scientific investigations and to promote their involvement in the management and stewardship of the marine environment, the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) and the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) are co-organizing a conference for Early Career Scientists in Busan, Republic of Korea, in late-May-June.

7th International Symposium on GIS/Spatial Analyses in Fishery and Aquatic Sciences

The primary objectives of the Seventh Symposium are: to highlight developments and applications of GIS/Spatial analyses in Fishery and Aquatic Sciences; to exchange ideas and information; and to suggest further improvements, techniques and applications of GIS/Spatial analyses in Fishery and Aquatic Sciences.

The conference organisers are requesting themes for the Seventh Symposium. 

WOC Sustainable Ocean Summit

SOS 2016 will address the 2016-2030 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and what they mean for the ocean business community, and advance the development of SDG targets and indicators being developed with and for the Ocean Business Community via the WOC during 2016.

Ocean Industry Status, Trends and 15-Year Projections Will Be Presented at World Ocean Council’s SOS 2016 (Rotterdam, 30 Nov-2 Dec).

There are 5 proposed Plenary sessions:

DEVOTES Final Conference Marine Biodiversity, the key to healthy and productive seas

DEVOTES (DEVelopment Of innovative Tools for understanding marine biodiversity and assessing good Environmental Status) aims to better understand the relationships between pressures from human activities and climate and their effects on marine ecosystems. The objectives of the DEVOTES Final Conference is to bring together policy and private stakeholders from the marine field, to present the project results, discuss the project perspectives and provide key recommendations and inputs from DEVOTES researchers.

International Conference on Molluscan Shellfish Safety (ICMSS)

ICMSS2017 will be hosted by The Marine Institute, Galway, in association with Bord Iascaigh Mhara, The Food Safety Authority of Ireland, The Sea Fisheries Protection Authority, The Irish Shellfish Association and National University of Ireland in the Bailey Allen Hall in NUI Galway.  This is the 11th conference in this series and offers an important multidisciplinary interface between regulatory, scientific and industrial representatives of the international molluscan food safety community.  It is a biannual forum where unusual, emerging and novel shellfish risk factors are

2nd International Conference of Marine Fungal Natural Products (MaFNaP) 2017

Save the date - the GEOMAR Centre for Marine Biotechnology (GEOMAR-Biotech) at Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany) are organising the 2nd International Conference of Marine Fungal Natural Products (MaFNaP) that will be held in Kiel (Germany) from 27-29 June 2017. This event aims at gathering an international consortium to discuss new developments and approaches within the field of marine fungal research.

International Symposium: Drivers of Dynamics of Small Pelagic Fish Resources

The goal of the 2017 symposium is to revitalize global international cooperation on investigations of SPF and to identify, discuss and develop a framework to address unanswered questions such as the impact of climate and/or fishing pressure on the resilience of small pelagic populations using a comparative approach. Because of the importance of environmental and anthropogenic drivers on small pelagic resources, the participation of experts in physical oceanography, climate, and socio-economics is essential.

Registration and abstract submission is open.

1st EKLIPSE conference - save the date

To present the first outputs of EKLIPSE, identify further knowledge needs with respect to biodiversity in the context of nature-based solutions and to further develop our joint networking, EKLIPSE will organise jointly with partners including BiodivERsA and EPBRS a series of workshops and conferences from 6th to 8th of December in Brussels – you will receive further information on this in due time – but save the date if your network is interested in attending.
