From decade to decade, enormous progress is achieved in our understanding of marine turbulence. A major trigger of this progress is the technological development of oceanic instrumentation, numerical modeling and theory. For the instruments, higher sampling rates, larger data storages and faster data processing facilities generally allow for better resolution, but also open perspectives for novel mechanical, acoustical and optical devices. For the numerical modeling, steadily growing computer resources allow for substantially more complex models and higher resolution than a decade ago.
The 15th Symposium on Aquatic Microbial Ecology (SAME) will take place this year from September 3rd-8th. Following on from the success of the first EMBO Conference on Aquatic Microbial Ecology (SAME13), the event will be hosted in Zagreb, Croatia.
These biannual conferences have developed into the most appreciated worldwide meeting in aquatic microbial ecology and gather a multidisciplinary group of delegates with a common interest in the ecology, diversity, evolution and biogeochemical function of microorganisms in lakes, oceans and other aquatic systems.
The 3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting, which will take place in Brno, Czech Republic, from May 24 till May 26, 2017.
The COMMON SENSE project will host a demonstration event and final partner meeting in Barcelona, Spain on the 27 January 2017.
The conference, entitled ‘Demonstration of Next Generation Sensors for Advanced Real-Time Ocean Observation’, is a unique event that marks the end of the COMMON SENSE project which was launched in November 2013. The project was funded to directly respond to the requirement for integrated and effective data acquisition systems by developing innovative sensors that will contribute to our understanding of how the marine environment functions.
GeoBremen 2017, organized by the Deutsche Mineralogische Gesellschaft (DMG) and the Deutsche Geologische Gesellschaft – Geologische Vereinigung (DGGV), will provide a multidisciplinary stage with a focus on the exciting themes and topics of the Earth and Material Sciences of the 21st century.
The 2017 mid-year meeting of The Crustacean Society (TCS) will be organized by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and University of Barcelona (UB) and will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from 19th to 22nd June 2017. The symposium with already some decades of existence will give particular emphasis to the areas historically covered by the TCS meetings (ecology, fisheries, larvae, taxonomy, among many others topics). The meeting will also include the “11th Colloquium Crustacea Decapoda Mediterranea” and the “5th Crustacean Larval Conference”.
The Open Science Meeting (OSM) and the associated Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) are the premier scientific events of Past Global Changes (PAGES), a core project of Future Earth and a scientific partner of the World Climate Research Programme. The OSM is an international and multi-disciplinary platform for sharing latest research results on past global changes and the venue for discussing and defining the role of past global change science in the coming years
BIOPROSP is held every two years with a focus on bioprospecting from marine environments. It takes place in the capital of the Arctic world, a university town in northern Norway called Tromsø. The conference was first organized in 2002 and over the past 14 years has become one of the most knowledge-rich conferences in the field of marine bioprospecting, attracting top talent from Europe and abroad. The next BIOPROSP Conference will take place 8-10 March 2017, at UiT - The Arctic University of Norway.
The Ecosystem Studies of Subarctic and Arctic Seas (ESSAS) is a regional program of the Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) project. Its objectives are to understand how climate variability and climate change affect the marine ecosystems of Subarctic and Arctic seas and their sustainability, and in turn, how changes in these marine ecosystems affect humans.
Arctic Futures brings together people from a wide variety of backgrounds who have an interest in the Arctic. The Symposium is an annual event which promises insight and dialogue on current issues facing the Arctic. This years symposium focuses on the future of sustainable Arctic communities as well as highlighting the achievements of the Arctic Council as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.
There is no registration fee, but all participants interested in attending this year's Arctic Futures Symposium must register prior to the event.
