EMODnet Stakeholder Conference: Stress tests on marine data - Towards a European Ocean Observing System

The Conference aims to mobilise a wide group of interested stakeholders to consider joint issues, present common findings as well as highlighting differences between the Sea-basins as identified by the EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints in terms of existing and future monitoring and observation activities, data availability and usefulness to address real problems.

The main objectives of the EMODnet Checkpoints Stakeholder Conference are to:

4th Coastal and Maritime Mediterranean Conference CM2

The fourth Coastal & Maritime Mediterranean Conference CM2 follows up the third Coastal & Maritime Mediterranean Conference held in Ferrara (Italy) in 2015 planned by the Centre Français du Littoral and Pôle Mer Méditerranée but with a stress on corporation activity and intended for both French-speaking and non French-speaking Mediterranean countries. The management of the conference is conducted in parallel with the host country: Croatia in 2017. 

14th Marine Biological Association Postgraduate Conference

The 14th Annual Marine Biological Association (MBA) Postgraduate Conference will be hosted by the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus in Cornwall, from 24 -28th April 2017. 

In line with the aims of the MBA, the conference promotes research on all aspects of marine life and environment. It is run by postgraduates, for postgraduates, including Masters and PhD students, and provides opportunities to:

The 49th International Liege colloquium on Ocean Dynamics

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.

SAME15 - 15th Symposium on Aquatic Microbial Ecology

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.

COMMON SENSE Final Event: Demonstration of Next Generation Sensors for Advanced Real-Time Ocean Observation

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.
