ECSA 56 – Coastal systems in transition from a ‘natural’ to an ‘anthropogenically modified’ state

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.

ICES Annual Science Conference

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.

Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research Conference 2017

The AMEMR (Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research) Conference provides an opportunity to present, discuss and learn about a wide variety of marine modelling challenges, methods, applications and outcomes.

AMEMR has a strong focus on promoting interdisciplinary discussion among scientists and students with different backgrounds and expertise (from modelling to experimental to observational scientists) who want to contribute to the conceptualisation, design, development and application of improved and new marine ecosystem models.

14th International Symposium on the Interactions between Sediments and Water

The International Association for Sediment Water Science (IASWS), bringing together a wide range of researchers from different disciplines, seeks to promote, encourage and recognize excellence in scientific research related to sediments and their interactions with water and biota in fluvial, lacustrine and marine systems and with particular reference to problems of environmental concern. This symposium provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussions with the aim of better integrating knowledge of the biological, physical and chemical processes between sediments and water.

NET-SCARCE International Conference - RIVER UNDER WATER SCARCITY: Threats and challenges

The NET-SCARCE International Conference will be held on 15-16 November 2016 in Barcelona (Spain). This conference is part of the project NET-SCARCE, which in turn is the follow-up to the project SCARCE (Assessing and predicting effects on water quantity and quality in Iberian rivers caused by global change).
