Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) Open Science Conference

23-27 June 2014, Bergen, Norway

Future Oceans – Research for marine sustainability:
multiple stressors, drivers, challenges and solutions

Call for Abstracts – Reminder!

The Integrated Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) Project will convene an Open Science Conference from 23-27 June 2014 in Bergen, Norway, with the goals of:
·  highlighting research results from the IMBER project and activities,
·  promoting integrated syntheses of IMBER-relevant research, and
·  developing a new global research agenda for marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems in the Anthropocene.

Plenary Speakers for our Conference include:
·  Alida Bundy (Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Canada) – Dead ends and grasping hands: failed governance and the need to integrate human-ocean interactions into global change research
·  Claudio Campagna (Wildlife Conservation Society, Argentina) – Marine biodiversity and conservation in the time of global change
·  Jean-Pierre Gattuso (CNRS, Lab. d'Océanographie de Villefranche, France) – Drivers of, and responses to, ocean acidification
·  Nicolas Gruber (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) – Warming up, turning sour, losing breath: The regional perspective
·  Alistair Hobday (CSIRO, Australia) – Climate change impacts and adaptation options for high trophic level marine species
·  Eileen Hofmann (Old Dominion University, USA) – Introduction to the Conference
·  Corinne Le Quéré (University of East Anglia, UK) – Perspectives on Future Earth for the marine research community
·  Kon-Kee Liu (National Central University, Taiwan) – Anthropogenic impacts on biogeochemical processes and ecosystems in continental margins: Lessons learned from cases around the globe and future perspective
·  Coleen Moloney (University of Cape Town, South Africa) – Foodweb and biogeochemistry in a changing marine environment
·  Carol Robinson (University of East Anglia, UK) – Conference’s Synthesis

The list of contributed sessions and workshops is available here.
