Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER)
Open Science Conference
“Future Oceans – Research for marine sustainability: multiple stressors, drivers, challenges and solutions”
23-27 June 2014, Bergen, Norway
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
