Background and Objectives
The 4th International Symposium will bring together experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on ocean ecosystems – and how to respond.
The Symposium will:
Highlight the latest information on how oceans are changing, what is at risk and how to respond;
Identify key knowledge gaps;
Promote collaborations; and
Stimulate the next generation of science and actions
The Symposium will include:
Great sessions, presentations, and posters
Opportunities for pre- or post-meeting workshops
Special events for early career scientists
Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities
Key Topic Areas
The Symposium is a great opportunity to share information, highlight activities, build partnerships and shape the future of this important field.
One objective for this Symposium is to present current research results and to facilitate the uptake of these new results in other analyses, including (but not restricted to) the 6th Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). We plan a Special Volume of the ICES Journal of Marine Science and we expect that additional Special Volumes in peer-reviewed journals may emerge from this Symposium.
Please note that authors can submit their work at any time to ICES Journal of Marine Science
for the Special Volume. The Journal is very happy to receive and encourages authors to submit their work in advance of the symposium.
Join us in Washington DC in 2018!
