Deadline for IMBIZO IV abstract submissions extended!

Trieste, Italy from 27 to 30 October 2015

The deadline to submit an abstract for IMBER IMBIZO IV has been extended to 15 June!

IMBER IMBIZO* IV -  Marine and human systems: Addressing multiple scales and multiple stressors - will be held at the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia and Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS) in Trieste, Italy from 27 to 30 October 2015.

IMBIZOs revolve around concurrent and interacting workshops, with joint plenary and poster sessions. This format has proved to be an excellent forum for stimulating discussion between interdisciplinary experts, linking biogeochemistry, ecosystem and social science research. The number of participants is limited to optimise interactions and discussions, so you must submit an abstract to be considered!

Choose from one of the following workshops:

  1.  Marine ecosystem-based governance: From rhetoric to reality
  2.  Coastal upwelling ecosystems as models for interdisciplinary studies of climate and global change
  3.  Integrated modelling to support assessment and management of marine social-ecological systems in the face of global change
  4.  From regime shifts to novel systems - evaluating the social-ecological implications of lasting ecosystem changes for resource management

Each workshop is chaired by natural and social science researchers, and a white paper or a special journal issue will be produced by each one.

Several bonus workshops are offered on 26 October 2015, including scientific writing and publication and how to write a (hopefully!) successful funding proposal!
