2019 IMBeR OSC will be held in Brest, France

IMBeR is delighted to announce that its 2nd Open Science Conference will be held in Brest, France in 2019.
In some ways, this is a bit like going home – as Brest hosted the IMBeR International Project Office at the European Institute for Marine Sciences (IUEM) from 2005-2012. We look forward to working with the local scientific community and staff of the Campus Mondial de la Mer, to organise a great event in 2019.
We would like to thank all those who submitted bids to host the event. You gave us a difficult choice!

Deadline to submit abstracts for IMBIZO5 has been extended to 15 June!

IMBIZOs are IMBeR´s flagship conferences and IMBIZO5 is the fifth in the series. They are limited to about 120 participants, which we have found is a good size for stimulating discussions. Participants are selected on the relevance of their abstracts, so you must submit one to be considered.

The overall theme is Marine biosphere research for a sustainable ocean: Linking ecosystems, future states and resource management.

The meeting comprises plenary talks, poster sessions, debates and other events, but the major part is dedicated to three concurrent but interacting workshops.

You need to choose to attend one of the following:

  • Critical constraints on future projections of marine systems (co-Chairs: Laurent Bopp and Eric Galbraith)
  • Metabolic diversity and evolution in marine biogeochemical cycling and ocean ecosystem processes (co-Chairs: Gerhard Herndl and Tatiana Rynearson)
  • Management Strategy Evaluation: Achieving transparency in natural resource management by quantitatively bridging social and natural science uncertainties (co-Chairs: Ingrid van Putten and Cisco Werner)

Don´t miss out! Submit an abstract for your workshop of choice!

There is limited travel support, but requests for funding will only be considered once you have been notified that your abstract has been accepted and you can attend IMBIZO5
