Agenda: The 4th International Symposium will bring together experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on ocean ecosystems – and how to respond.
By convening a series of integrated discussions amongst an interdisciplinary group of ocean-oriented scientists, the Symposium will facilitate the synthesis of information on how climate-related changes will influence oceans, marine ecosystems and society. We expect this knowledge will be useful in informing societal choices for preparing for and responding to changing oceans including adaptation and management options. The Symposium outputs will provide information for use in a variety of national and international analyses of climate impacts on the world’s oceans.
We are looking for a broad range of topics and approaches to sharing, synthesizing and discussing information. We encourage applicants to consider innovative ways to communicate results and engage the scientific community, decision-making community and the public in dialog on the effects of – and responses to – changing climate on the world’s oceans including marine resources and resource dependent sectors, communities and economies.
