Call for Abstracts – The “4th Symposium on Decadal Variability of the North Atlantic and it’s Marine Ecosystem: 2010-2019” – Deadline 27 September

The call for abstracts is now open and we encourage all relevant researchers to submit an abstract to one of the four theme sessions:

  • Ocean climate and physical environment in the North Atlantic and their linkages to changing marine ecosystems.
  • Decadal change and trends in North Atlantic/sub-Arctic plankton and their ecosystems
  • Trends and drivers of decadal variability in fish and invertebrates.
  • Expanding horizons: assessing decadal changes and incorporating Social-Ecological Systems in the North Atlantic.

Special issue in IJMS:

We invite abstracts that propose papers to be selected for submission to a special issue of ICES Journal of Marine Science (IJMS). The symposium and subsequent publication will together form an overview of the hydrobiological variability of the North Atlantic during the decade 2010-2019.

 ICES Early career scientist funding:

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) will provide support for up to 25 early career scientists from ICES member countries to attend this symposium. You can apply when you register and submit your abstract.
