The symposium is taking place 4–8 June
2018, in Washington D.C., USA, and the call for abstracts is open until 12 January 2018. There are 18 theme sessions from which to choose.
The conference provides a forum for
scientists to discuss exciting innovations, discoveries, and outcomes of their
research. It will also bring important knowledge to decision-makers and
Rapid progress in understanding the
planet’s climate system has enabled projections of alternative scenarios on
current and future conditions of socio-ecological marine systems throughout the
world. These advances build on a growing body of science – from studies on the
adaptive capacity of single species or human communities to new modeling
techniques that evaluate climate-driven changes, interactions, and feedbacks
within socio-ecological systems under alternative future scenarios.
ICES is organizing the conference along
with the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC/UNESCO),
and the North Pacific Marine Science
Organization (PICES). It is the latest edition in a series of climate
change meetings, the most
recent of which took place in 2015 in Santos, Brazil.
