Coastal Zones Conference is a two days conference consisting of a scientific program, comprehensive talks, special sessions, oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed contributed papers and exciting and innovative research products which can be exhibited for further development of Coastal Zones Management areas.
Join Circular Ocean in Reykjavik this July for the “Innovation Conference” which will gather Circular Ocean partners with members of the academic, creative and business communities to explore the opportunities around re-purposing waste Fishing Nets & Rope (FNR’s) in the Northern Periphery & Arctic Region. The conference will open on Monday, July 17th with updates from the Circular Ocean partners, followed by a “Serious Game” facilitated by Dr Laurent Bontoux from the EU Policy Lab with support from Professor Martin Charter from The Centre for Sustainable Design. Day Two on Tuesday, July 18th will see Circular Ocean’s second #NetHack Challenge, an innovation workshop designed to develop solutions to a series of challenges surrounding management of FNR’s.
The event is free, but registration is essential as places are limited.

Following on from the successful Celtic Seas Partnership project and ongoing work through the SIMCelt project and Irish Sea Maritime Forum, the ISMF will be hosting a discussion on future work on Thursday 13th July at the University of Liverpool. This discussion aims to bring stakeholders together to develop mechanisms for future collaboration at the Celtic Seas scale. The agenda will cover:
- An introduction to the Celtic Seas area
- Key messages from the PISCES, Celtic Seas Partnership and SIMCelt projects and the Irish Sea Maritime Forum
- Next steps for Celtic Seas collaboration
The conference in the European Parliament will present the outcomes of FP7 project SMS (Sensing Toxicants in Marine Waters Makes Sense Using Biosensors). The conference will be chaired by MEP Ricardo Serrão Sants. This conference aims at presenting SMS research’s results in terms of monitoring seawater chemical and ecological status in real time and in situ. The conference will also show why such projects, aiming at promoting innovative methodologies to detect/identify and measure emerging pollutants are supported and funded by EU policies and at presenting how this innovation could be useful for the end-users.
This year’s theme is Dealing with Maritime Mobilities. The conference will explore the nature of maritime mobilities and the ways climate and environmental change, economic development and maritime activities are affecting their direction and volume.
Conference themes: 1.Dealing with maritime mobilities, 2. Maritime Governance, 3. Social Relations and Culture, 4. Fisheries management, 5. Knowledge production and 6. Coastal threats and vulnerability
Adjacent to this conference, the Policy Day will take place on the 4th of July, featuring Sustainable Development Goal 14 ‘Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development’.
From July 2 – 6, 2017 the Kiel Cluster of Excellence 'The Future Ocean' will hold a conference on “Advances in Integrated Ocean Research towards Sustainable Development” in Kiel, Germany.The conference will bring together different groups of marine experts for multidisciplinary exchange in the eld of integrated ocean science in support of sustainable development.
Contributions are especially welcome from:
• research alumni of Marine Sciences in Kiel
• early career scientists working in integrated Marine Sciences
• marine scientists currently working in Kiel

The AMEMR conference provides an opportunity to present, discuss and learn about a wide variety of marine modelling challenges, methods, applications and outcomes.
Marine ecosystem models are a fundamental tool for understanding marine ecosystems and providing projections of potential future states of the marine environment. Marine modelling is continuously evolving, in response to new scientific knowledge, societal needs and computational resource.
AMEMR has a strong focus on the state-of-the-art and articulating future challenges. It also promotes interdisciplinary discussion among stakeholders and modelling, observational and experimental scientists and students who want to contribute to the conceptualisation, design, development and application of improved and new marine ecosystem models.
The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management is organising a summer conference on the topic of Integrated Management of the Marine Environment. The deadline for submitting proposals is the 21st of April. Topics to be covered should understand the external impacts on the marine environment and how an integrated management approach can deliver multiple benefits. To explore effective approaches to ecological impact assessment in the Marine environment and to discuss the required elements of a post-Brexit integrated marine management policy and legislative landscape. Registrations are now open and the first speakers have been announced.
The International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConferences SGEM bring together researchers, educators and practitioners representing research and educational institutions, companies, government agencies and consulting organizations from all over the world to exchange ideas, to define the research priorities in the fields of geosciences. The overall objective is to propose potential solutions of problems related to the global changes, to contribute to the integration of environmental consideration into the decision-making process - hoping to ensure that present consumption will not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
