Submit an abstract for IMBeR IMBIZO 5 before June 15

 
.
  The final deadline to submit an abstract for IMBeR´s fifth IMBIZO, which will be held in Woods Hole, MA, USA in October, is rapidly approaching.
.
The overall theme of the conference is Marine biosphere research for a sustainable ocean: Linking  ecosystems, future states and resource management
.
There will be plenary presentations, discussions, debates and poster sessions, but the major part of the IMBIZO comprises three concurrent but interacting workshops. We have found that limiting each workshop to around 40 participants allows for good discussion and interactions. Participants are selected on the relevance of the submitted abstracts (so you must submit an abstract - by 15 June - to be considered).
.
The keynote presenters are: EDDIE ALLISON, MARY ANN MORAN, ANDRÉ PUNT AND DAVID VAN DER ZWAAG
.
The workshops themes and conveners are :
.
* Critical constraints on future projections of marine systems  (Laurent Bopp & Eric Galbraith)
.
* Metabolic diversity and evolution in marine biogeochemical cycling and ocean ecosystem processes (Gerhard Herndl & Tatiana Rynearson)
.
* Management Strategy Evaluation: Achieving transparency in natural resource management by quantitatively bridging social and natural science uncertainties (Cisco Werner & Ingrid van Putten
.
In addition, there is a free hands-on training workshop on Infographics for all IMBIZO participants, the day before the start of the IMBIZO. You can learn how to create and use infographics to communicate your research.
.
Limited travel support is available. Information on how to apply will be posted once participants have been notified that they have been selected to attend.
.
IMBIZOs are great meetings, don´t miss out - submit an abstract by 15 June 2017!
