The Workshop, co-sponsored by IOCCP, will bring together scientists from around the world to discuss emerging aspects from the coupled effects of ocean acidification with multi-stressors, review global ocean acidification status and forecast capabilities, and explore opportunities for capacity development. The workshop is consisted of various events to facilitate an open, multi-level and comprehensive communication and exchanges among participants. There will be invited keynotes, selected oral presentations at plenary sessions, accepted oral presentations at parallel sessions, poster sessions, special events, and summaries organized in a three-and-a half day program. In addition, the Organizing Committee will host several activities to foster a relaxing atmosphere for participants, including ice-breaker, workshop banquet, and city tour by night. IOCCP is co-chairing the session on "Observing ocean and coastal acidification and the impacts on organisms and ecosystems", one of the four thematic sessions of the workshop.
Deadline for abstract submission is 10 January 2019. Travel grant award applications are due by 31 January 2019.
Topics to be covered are:
- Ocean and coastal acidification in a multi-stressors environment
