First Mares Conference “Marine Ecosystems Health and Conservation”, November 17th to 21st 2014, Olhão, Portugal

The first international MARES Conference is an initiative from the MARES Doctoral Program. The MARES Conference aims to address the main issues of marine ecosystems health and conservation. Six thematic subjects will be developed – these six themes are the ones developed by the MARES doctoral candidates and include, among others, “Future Oceans : temperature changes – hypoxia – acidification”.

Early Bird Registration and submission of abstracts for spoken papers and posters is now open. Deadline for abstract submission: 1st June 2014.

This joint international thematic doctoral programme was initiated in 2010, and since then over 30 young scientists are actively conducting research focused on the impacts of human activities on marine ecosystems.

This conference will bring together scientists from different levels and disciplines to discuss and address issues about marine ecosystems health and conservation. The conference will be dynamic, mixing oral presentations, round table discussions and poster and digital objects sessions. It will be a good opportunity to build personal relationships and create new collaborations.

The conference will be hosted in Olhão, eastern Algarve, Portugal.
