The Integrated Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) Project will convene an Open Science Conference from 23-27 June 2014 in Bergen, Norway, with the aims:

  • to highlight IMBER research results;
  • to promote integrated syntheses of IMBER-relevant research;
  • to develop a new global research agenda on marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems in the Anthropocene.

Nine workshops and 24 contributed sessions have been accepted (see http://www.imber.info/index.php/Meetings/IMBER-OSC-2014/Sessions-Workshops). Several sessions in the IMBER Open Science Conference 2014 are especially relevant to the Arctic and polar research communities:

Plenary Speakers include:

  • Eileen Hofmann (Old Dominican University, USA);
  • Nicholas Gruber (ETH Zurich, Switzerland);
  • Jean-Pierre Gattuso (Lab. d'Océanographie de Villefranche, France);
  • Coleen Moloney (University of Cape Town, South Africa):
