Gordon Research Conference and Seminar: Polar Marine Science

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops


10 March 2013 to 15 March 2013

Where: Ventura, California

More information: 


The seminar provides a forum for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists to present their work, discuss cutting edge aspects of their research, and build collaborative relationships with their colleagues and established scientists, at a critical time in their careers. Financial support will be offered in priority to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows attending both the conference and the preceding seminar.

The conference will discuss recent developments and challenges emerging from contemporary and paleo-climate observations and models, encompassing regional and global scales. The GRC addresses the structure, functionalities and controls of polar marine systems through topics such as sea ice biogeochemistry, atmosphere-ocean forcings and interactions, food web trophodynamics, carbon and elemental cycling and fluxes, and a spectrum of ecological processes and interactions.

Interested persons must apply for the seminar by 9 February 2013, and for the conference by 10 February 2013. Early application is recommended, as the events will likely reach capacity.

Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application as soon as possible. The speaker application deadline is typically four months before the start of the meeting, but may vary at the discretion of the Chair. Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by 9 November 2012. Please refer to the Application Instructions on the website for more details.

Abstract submission deadline: Friday, 9 November 2012.
Application deadline: 9 February (seminar) and 10 February (conference).
