The Bering Sea Project Science Advisory Board is making a call for expression of interest in an Open Science Meeting (OSM) provisionally planned to convene in 22-23 February 2014 in association with the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The OSM aims to communicate research results of the 2007-2013 Bering Sea Project -- also known as the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study (BEST) and the Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BSIERP) -- and to engage the community working in related disciplines and regions. It is conceived as a one-day meeting featuring a series of integrated talks, including a poster session and oral presentations, preceding the opening of the Ocean Sciences conference.
The OSM will welcome topics within the broad scope of the Bering Sea Project, "to understand the impacts of climate change and dynamic sea ice cover on the eastern Bearing Sea ecosystem" and related work from disciplines not included in the program, other related research programs, and other subarctic regions.
The intent of the survey is to gauge community interest and availability to inform OSM planning.
