Ocean science: what‘s new?

Barcellona will host on 17-21 November the 2nd International Ocean Research Conference (Iorc), organized by Unesco. The meeting will be an opportunity for the scientific community to come together to plan the coming decade of international collaboration in marine science and technology, with a view to improving ocean governance.

The inaugural Iorc was held in June 2005, when the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of Unesco (Ioc-Unesco) with The Oceanography Society (Tos), brought attendees together to discuss expected developments in marine sciences in the decade that followed.Now, almost ten years later, the same institutions are convening the 2nd Iorc to review progress made in ocean science in the last 20 years, and plan ahead in light of important policy developments.

The Conference will focus on how ocean sciences have progressed in the last 20 years and will discuss the coming decade of international collaboration in marine sciences and technology. It will provide an overview on the latest trends and achievements in ocean sciences and technologies applied to oceanography and will explore future needs, developments as well as management and governance. The meeting is primarily for oceanographers, researchers, engineers, academics, conservation organizations and decision makers that have coastal and marine related responsibilities. The conference will welcome young career scientists. Keynote speakers will further expand upon the main themes. The Iorc will demonstrate the breadth and global impact of ocean research and its fascinating contributions in terms of new knowledge on pressing issues, including climate change, ocean governance and capacity building. Please check the conference website for more details.
