4th International Symposium
June 4-8, 2018
Washington, DC

 The 4th International Symposium will bring together experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on ocean ecosystems – and how to respond.

The Symposium will:

    Highlight the latest information on how oceans are changing, what is at risk and how to respond;
    Identify key knowledge gaps;
    Promote collaborations; and
    Stimulate the next generation of science and actions

The Symposium will include:

    Great sessions, presentations, and posters
    Opportunities for pre- or post-meeting workshops
    Special events for early career scientists
    Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities

Scientific Program

The Symposium will consist of:

Plenary Sessions

Morning plenary sessions to provide overarching keynote presentations and to introduce topics for the concurrent sessions to be convened on the same day.

Plenary Speakers (TBA)
Topic Sessions (June 4-8)
Concurrent Topic Sessions every day, following a morning plenary session

    Session 1: Ocean extremes and their impact on marine ecosystems
    Session 2: From prediction to projection: the role of seasonal to decadal forecasts in a changing climate
    Session 3: Carbon uptake, ocean acidification, and ecosystems and human impacts
