SAVE THE DATE: Next Baltic Sea Science Congress to convene 12-16 June 2017 in Rostock

The biennial Baltic Sea Science Congress, joining the research communities of Baltic Marine Biologists, Baltic Marine Geologists and the Conference of Baltic Oceanographers, is the main international forum addressing a broad interdisciplinary spectrum of Baltic Sea research. The 11th Baltic Sea Science Congress “Living along gradients: past, present, future” will convene next summer, 12-16 June 2017, in Rostock, Germany.

Important dates:
Second announcement with call for abstracts: 17 October 2016
Registration open: 17 October 2016
Abstract submission closed: 16 January 2017
Programme published: April 2017
Early registration closed: 31 March 2017                                                                                                                     Late registration closed: 8 May 2017

Giving particular attention to the special characteristics of the Baltic Sea and comparable enclosed marine systems as well as to the challenges of an integrated management, we invite marine scientists focused on research questions related to the Baltic Sea or comparable coastal sea systems to share their results on the following topics:
•    Dynamics of gradient systems
•    Processes that affect coastal seas
•    Past and future changes
•    Coastal seas and society
While these session topics cover a broad range of questions, we announce crosscutting sessions addressing specific topics to be tackled from different perspectives:
•    Hypoxia
•    Major Baltic Inflows
•    Monitoring / Observation systems
•    Influences of the catchment

The “Joint Baltic Sea Research and Innovation Programme (BONUS)” supports the conference since 2009.
In keeping with good tradition, young scientists are explicitly invited to join the congress with their research and to join the activities of the BONUS Young Scientists’ Club, which will be held under the umbrella of the BSSC2017.

Congress hosts:
Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde and University of Rostock
