The 2nd International Ocean Research Conference (IORC) will be held in Barcelona, Spain from 17-21 November, 2014.
The conference is 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. This conference has an interdisciplinary focus, encompassing oceanographic, social science and economic perspectives on ocean research and will provide excellent opportunities to gain insight into the latest oceanographic research through theme sessions, key note speakers and workshops. 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.
Information about the Science Programme, Registration, Call for Abstracts, Side Events and Exhibitions, Social Events, Early Career Scientist opportunities, etc. can be found on the IORC website.
