Second ICES-PICES Conference for Early Career Scientists

To encourage the participation of early career scientists in international scientific investigations and to promote their involvement in the management of the marine environment, the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) invited a group of early career marine scientists to form the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) to plan and organize an international conference for their peers on a marine topic of their own choosing. The resulting conference will be held on Majorca Island, Spain from 24 to 27 April 2012.

 

Participants are expected to arrive on the 23rd for a welcome address and ice-breaker reception at the Palma Aquarium. The main conference will take place over the following 4 days. Each day will begin with an invited plenary address followed by two parallel sessions. In the afternoon of Day 2 and Day 4 there will be workshop breakout sessions, predominantly addressing career advice for research scientists (e.g. proposal writing, communication, attracting funding) and the development of new collaborations. Several outing activities are planned to promote informal discussion among participants and explore the atmosphere and landscape of the island.
