The Integrated Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) Project is convening its Open Science Conference from 23-27 June 2014 in Bergen, Norway, with the goals of:
- highlighting research results from the IMBER project and activities,
- promoting integrated synthesis of IMBER research, and
- developing a science plan and implementation strategy for the next phase of IMBER research
The first day of the IMBER Open Science Conference will be devoted to topical workshops that address aspects of IMBER science. The following three and half days of plenary and contributed sessions will focus on the main achievements of the IMBER project and provide a basis for planning future initiatives.
The biogeochemistry and ecosystem research community is kindly invited to contribute proposals for sessions and workshops related to the goals of the IMBER Open Science Conference. Workshops and topical sessions that focus on integration across IMBER research themes, results from IMBER Working Groups and Regional Programmes, and IMBER-relevant research at the interface of natural and human sciences are especially encouraged.
Session and workshop proposals should include a short description of the proposed topic, convener(s), format (e.g., oral, poster, discussion with panel, world cafe), and potential number of participants. Workshop proposals should also include clearly defined outputs, such as a research paper, a special issue in a leading journal, or a position paper. Innovative formats that promote strategic thinking and new ideas are especially encouraged.
