Bering Sea Project "Open Science Meeting" call for interest
1. Call for expressions of interest-- Bering Sea Project "Open Science Meeting"
The Steering Committee of the “Bering Sea Project” (bsierp.nprb.org) is pleased to call for expressions of interest in an Open Science Meeting (OSM) that aims to:
• communicate research results of the 2007-2013 BEST-BSIERP Bering Sea Project
• engage the community working in related disciplines and regions
This OSM will welcome topics within the broad scope of the Bering Sea Project-- to "understand the impacts of climate change and dynamic sea ice cover on the eastern Bering Sea ecosystem"— as well as related work from disciplines not included in the program, other related research programs, and other subarctic regions.
The OSM is conceived as a one-day meeting featuring a series of integrated talks, held in association with the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii. The OSM is provisionally planned to open with a reception and poster session on Saturday evening, 22 February, followed by a full day of presentations on the Sunday (23 February) preceding the opening of Ocean Sciences conference.
To plan this Open Science Meeting we need to hear from you. Please take a minute to complete this brief survey to help us gauge interest and plan for your participation.
Thanks very much.
