OCEANEXT: a great success !
More than 220 registered , scientists representing laboratories in 18 different countries (South Africa, Germany, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ghana, Ireland, Morocco, New Caledonia, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Portugal, USA), 4 plenary sessions, 14 keynotes, 65 oral presentations, 19 flash presentations, 20 posters, 4 roundtables and 9 pairs for " 3 minutes to COSELMAR !"
Exciting plenary sessions
Dorothy DANKEL and transdisciplinarity, Chris BOWLER and TARA expedition, Thierry CHOPIN and IMTA, Luc Van HOOF and foresight planning... All will have been able to make us think, laugh, dream, with the ability to address both biologists, geographers, economists, sociologists and engineers.
Feel free to upload their presentations, they kindly left available.
Antonio Alvarez ALONSO (CSIC, Spain), Elisa BERDALET (CSIC, Spain), Allan CEMBELLA (Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Germany) Gilbert DAVID (IRD, France), Michael DEPLEDGE (ExeterUniversity, ECEHH, UK), Marcel JASPARS (Aberdeen University, UK), Stephen JAY (Liverpool University, UK), Darren LUMBROSO (HR Wallingford, UK), Katie LYNCH (Cork University, Ireland), Alan O'CONNOR (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland), Erik OLSEN (IMR Bergen, Norway), Koen SABBE (Ghent University, Belgium), Jean-François SASSI (CEA Cadarache, France), Benoit SCHOEFS (Université du Maine, France)...
... all answered present and presented their work at the opening of each session.
Round tables... smotthly conducted !
Frédéric DENHEZ was able to lead the dialogue between each speaker and the public, on topics as diverse as "Infinite food supplies from the oceans ?", "What is the future for offshore aquaculture ?", "Challenges for Marine Renewable Energy?", and "Sharing our coasts and oceans".
A funny and instructive exercise of vulgarization
9 teams of " 3 minutes for COSELMAR " have obviously succeeded in their exercise of vulgarization by making us laugh and allowing each viewer to understand subjects as difficult as kleptoplastidie or metabolomics .
No doubt "Mrs Vona, lawyer of Mrs Diatomée" will long be remembered.
Social Events appreciated
From the Ice Breaker on June 8 to gala dinner on June 9, everyone could enjoy gourmet, climate and musical delights of our beautiful region of Nantes. Many contacts were made, and future regional, national and international collaborations will no doubt see the day !
And now, to your keyboard !
Two special issues were indeed reserved.
