Halifax, Canada

 

23 + 24 June 2015

(25 June 2015, MEAP-TT meeting, by invitation only)

 

Agenda: The full agenda of MEOPAR/MEAP-TT workshop is now available from the workshop web pages. This is the latest draft which might still change so please check for further updates.

Please note that we have assigned session chairs to each of the 4 workshop sessions to help us with the running of the workshop. Could those assigned please check if they are available and willing to help, and let us know asap if this is not possible.

Abstracts: All abstracts submittedto the MEOPAR/MEAP-TT workshop are now available from the workshop web pages for information. Please visit the abstract page for more details. If you would like your abstract NOT to be available online please let us know and we will remove the link.

Venue: The workshop will take place at Dalhousie University in the Biology/Earth Sciences tower of the Life Sciences (LSC) Building. Poster sessions and lunches will be held in the atrium of the new Ocean Sciences Building adjacent to the LSC. Two entrances to the Biology Tower of the LSC are marked by red crosses on the map. Signs will guide you to the Milligan room on the 8th floor where the workshop will take place. Also marked by a red cross is the location of the new Ocean Sciences Building. Please see the website site for maps & directions.

Accommodation: We recommend the Lord Nelson Hotel (http://lordnelsonhotel.ca/) in the heart of downtown. It is in easy walking distance to Dalhousie’s Studley campus and the Life Sciences Building (LSC) when the workshop will be held. For those of you who requested/receive accommodation expenses, we will make the booking for you once we have received instructions on your itinerary. An alternative option is the Halliburton (http://www.thehalliburton.com/) which is a little further, but still in easy walking distance to the workshop location. Another very economic and convenient, but basic option is student housing in Le Marchant Place ( http://www.dal.ca/dept/summer-accommodations/accommodations/accommodation-options/lemarchant-place.html ). This is the newest Building on campus (it just opened last year) and has single bedrooms with shared bathrooms, as well as 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom and 4-bedroom suites with kitchenettes for rent. It is less than 5 minutes walk to the workshop location and in easy walking distance to downtown.

MEOPAR , the Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response Network, is a Canadian initiative aiming for improved capabilities for mitigating, adapting and responding to marine environmental risks on timescales from hours to decades ( www.meopar.ca).

GODAE OceanView is an international consortium working to accelerate the improvement and exploitation of operational ocean forecast systems for societal benefit ( https://www.godae-oceanview.org/). The workshop specifically addresses objectives of the GODAE Marine Ecosystem Analysis and Prediction Task Team. We hope you will be able to participate and look forward to seeing you in Halifax.

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
