Workshop criteria

IMBIO IV follows the format of three concurrent and interactive workshops with joint plenary and poster sessions. This has been proved for IMBER to be an effective format for stimulating discussion between interdisciplinary experts, and to provide linkages between biogeochemistry, ecosystem, and social science research.

Each of the three workshops

  • will include oral and poster presentations to showcase the current state of knowledge in marine and human systems and their governance
  • is expected to produce a scientific product, for example a synthesis paper or special issue
