3rd Annual Science Meeting of UKOA and 2nd International Workshop of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network

16 May 2013

2012 ASM participantsThe third Annual Science Meeting of the UK Ocean Acidification Research Programme (UKOA ASM) will be on 22nd - 24th July 2013 at the University of St Andrews, North Haugh, St Andrews, Scotland, KY16 9TF. For UKOA agenda please click here.

The second international workshop of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) will follow the UKOA ASM from 24th to 26th July 2013 at the same location. For more information about the network and this workshop then please visit the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL)For GOA-ON agenda please click here.

Online registration closed on 30 June 2013. Completion of the online registration form is necessary for your participation in either of the above meetings, with attendance by invitation only (details below). You will be informed within one week of registering whether your registration has been accepted and the outcome of any request for accommodation at St Andrews (in hotel-standard, university rooms), with such costs being covered by the UKOA programme.

All researchers currently (or until recently) supported by the UKOA programme are invited to the 3rd UKOA ASM, also those with formal links to the programme (e.g. as PAG or PEB members). Travel support is likely to be available for UKOA researchers providing oral or poster presentations as lead authors. Please discuss your proposed contribution with your consortium lead principal investigator (where appropriate). Consortium lead PIs are expected to coordinate their team's involvement in the ASM, on the basis that the scale of that representation will be similar to previous ASMs.

UK and international participation in the 2nd GOA-ON workshop is limited to those who have received individual invitations. GOA-ON workshop participants who also wish to attend the 3rd UKOA ASM should indicate that on the relevant part of the registration form, to include the additional nights' accommodation that will be required.

Monday 22 July


UKOA ASM: Overview presentations, short (poster) presentations, poster sessions, discussions

Tuesday 23 July
