Colombia 2020: International Conference on Marine Science
Tropical Oceans for the future / CEMarin 10th anniversary
“The ICMS 2020 aims to bring together scientists, engineers, practitioners and scholar students, among other stakeholders to exchange and share their experiences, ideas and research results on all aspects of the current and future situation of tropical oceans. We particularly welcome interdisciplinary presentations related to global change aspects, changes in biodiversity, the fair and sustainable use of marine resources, ocean-land-atmosphere interactions, big and open data in the ocean, and participatory science.”
This conference provides an interdisciplinary forum to discuss Global change the ocean is facing, the Fair and Sustainable use of marine resources such as fisheries, aquaculture, bioprospection and marine energy, the interactions of Ocean-land-atmosphere and the supporting role that Big and open data in the ocean could have in this issues among others: omics, satellite, sensors, monitoring station. Finally, the conference also provides a unique scenario to foster participatory science.
The International Conference on Marine Sciences (ICMS 2020): “Tropical oceans for the future” to be held virtually, will start on the 28th of september until the 3rd of october, it will be the second in a series of international conferences organized by the CEMarin.
Peter Wainwright is a Distinguished Professor of Evolution & Ecology at the University of California, Davis. He studies the evolutionary diversification of fishes with a special interest in coral reefs. His work includes studies of the biomechanics of feeding mechanisms and how this system has evolved to support the ecological diversity of fishes. He has discovered several major principals of intrinsic design that shape the evolution of complex functional systems in fishes. His work has shown how habitat shapes the pace and mode of fish evolution and how ecological opportunity has shaped diversification in marine fishes differently from freshwater fishes.
Diana Ruiz Pino
Pino is a researcher, specialist in the Ocean Carbon and Oxygen Biogeochemical Cycle. Pioneer in the study of the evolution of CO2 and Minimum Oxygen Zones (OMZ) in the global ocean. She conducted aboard oceanographic ships from various countries, and installed the first fixed ocean station in the southern ocean (KERFIX-JGOFS). She is currently working on the development of an autonomous sensor that will allow measurement of acidification (pH and alkalinity) and is responsible for the first platform for autonomous coastal buoys in southern latitudes. She is the leader of the Franco-China Polar Oceans Observation Cooperation (CHINARE), and was a scientific expert for several international programs (SOLAS- Tools for Assessing Global Air-Sea Fluxes of Climate) and European (Threshold values for marine Ecosystems and Arctic Polar Research).
Joshua E. Cinner
Australian social scientist and reef researcher at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University Townsville. He explores how social, economic, and institutional drivers shape the ways in which people use, perceive, and govern natural resources. He works closely with ecologists on interdisciplinary research topics such as: defining the conditions that lead to successful governance of marine fisheries; understanding resilience and thresholds in social ecological systems; and examining vulnerability to environmental change. He has worked on human dimensions of resource management in Australia, Chile, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Mexico, Mozambique, Papua New Guinea, Seychelles, Tanzania, and USA. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles, 1 book, numerous policy and other material. In 2017, he won the Young Scholars Award Elinor Ostrom Award. Currently, he is working in three broad areas of research.
Marine Biologist, doctor in fisheries biology, director of the British Columbia Fisheries Centre (2003 to 2008). Pauly is founder of the Sea Around Us, a major research project about fisheries trends in the world. He has been a leader in conceptualizing and co-developing software that’s used by ocean experts throughout the world. He is also a very prolific researcher and communicator, in 2017, he received, together with Dirk Zeller as part of the Sea Around Us leading team, the Ocean Award in the Science category. Dr. Pauly is also the recipient of multiple international prizes and awards, including seven honorary doctorates from universities in Europe and Canada. Since 2016, he is University Killam Professor.
Robert Costanza is a professor of Ecological Economics and Vice Chancellor’s Chair in Public Policy at the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University. He is also currently a Senior Fellow at the National Council on Science and the Environment in Washington DC, a Senior Research Fellow at the Stockholm Resilience Center, an Affiliate Fellow at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, a deTao Master of Ecological Economics at the deTao Masters Academy, China, and an Ambassador of the Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll). He is co-founder and past-president of the International Society for Ecological Economics. He currently serves on the editorial board of ten other international academic journals. He is also founding editor in chief of Solutions (www.thesolutionsjournal.org) a unique hybrid academic/popular journal.
Dr. Jean-François Flot is an associate professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. His research interests include theoretical and bioinformatic aspects of species delimitation, molecular systematics and genome evolution in tropical corals, cave amphipods and bdelloid rotifers, assembly of polymorphic/heterozygous genomes, metagenomics (notably using chromosome conformation capture), experimental evolution and evolutionary genomics. He heads a research group called “Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics”. He studied biochemistry in Nancy, Paris and Stockholm before moving to Okinawa (Japan) where he completed a MSc in marine sciences in 2003. He obtained his PhD in molecular systematics in 2007 from the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle in Paris, then did postdocs in Göttingen, Namur and London.
