  • 14th International Deep-Sea Biology Symposium

    10/02/2016 14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium The 14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium ( was held in Aveiro from the 30th August to the 4th September 2015. During a week deep-sea biologists and ecologists from all around the world were gathered to present and discuss the latest advances in deep-sea research. In total there were 380 participants from 35 countries, representing universities, private and government institutes, NGOs, industry, and the media. More than 200 oral communications and 250 posters were presented in broad thematic sessions: 1. Biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (including pelagic and hadal systems, canyons, seamounts, vents, seeps and organic falls, trophic ecology and microbial processes); 2. Advances in taxonomy and phylogeny; 3. Autoecology; 4. Connectivity and biogeography; 5. Evolutionary history and fossil records; 6. Natural and anthropogenic disturbance (including a special session on mining impacts); 7. Stewardship of our deep oceans. Noteworthy was the increase in presentations addressing conservation and stewardship topics. Many deep-sea related initiatives have also contributed to the symposium by organizing open meetings to provide information on their progress and the opportunity for the community to engage in their activities. The discussions promoted in these “side-meetings” will undoubtedly be wellsprings of cooperation and creation of new projects. The 14DSBS was also the official launching platform of two important initiatives: the European Marine Board 22nd position paper (Delving Deeper: Critical challenges for 21st century deep-sea research) and the Deep-sea Biology Society.Awards:Frontiers in Marine Science Award for best student presentations: Franziska Bergmeier and Magdalena GeorgievaJohn Gage Award for best student presentations: Jennifer Durden and Rui VieiraINDEEP community Award: Professor Lisa Levin, for her inspirational scientific presentations on the deep-sea.Sir George Deacon Medal: Professor Myriam Sibuet and Prof. David BillettDon McAllister Medal: Professor Lisa LevinPublications:Cunha MR (Ed) (2015) 14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium: abstract book, UA Editora, Aveiro. 367 pp. ISBN 978-972-789-455-0.Cunha MR, Hilário A, Santos RS (Eds) (in preparation, expected publication in October 2016) Advances in Deep-Sea Biology, Deep-Sea Research Part II Speciual Issue.Conveners:Marina R.

  • UA hosts the 14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium

    28/08/2015From August 31 to September 4 at the Centro Cultural e de Congressos de AveiroThe 14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium will bring together over 400 scientists from around the world around the larger ecosystem of the earth, the sea bottom. Organized by the University of Aveiro (UA) the meeting will address the most emerging issues that relate to the ocean floor . Environmental disruption of deep sea linked to the exploitation of biotic and abiotic resources, such as trawling or exploitation of mineral, oil and ga , and governance issues, marine protected areas management and conservation of ecosystems are among the topics that will be highlighted from August 31 to September 4 at the Cultural Center and Aveiro Congress .Since their first edition in 1977, the international deep-sea symposia have been invaluable forums for exchange of information on the most recent deep-sea explorations and scientific advances. Moreover, the symposia have also been wellsprings of cooperation and formation of new research groups and projects.The publication of a special volume in "Deep-Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography" is foreseen.Under the scope of the symposia, the European Marine Board (EMB) invites you to join the launch event of position paper 22 “Delving Deeper: Critical challenges for 21st century deep-sea research”, on 1 September in the Pequeno Auditório at 18:00. The position paper is an output of EMB Working Group (WG) “Deep Sea Research for Societal Challenges and Policy Needs” and delivers eight high-level goals for deep-sea research in the context of expanding commercial activities, increasing human and natural pressures, and the need for effective and practicable governance frameworks to underpin the management of deepsea activities and resources.More information about this side event can be found here.All information about the 14th Deep -Sea Biology Symposium can be found here.
