(last update - June 10, 2010)

Manuscript Submission Deadline has been extended - July 1, 2010
(was June 14)

Selected papers from the symposium will be included in a special issue of ICES Journal of Marine Science scheduled for publication in 2011, within a time-frame that will allow it to be considered by the Fifth Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The symposium and subsequent publication will inform the scientific community and the public about our current understanding of the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems and the implications of these changes for marine resources and their uses.
