  Aims: The Ocean Margin Conference is aimed to increase our knowledge about the functioning of ocean margin systems. It will also promote the wise use of the seafloor and sub seafloor of the Earth's ocean margin system as a source of natural marine resources.

The conference addresses topics that are of fundamental interest to most if not all ocean margin research communities around the globe. It is therefore the goal of the Ocean Margin Research Consortium (OMARC) to bring together scientists in an European Commission and UNESCO sponsored conference, which provides one of the best forums to present, to discuss and enhance our knowledge about ocean margin systems, and to create more public awareness. This is to be achieved through six major sessions and themes, click for more info:

Session 1 - Ocean Margin Emissions
Session 2 - Ocean Margin Ecosystems
Session 3 - Ocean Margin Shaping

Session 4 - Ocean Margin Acoustic Imaging

Session 5 - Ocean Margin Long Term Observatories

Session 6 - Ocean Margin Educational Networks
