The next edition of the Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquia will be carried out from 3 to 12 July 2017 in Barcelona and Begur (Costa Brava). This is a 10-day colloquium on "Spatial and temporal patterns in physical-biological oceanic processes: from scale interaction to the rise of the living ocean", organized by the Institute of Marine Sciences together with the Catalan Association of Oceanographers (ACOIO) and the Sotaigua Association.
This year's colloquium will look at how living and non-living ocean processes are structured in spatial and temporal patterns, how physical-biological interactions favour diversity and persistence of the community, and how these interactions give rise to complexity and the living Earth. The format of the colloquium will be such as to enhance the interaction between students and lecturers, and to have all students participate in working teams in order to effectively contribute to a final white paper on "spatial and temporal patterns in physical biological oceanic processes". The colloquium is addressed to advanced doctoral students and young postdocs.
