The Fifth Xiamen Symposium on Marine Environmental Sciences (XMAS-V, https://melmeeting.xmu.edu.cn/xmas5/) will be held in Xiamen, China from Jan 11th to 14th, 2021. The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is pleased to announce the call for session/mini workshop proposals. 

Theme of XMAS-V

Multidisciplinary Sciences Serving a Sustainable and Healthy Ocean

 

Proposal Submission Timeline

  • May 15, 2020 Session/Mini Workshop Proposal Submission Closes
  • May 20, 2020 Session/Mini Workshop Proposal Acceptance Notification
  • June 01, 2020 Abstract Submission Opens

 

Financial Support

  • Limited financial support will be available for each session to subsidize travel and accommodation expenses of two to three conveners and/or invited speakers. 
  • Application for financial support should be submitted along with session proposals.

 

Important Guidelines

  • Session proposals with broader themes and larger scales are preferred. Session proposals with strong overlaps will likely be merged, to minimize repetition and to build a program with sessions that are fewer but larger and stronger.
  • If a session has less than 10 accepted abstracts, the SAC/LOC reserves the right to merge it with another session.
  • Mini workshop should focus on hot topics or emerging research areas. At least 3 speakers must be included in a proposal.
  • Co-conveners are preferably from different institutions. 
  • Co-conveners are encouraged to submit abstracts to their own sessions as well as other sessions. 
  • The SAC/LOC may request revisions to some proposals.
  • Session/mini-workshop conveners' scheduling requests will be considered by SAC/LOC but cannot be guaranteed. The actual time allocation will vary according to the number of accepted abstracts. Sessions/mini-workshops can be scheduled from Monday (Jan 11) evening to Tuesday (Jan 14) afternoon.

 

Information Required in the Proposals

  • Relevance to the theme of XMAS-V 
  • Session/Mini-workshop Title
  • Session/Mini-workshop Description – maximum 400 words, including focus, scope and objectives 
  • Name, affiliation and email of each co-convener
  • Name, affiliation and email of invited and proposed speakers (if any)
  • Name of speakers and/or the conveners for financial support and the budget

If you have any questions, please contact the LOC via email.

 

About the Conference

To promote interdisciplinary studies in marine environmental science and to foster the next generation of ocean scientists, the State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science (MEL), Xiamen University initiated the Xiamen Symposium on Marine Environmental Sciences (XMAS) in 2014, with the overarching theme The Changing Ocean Environment: From a Multidisciplinary Perspective. XMAS has grown to be one of Asia’s largest conferences in marine sciences and acts as a hot spot to exchange research interests in global and regional oceans.

Its fifth iteration, XMAS-V will be held in Xiamen from January 11th to 14th, 2021. XMAS-V will focus on how Multidisciplinary Sciences Can Serve a Sustainable and Healthy Ocean. It will be one of the important hallmarks of Xiamen University’s centenary celebrations. The symposium will consist of different, interconnected sessions covering physical oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, biological oceanography, and marine ecotoxicology along with workshops for emerging topics in marine environmental sciences such as how to achieve the goals outlined in the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).
