Dear all, 


The MARES Consortium and EuroMarine Network are pleased to announce that the
Call for Abstracts for the Mares Conference on Marine Ecosystems Health and
Conservation 2016 has been extended until the 9th October 2015.


The abstract submission deadline has been extended for the reason that
authors now have the option to publish accepted abstracts in the Open Access
Mares Conference 2016 Collection via the publisher PeerJ
<http://www.maresconference.eu/peerj> ‘Collections’. 


All accepted abstracts can be published in the
<https://peerj.com/preprints/> PeerJ PrePrints (a preprint server incurring
no cost) in the Mares Conference on Marine Ecosystems Health and
Conservation 2016 Collection. We also invite full length journal articles of
accepted abstracts to be submitted for publication in PeerJ (the
peer-reviewed journal), with the best 10 oral presentations and 10 posters
being subsidised for the publication costs of the first author.


The second Mares Conference on Marine Ecosystems Health and Conservation
will be held from the 1st to 5th February 2016 in Olhão, Portugal.
Throughout the conference scientific sessions and exhibitions six thematic
subjects will be explored, with the following keynote speakers presenting on
each theme:


*         Future oceans: temperature changes - hypoxia – acidification -
Professor Jean-Pierre Gattuso

*         Understanding biodiversity effects on the functioning of marine
ecosystems - Professor Steve Widdicombe
