Symposium Observation and research to support coastal and marine policies
The LITEAU program calls for scientific papers as part of its next conference to be held on 14 and 15 January 2016 in Brest, in partnership with the National Research Agency, Ifremer and scientific interest group Hommer.
The conference addresses the renewal of the modes of knowledge production, particularly evolutionary and complex relationships between dynamic observation of the sea and coast, and thematic research currently being debated widely within OHM.

Third edition of the Summer University - Widou Thiengoly (Ferlo, Senegal)
The Observatory Téssékéré International Men-media, organized in collaboration with its partners, including the Cheikh Anta Diop University, the National Committee for Scientific Research and the Senegalese National Agency of the Great Green Wall, the third edition of Summer Universities Widou to Thiengoly (Ferlo, Senegal).
From 16 to 26 August 2015, more than 80 people will be present: French researchers, Senegal and Burkina Faso; Students in medicine and dentistry; French and Senegalese masters in plant ecology, zoology, sociology and anthropology. Ecologists, doctors, anthropologists, ethno-botanists, sociologists, hydrogeologists, geographers and zoologists lead, alongside students, three types of activities:
- Research: implementation of study courses, survey data, quantitative and qualitative surveys
- The plantations of the Great Green Wall
- The free medical consultations for local populations (general medicine, dentistry, dermatology, respiratory medicine)
These three types of activities take place in the morning (until 14h) and research seminars are presented in the afternoons (from 17h to 19h).
Open PhD position:
The Labex "Interdisciplinary Research Design on human-environments Interactions" and Human-Environment Observatory French Mediterranean Coastline are currently looking for a PhD Student.
In order to further develop competencies in the field of "Assessment of ecosystem services and ecological integrity of coastal lagoon ecosystems in the context of ecological restoration".
The duration of the position is 3 years, starting in October 2015.
Release of «The lagoon and the factory»
Along the coast stretches the largest lagoon of Portugal : the Ria de Aveiro fragile reservoir of exceptional biodiversity. Nearby, the Estarreja Chemical Complex has grown for more than sixty years, in a densely populated area, where the traditional occupations of farming and fishing still play an important role. What were the consequences of industrial activity on the environment and neighboring populations ? How the relationship between the chemical complex and society have changed ? What future for this precious ecosystem in the era of climate change and the economic crisis ?
MedGeo2015 - 6th International Conference on Medical Geology
The Aveiro University (UA), the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) and the International Medical Geology Association (IMGA) co-organize the 6th International Conference on Medical Geology, the emerging interdisciplinary scientific field "dealing with the influence of ordinary environmental factors on the geographical distribution of health problems in man and animals" according to the Commission on Geological Sciences for Environmental Planning.
This event will take place from 26th July to the 1st August 2015.
MEDGEO conference bring together researchers and decision makers from the physical sciences and the medical sciences who are interested in solving health problems caused by natural processes and materials. The participants of the conference will convey expertise in a range of scientific fields, such as geochemistry, biology, engineering, geology, hydrology, epidemiology, chemistry, medicine, nutrition and toxicology.
