Presentation Formats

Science Presentation

Abstracts related to the three physical drivers of coastal and ocean acidification, sea level rise and storms, and warming waters will be considered for 15-minute oral presentations during the morning plenary sessions.

Poster Session

Poster sessions provide an interactive forum for participants to highlight their work. Posters should reflect current efforts to understand the Gulf of Maine. We are particularly interested in posters that highlight scientific research related to the physical drivers of change in the Gulf of Maine (ocean acidification, warming waters, and sea level rise), research associated with cross-cutting socioeconomic topics, and adaptation case studies for resilience.

Lightning Talk

5-minute presentations highlighting impacts that changes in the Gulf of Maine are having on community, industry, and governance. Potential topic areas include but are not limited to:

  • Community:  planning, infrastructure, health, social justice, mitigation
  • Industry:  fisheries, coastal and marine based tourism, real estate, energy, transportation, insurance
  • Governance:  local, regional state and provincial, federal

Lightning talk presenters will be selected from abstracts, registered attendees, or by invitation.

Panel Presentation

10-minute presentations followed by discussion. Panels will focus on community, state, provincial or regional efforts to promote coastal and ocean resiliency (e.g., adaptation case studies or innovative regulatory / policy approaches). Panel presenters will be selected from abstracts or by invitation.
