The 4th International Symposium on Research and Management of Eutrophication in Coastal Ecosystems (EUTRO 2018) will take place 18-20 June 2018 in Nyborg, Denmark.

EUTRO 2018 will focus on:

  1. Setting the scene: What is coastal eutrophication?
  2. Presentation and discussion of scientific results in relation to specific eutrophication issues, e.g.:
    • Causative factors and direct and indirect eutrophication effects
    • Climate and physical control on the biogeochemical dynamics and eutrophication status of the coastal zone
    • Effects of eutrophication of biodiversity, food webs and ecosystem services
    • Monitoring, modelling and assessment of eutrophication
  3. Presentation and discussion of evidence-based or ecosystem-based nutrient management strategies and polices
  4. Next steps: From eutrophication to oligotrophication in a changing climate

The following keynote speakers at EUTRO 2018 are confirmed. The titles of their presentations are tentative:

  1. “Coastal marine eutrophication: the damage, the danger and the disruptions” by Carlos M. Duarte, KAUST, Saudi Arabia
  2. “The global experience in abating coastal eutrophication: Barriers and bridges” by Donald Boesch, UMCES, USA
  3. “Phytoplankton dynamics and food web efficiency in relation to changing nutrient and climate regimes” by Monika Winder, SU, Sweden
  4. “Submerged aquatic vegetation in relation to changing nutrient and climate regimes” by Marianne Holmer, SDU, Denmark
  5. “Contributions of macrofaunal communities to ecosystem function across gradients of eutrophication” by Alf Norkko, UH, Finland
  6. “Eutrophication science in a changing world: what have we learned and where to go from here?” by Jeremy Testa, UMCES, USA
  7. “From bloom to doom – 30 years of managing eutrophication in the North and Baltic Seas” by Ulrich Claussen, UBA, Germany

The themes for oral presentations (15 minutes + 5 minutes for questions) at EUTRO 2018 are:

  1. Land use and nutrients: Loads, concentrations, availability, limitation and dynamics
  2. Phytoplankton and HABs
  3. Benthic communities (a merger of ‘Submerged aquatic vegetation’ and ‘Benthic invertebrates’)
  4. Monitoring, remote sensing and modelling
  5. Assessment and management tools
  6. Mitigation, oligotrophication and recovery

Oral presentations relating to the above themes and also the themes of the keynote presentations, especially keynote presentations no. 6 and 7, are welcomed.

EUTRO 2018 will also include a poster session and the following 2-3 seminars:

  1. From monitoring data to integrated assessments (convened by Jacob Carstensen, Ciarán Murray, Jonas Svensson and Mats Lindegarth)
  2. Steps toward a harmonized assessment of eutrophication in Europe’s seas (convened by Jesper H. Andersen, Vivi Fleming-Lehtinen, Wera Leujak and Johnny Reker)

In addition to the keynote presentations, oral presentations and seminars, the organizers are pleased to announce that a closing summary of EUTRO 2018 will be presented by Wally Fulweiler (BU, USA), Dorte Krause-Jensen (AU, Denmark) and Katherine Richardson (KU, Denmark).

EUTRO 2018 Symposium Proceedings will be published as a Research Topic in Frontiers in Marine Science (FMARS), section on Marine Ecosystem Ecology. Guest editors are: Jesper H. Andersen, Jacob Carstensen, Marianne Holmer, Dorte Krause-Jensen and Katherine Richardson. Click here to read more.

The draft programme and book-of-abstracts is now available. Please note that a printed programme will be handed once arriving to Nyborg, Denmark.

Registration opened on January 18, 2018. The symposium fee is 7.450 DKK (€1000). This covers a package including participation in EUTRO 2018, accommodation Monday and Tuesday night and full board during the symposium (18-20 June 2018). The symposium opens officially on Monday at 8:30 CET, so we recommend that you arrive on Sunday evening. An additional 745 DKK (€100) fee covers an informal reception Sunday evening, accommodation Sunday night and breakfast Monday morning.

The number of participants is limited. Places at EUTRO 2018 will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Sign up early to avoid disappointment!
