Staff participated in the following scientific conferences and workshops, with sessions focusing on ecosystem modeling:

Our Common Future under Climate Change (CFCC), France: Nearly 2,000 participants from 100 countries attended the CFCC15 in Paris, France, held 7-10 July 2015 to present recent climate change research and mitigation and adaption options aimed at informing the COP21 in December 2015. REEM researcher Kirstin Holsman, attended the meeting and presented modeling results during the Marine Ecosystems session on Theme Day 2: Landscapes of Our Common Future.

ICES/PICES Climate Change & Fisheries Modelling workshop (WKSICCME) 10 Augusut  2015, Seattle, Washington: AFSC researchers Anne Hollowed and Kirstin Holsman along with Shin-ichi Ito (Japan), Michio Kawamiya (Japan), Trond Kristiansen (Norway), Myron Peck (Germany), John Pinnegar (UK), Cisco Werner (U.S.A.)co-chaired the ICES-PICES Strategic Initiative (Section) on Climate Change effects on Marine Ecosystems (SICCME) workshop 10-12 August in Seattle, Washington.  63 scientists from 10 nations attended the workshop, presented talks and participated in facilitated discussions and breakout groups aimed at coordinating global research on climate change impacts on marine fisheries.  The intra-disciplinary breakout groups focused on regional climate modeling, modeling biological responses, and modeling fish dependent community responses.  Breakout session conveners reported in plenary on the key recommendations of the intra - disciplinary sessions.  The workshop was successful and will result in at least 4 papers that will be submitted to the peer reviewed literature.  The group identified 14 potential regions where there was sufficient data to model the effects of climate change on fish and fisheries and these regional nodes will continue to coordinate modeling efforts. The group also identified the need for a follow-up socio-economic workshop to be held next year. More>

American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting, Portland, Oregon, 16-20 August  2015: AFSC researchers Kirstin Holsman and Alan Haynie co-chaired a multi-species session along with NOAA Fisheries scientists Sarah Gaichas and Geret Depiper titled “Multispecies modeling (including humans!) for fisheries management: where are we now and where can we go?”. During the meeting Kirstin also presented two talks titled “Quantitative clairvoyance or deductive delusion? Do multi-species models improve fisheries management advice under climate change?” and “Towards a Process-Based Understanding of Climate Change Consequences on Ecosystems” (lead author Trond Kristiansen, IMR) as well as a poster “Evidence for trophic amplification and attenuation of climate change impacts on groundfish species productivity in the Bering Sea, AK”.  Stephani Zador presented an invited talk titled “The Use of Ecosystem Indicators in Management: North Pacific Perspectives” in a session entitled “Ecosystem-Based Fishery Management: It’s Not as Daunting as Some Think.”  More>

ICES Annual Science Conference, Denmark: More than 700 scientists from 37 countries met in Copenhagen, Denmark, for the ICES Annual Science Conference held on 21-25 September 2015. REEM research scientist Kirstin Holsman attended the meeting to present three talks “Approaches and implementation of Ecological Risk Assessments (ERA) for ocean management,” “Quantitative clairvoyance or deductive delusion? Do multi-species models improve fisheries management advice under climate change?”  and “Evidence for trophic amplification and attenuation of climate change impacts on groundfish species productivity in the Bering Sea, Alaska,” as well as a poster “Do modeled zooplankton abundances increase the hindcast and prediction strength of fish recruitment models?”
