Announcement and Call for Papers 

The North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission will host an international symposium on “Pacific Salmon and Steelhead Production in a Changing Climate: Past, Present, and Future”, to be held on May 17-19, 2015, at the Kobe International Conference Center, Kobe, Japan (www.kobe-cc.jp/english/index.html).
 
Purpose
 
Understanding how climate change and variability impacts the marine ecology of Pacific salmon and steelhead is important to their future sustainability. This symposium will review recent research on ecological mechanisms regulating marine distribution and production of anadromous populations, climate change impacts on salmonid populations, retrospective analysis of key populations as indicators of conditions in North Pacific marine ecosystems, and implications of stock identification and model development for management of salmon and steelhead. The goal of the symposium is to utilize the best available information on marine ecology of salmonid populations to explain and forecast annual variation in their production.

Submitted manuscripts will be considered for publication in the NPAFC Bulletin series after peer review.

 
Oral and Poster Presentations
 
The symposium will be conducted in English. Sessions will comprise oral presentations by invited and contributed speakers and poster presentations. Oral and poster presentations can only be given by an author of the abstract. If an author is not present at the symposium to make the presentation (oral or poster), it will be withdrawn from the program.

Contributed oral presentations are 15 minutes followed by 3 minutes for questions/discussion for a total of 18 minutes, and there are 2 minutes allotted for change of speakers. Presenters will be held strictly to their time slots, so please plan accordingly.

There will be an evening poster session. The presenting author must be present at the evening poster session to discuss the work presented. Posters will be available for viewing throughout the duration of the symposium.
