EXPLORING THE CRETACEOUS GREENHOUSE THROUGH SCIENTIFIC DRILLING
15-17 April 2013; London, UK
This workshop is being convened with the specific goal of instigating new oceanic and continental drilling legs designed to further our understanding of Cretaceous oceans, how circulation was driven, the factors that led to ocean acidification and different degrees of deoxygenation, and the impact of these conditions on life at the surface of the ocean and at depth.
Canadian applicants should contact Stuart Robinson to apply by 1 November 2012.
21-23 April 2013; Tokyo, Japan
The international workshop CHIKYU+10 invites researchers to discuss priority projects for Chikyu's next decade of exploration. Thematic discussions will highlight accomplishments of completed Chikyu Integrated Ocean Drilling Program expeditions, current Chikyu deep riser proposals, new ideas to be submitted as white papers, and inspiring keynote talks. The Steering Committee has identified five thematic as well as blue sky areas, for which short white papers will be accepted during January 2013. Travel support for the workshop is under discussion by JAMSTEC, and other national and consortium IODP sponsors. Registration, applications for funding and submission of white papers will open on 7 January 2013. CHIKYU+10 will emphasize participation by early career researchers. The final workshop agenda will be published by 1 March 2013.
DEEP-SEA RECORD OF MEDITERRANEAN MESSINIAN EVENTS (DREAM)
5-8 May 2013; Brisighella (Ravenna), Italy
This ECORD/ICDP MagellanPlus Workshop Series Program will gather together three generations of scientists to identify drill sites in the Mediterranean Sea that would test enduring hypotheses concerning the cause, nature, timing and consequences of a recent, rapid, extreme environmental event, the Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC).

INTEGRATED SOUTHERN OCEAN LATITUDINAL TRANSECTS (ISOLAT)
23-25 September 2013; University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
This three day workshop will bring together members of the palaeo-data and climate modelling communities to define scientific questions and targets for long coring to investigate sub-centennial to millennial variability of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). The aim is to assess the Southern Ocean’s role in rapid climate change and global biogeochemical cycles.
Applicants should direct their enquiries and applications to Ian Hall (Hall@cardiff.ac.uk) by May 24, 2013.
CORK CONNECTIONS @ IODP 1027
2 December 2012: San Francisco, USA
This workshop provides a forum for participants to discuss interdisciplinary opportunities that would be enabled by extending power and communications/data transmission from the NEPTUNE network to CORKs at IODP 1027 deep-sea site on the eastern flank of the Juan de Fuca Ridge - a remote and dynamic ocean environment.
ENDEAVOUR HYDROTHERMAL SYSTEMS
1 December 2012: San Francisco, USA
This workshop will provide an overview of the NEPTUNE Canada installation to date, describe opportunities for coordination, summarize current research results, and present future expansion plans.
DRILLING AN ACTIVE HYDROTHERMAL SYSTEM OF A SUBMARINE INTRAOCEANIC ARC VOLCANO
15-17 November 2012; Lisbon, Portugal
MagellanPlus workshop (by Wolfgang Bach and Cornel de Ronde) with the aim of preparing a proposal for IODP to drill into an active hydrothermal system hosted by a submarine intraoceanic arc volcano.
OCEAN OBSERVATORY WORKSHOP
13-14 November 2012; Halifax, Canada
The workshop, co-sponsored by Dalhousie University and Ocean Networks Canada, will provide researchers and students with hands-on training in accessing and visualizing data from the NEPTUNE Canada and VENUS undersea networks.
SOUTHWEST PACIFIC OCEAN IODP WORKSHOP
9-11 October 2012; Sydney, Australia
This workshop, hosted by IODP-MI and ANZIC, will identify the leading scientific ideas, hypotheses and questions for the Southwest Pacific Ocean that are pressing and require ocean drilling.
RECORDS OF GEOHAZARDS AND MONSOONAL CHANGES IN THE NORTHERN BAY OF BENGAL
8-10 October 2012; Bremen, Germany
MagellanPlus workshop (by Volkhard Spiess, Tilmann Schwenk and Herrman- Rudolf Kudrass) with the aim of optimising an existing proposal for drilling the geohazard and paleoclimate history in the Gulf of Bengal.
OBSERVATORIES IN SCIENTIFIC OCEAN DRILLING
10-11 September 2012; Houston, Texas
Workshop supported by IODP-MI and the Consortium for Ocean Leadership to educate scientists on the state of the art in observatory science, to explore possible applications of new technologies, to discuss sensor and data needs for addressing fundamental problems, and to discuss strategies for proposing and maintaining long-term observatory experiments.
COORDINATED SCIENTIFIC DRILLING IN THE BEAUFORT SEA: ADDRESSING PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE CHANGES IN ARCTIC TERRESTRIAL AND MARINE SYSTEMS
12-15 February 2012; Kananaskis, Alberta
Workshop funded by IODP-MI, IODP-Canada, ICDP-Canada and Natural Resources Canada to bring together proponents of IODP and ICDP proposals and members of the community having an interest in modern or paleo-studies of the Beaufort Sea region.
