This multidisciplinary symposium has the ambition to constitute a high level scientific meeting, but also to allow exchanges between scientists, managers and users involved in maritime issues. The following topics, among others, will be addressed:
- the growing needs and pressures exerted on the marine environment,
- the urgent need of sea management : data, tools, stakeholders, management devices, etc.
the question of assessment will be central: how assess needs and pressures? how assess management?
