1. Atmospheric Processes
This session addresses observations and modelling of ship emissions to air and their impact upon the environment. Presentations are encouraged that address the direct and indirect effects of ships upon atmospheric gases and particle loading/composition as well as atmospheric deposition in the environment.
Tom Bell, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK
Volker Matthias, Institute of Coastal Research, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Germany
2. Marine Processes
This session addresses the emissions of materials from ships to seawater, and the consequences for chemical and biological processes in the water column. This includes for example deposition of material from smokestack emissions; scrubber effluents; leaching from antifouling paints; and other direct discharges to the water column.
David Turner, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Eric Ytreberg, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden
This session addresses observations and modelling of ship emissions of underwater noise, its propagation and impacts on marine life. Studies investigating surface noise from shipping and its impacts are also welcome.
Jukka-Pekka Jalkanen, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Finland
Peter Sigray, Swedish Defence Research Agency and Stockholm University, Sweden
4. Socioeconomic Aspects and Policies
Shipping activities creates employment and economic activities in a number of industries spanning from merchant shipping, fisheries, tourism cruises to recreational boating activities. Papers which explore both the formal economic and social impacts and the externalities on the environment (water, air, coastal land-use planning, health) of these activities are invited to present their findings.
Changing patterns of maritime activities also have trade-offs especially in the coastal zone, where investments in harbours and habitation patterns are influenced by competitive private and public economic decisions. Papers that can shed some light on the impact of these decisions are very welcome.

5. Assessments of integrated effects on the environment
Shipping influences the environment in many ways. This session focus on effects from shipping on the marine ecosystems, terrestrial ecosystems, human health, commercial activities and/or climate. Methods and integrated effects from more holistic assessments, and spatiotemporal distributions, are of interest. In addition, how these assessments can be used and linked to policy measures with environmental indicators are of relevance.
Eva-Lotta Sundblad, Swedish Institute for Marine Environment, Sweden
Jana Moldanová, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, Sweden
The sessions will consist of a number of oral presentations, 15 minutes each including discussion.
6. Poster session on all above topics
The Poster session will cover all the topics of sessions 1-5. As an exception, submissions for topics not covered by the sessions above can be accepted.
