FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
 
International Scientific Forum - Conference “Bien Dong 2017”
Science for Blue Growth In the South China Sea 
12-14 September 2017, Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa, Viet Nam
 
 
Hosted and organized by: Institute of Oceanography,
                                          Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology
 
Bien Dong is one of the world’s richest marine biodiversity marginal seas, holding some one third of the entire world's marine species. Bien Dong is high abundant and diverse in marine resources, and also extremely significant in a geopolitical sense. However, Bien Dong is being challenged in enormous environmental and resource issues, which are transboundary, spreadingly impacting from the coast to the open ocean. Thus it has been increasingly attracting research interests not only from the countries surrounding the Bien Dong, which are depending largely upon its natural resources, but also from countries from the other parts of the world.
During its 95 years of development, in cooperation with Vietnamese and foreign partners, the Institute of Oceanography has carried out series of investigations and researches and achieved significant knowledge on Bien Dong oceanography, biology, environment and resources, making remarkable contribution to sustainable marine development and conservation of biodiversity and environment in Bien Dong.
The Scientific Conference “Bien Dong” was first organized in 2000, followed by the second in 2002, and then repeated every five years. The conferences were aimed to providing chances for syntheses and presenting scientific reasearch, places for marine managers and scientists to meet and discuss concerned themes in marine science and environment problems, and to promote cooperation on marine science in this region. The Scientific Conference “Bien Dong” beginned to extend to a broader international scientific and non-scientific audiences since 2007.
On the occasion of its 95th anniversary (14/09/1922 – 14/09/2017), the Institute of Oceanography, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology is going to organize the fifth International Scientific Forum-Conference "Bien Dong 2017", to review the research results and achievement on Bien Dong over the last five years, advancing marine scientific knowledge and promoting international cooperation toward a blue economy in this region.
The Forum-Conference includes two main parts, that are one and a half day of Conference; and one day of Forum.
Objectives:
-       To synthesis, present, and exchange the results and achievement in marine research on Bien Dong over the time.
-       To provide a platform - an academic environment for Vietnamese and international managers, scientists and enterprises to discuss, exchange and share experience, information and ideas on research cooperation and technology application for sustainable marine economic management and development;
-       To promote international cooperation on marine science toward a sustainable blue development in Bien Dong;
 
Conference Sessions
-       Marine Biodiversity and Resources
-       Marine Biology and Aquaculture
-       Natural Hazards and Environmental Risks
-       Oceanographic Processes and Marine Engineering

INTRODUCTION 
Bien Dong (the South China Sea) is one of the world’s richest marine biodiversity marginal seas, high abundant and diverse in marine resources, and extremely significant in a geopolitical sense. However, Bien Dong is being challenged in enormous environmental and resource issues, which are transboundary, spreadingly impacting from the coast to the open ocean. Thus it has been increasingly attracting research interests not only from the countries surrounding Bien Dong, which are depending largely upon its natural resources, but also from countries from other parts of the world.
During its 95 years of development, with cooperation of Vietnamese and foreign partners, the Institute of Oceanography has carried out series of scientific investigations and researches, achieved significant knowledge on Bien Dong, making remarkable contribution to sustainable development and conservation of biodiversity and environment in Bien Dong.
The Scientific Conference “Bien Dong” was first organized in 2000, followed by the second in 2002, and then repeated every five years. The conferences were aimed to providing chances for syntheses and presenting scientific reasearch, places for marine managers and scientists to meet and discuss concerned themes in marine science and environment problems, and to promote cooperation on marine science in this region. The Scientific Conference “Bien Dong” beginned to extend to a broader international scientific and non-scientific audiences since 2007.
On the occasion of its 95th anniversary (14/09/1922 – 14/09/2017), the Institute of Oceanography, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology is going to organize the International Scientific Conference & Forum “Bien Dong 2017: Science for Blue Growth in the South China Sea” in order to review the scientific research results and achievement on Bien Dong over the last five years, advance marine scientific knowledge and promote international cooperation toward a blue economy in this region.

NHA TRANG AT A GLANCE   
Nha Trang is a coastal city of Khanh Hoa province with a population of about 330,000. Considered Vietnam’s most famous seaside resort-town, Nha Trang attracts tourists for not only its stunningly pristine beaches, moderate marine climate, but also the urban atmosphere of a young tourist city. Nha Trang Bay has consistently maintained its position as one of the most beautiful bays of the world, covering the area of 405 kmwith many large and small beautiful islands and coral reefs.
With many universities and research institutes, Nha Trang has become a center for training and scientific research of Southern Central Viet Nam.
Nha Trang is also a key transport crossroad, easily connected to other cities within and outside Viet Nam by Cam Ranh airport, as well as by bus and trains. Hotels of international standard and Vietnamese guesthouses are avalaible here with the best seafood speciality for you.
