InterRidge a pour but de promouvoir les travaux de recherche internationaux et interdisciplinaires sur les dorsales océaniques, en créant une communauté de chercheurs à l'échelle du Globe, en planifiant et en coordonnant de nouveaux programmes scientifiques qu'aucune communauté nationale ne pourrait réaliser seule, en échangeant des informations scientifiques, et en partageant nouvelles technologies et moyens de recherche. InterRidge offre à la communauté internationale des chercheurs travaillant sur les dorsales océaniques un forum et une voie reconnue, par laquelle informer le public, les scientifiques et les gouvernements sur les découvertes et les défis concernant les dorsales océaniques.

Call for submissions for the InterRidge News

InterRidge News is published annually by the InterRidge Office. The next - 23rd Volume shall be published in November 2017. Our newsletter contains brief research articles, the world ridge cruise schedule, updates from the InterRidge Working Groups and from our National Correspondents, and a calendar of upcoming meetings of interest to the InterRidge community. InterRidge News is intended for the rapid publication of preliminary results and cruise reports that do not appear in other publications.

The next AGU Fall Meeting

The next AGU Fall Meeting (American Geophysical Union) will be held on 11-15 December 2017 in New Orleans (Louisiana, USA) at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
The abstract submission is now open, the deadline is on 2nd August, 2017 (23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT).

The next InterRidge Steering Committee meeting

The InterRidge Steering Committee is an assembly of representatives from the Principal and Regular Member Nations of InterRidge. Principal Member Countries have two voting representatives while Regular Member Countries have one. Each Corresponding Member Country has a national correspondent who is welcome as observer at the annual Steering Committee meeting. Working Group Leaders are also invited at the meetings to report on their activity.

InterRidge Cruise Bursaries

InterRidge supports Cruise Bursaries to help early career ridge-crest scientists to participate in mid-ocean ridge research cruises. Bursaries are awarded for travel and subsistence costs required to join the cruise. We invite graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to apply.

Call for proposals for InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program 2017

The InterRidge Office is pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. As part of InterRidge’s mission to promote international, collaborative, and interdisciplinary studies of oceanic spreading centers, we invite proposals for InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowships of up to 5000 US$ each.

Call for proposals of new InterRidge Working Groups

InterRidge plays a major role in triggering ridge-related science through its Working Groups (WG). Such WGs are appointed for a limited time on specific ridge-related scientific topics. The InterRidge Office is pleased to announce a call for proposals of new InterRidge Working Groups.

New InterRidge Coordinator

Dear InterRidge members,

My name is Kamil Szafrański and I am the new coordinator of our program. In close cooperation with the program co-chairs Jérôme Dyment and Nadine Le Bris, I will coordinate the InterRidge activities and I will be your contact person until the IR Office stays in France.

The new InterRidge Office

The InterRidge office has recently relocated from Beijing to Paris. The Office is hosted by the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (see www.ipgp.fr) and is led by two co-chairs Jérôme Dyment (IPGP) and Nadine Le Bris (Université Pierre et Marie Curie - UPMC). The coordinator is Kamil Szafrański.
