  • The Singing Network

    The Singing Network was established in October 2014 at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN), St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, by Professor Ki Adams and Dr. Andrea Rose along with a steering committee of Memorial University faculty members in music, education and ethnomusicology.

    The Singing Network is the starting point for creating and building a MUN-provincial-national-international network of individuals and organizations interested in singing and song: scholars, performing artists, educators, students, as well as professional and community-based musicians organizations and associations. The network generates and produces a series of voice-singing-choral events ranging from workshops, seminars, master-classes, performances, dialogues, the formation of new ensembles, and a biennial international Symposium on Singing and Song.

    The projects of The Singing Network are designed to engage individuals and organizations from varied contexts and disciplines. Each of these projects involves collaboration and partnerships with local, national and international colleagues. The international Symposium on Singing and Song, in addition to local, MUN-community based projects, serves to mobilize knowledge, expertise and resources in support of musical, cultural social, health and wellbeing, and educational contexts.

    We understand the powerful impact of singing in our communities and aim to stimulate and provide programs and experiences for the sustainable development and innovation of singing and use of the voice in all contexts. The Singing Network is committed to working with multi-disciplinary communities toward the realization of the potential of singing and song in our lives.

    The Singing Network is supported by Memorial University School of Music and Faculty of Education, The Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music, and the MUN Office of Public Engagement.

    Marine and freshwater are essential components of the earth's hydrosphere and their protection has been one of the most critical and challenging tasks for all the involved researchers, engineers and decision makers at a global scale. Within a changing global context, effective protection and management of water environments demand continuously improved knowledge and technologies, sound decisions and practices, and benign legal and socio-economic environments. The iMFE 2014 provided a unique international platform for exchange of ideas and experiences amongst researchers, practitioners and regulators in the field. The conference was organized jointly by the 2014 Atlantic Symposium of the Canadian Association on Water Quality, the 2014 Annual General Meeting and 30th Anniversary Celebration of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering Newfoundland and Labrador Section, the 2014 Annual Conference of the International Society for Environmental Information Sciences, and the 2nd International Conference of Coastal Biotechnology of the Chinese Society of Marine Biotechnology and Chinese Academy of Sciences. This two and half day event was packed with 23 informative sessions, more than 60 oral presentations, and 15 poster exhibitions. Over 100 participants from 9 countries attended the conference to discuss and appreciate of various aspects involved in the protection of freshwater and marine environments as well as sustainable development of natural resources (water, oil & gas, mineral, etc.).

    The iMFE 2014 conference was able to provide a unique platform for exchange of ideas and experiences amongst decision-makers, managers, researchers and academics from different areas of water environmental protection; to provide a communication forum for scientists and engineers to discuss and appreciate of various aspects involved in the protection of freshwater and marine environments as well as sustainable development of natural resources in coastal areas and oceans, particularly under harsh environmental conditions; and to foster an integrative understanding of water and the environment as well as exploring sound engineering solutions. The wealth of information exchanged at this conference will be of great benefit to all involved with marine and freshwater protection problems. It is also expected to help achieve the following long-term goals: to extend the research network to a national and then an international level; and to help develop long-term research collaborations on water management and sustainable development, especially in harsh environment.

    The conference proceedings, as shown below, has a total of 48 papers that cover the following areas:

    • Climate Change, Energy Systems and Emission Reduction
    • Environmental and Marine Biotechnology
    • Environmental Modeling, Risk Assessment and Decision Making
    • Marine Oil Spill Response and Countermeasures
    • Marine Resource Management and Sustainable Development
    • Ocean Observation and Pollution Mitigation
    • Oil Spill Environmental Forensics and Chemical Fingerprinting
    • Persistent and Emerging Contaminants
    • Subsurface Contamination and Remediation
    • Water and Wastewater Treatment
    • Water Management in Harsh and Arctic Environments
    • Water Safety and Public Health
    • Watersheds, Wetlands and Estuaries Management
    This proceedings is devoted to help refine future strategies for effective management of the world’s marine and fresh waters by the summary of recent scientific research on the management of water quality through model- and technology-based investigations and case studies. In summary, all papers represent some of the latest and most promising research results in the field of marine and freshwater quality management. We believe that this proceedings will inspire further research and benefit practice along the same lines. Finally, we thank all the authors for their worthy contributions and the reviewers for their precious time and efforts to help ensure the high caliber of quality.
