INVITATION FOR UNIVERSITIES TO EXHIBIT AT MTS/IEEE OCEANS 2012 CONFERENCE
The Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society will be holding its Oceans 2012 Conference in Virginia Beach, Virginia on October 14-19, 2012. The meeting focus will be ‘Harnessing the Power of the Ocean.’ For more information, click here.
Old Dominion University (ODU) is the Host University for this Conference and is working with the organizers of Oceans 2012 by encouraging universities to have a presence in both the exhibit area and by sponsoring students and faculty to attend. With an expected attendance of over 2,500 and an exhibition of hundreds of marine-related companies, as well as state and federal entities, Oceans 2012 will provide unique opportunities for universities to showcase their research and educational activities in coastal engineering, marine sciences and marine technologies, especially in the area of ocean observing, and predicting.
If you are a university, please join ODU in the University Row in the Exhibit Hall. More information can be found here. MTS is offering a university discounted rate per booth of $2,600 and your institution will receive two additional full conference registrations valued at $1,200.
APPLY TO ATTEND “OBSERVATORIES IN SCIENTIFIC OCEAN DRILLING” WORKSHOP
The International Ocean Discovery Program’s science plan identifies observatories as an important platform to push forward scientific boundaries in Earth science. Time-series data from observatories help us address dynamics of physical, chemical, geophysical, and biological systems and foster cross-disciplinary science.
A workshop is being convened to educate scientists on the state of the art in observatory science, to explore possible applications of new technologies, to discuss sensor and data needs for addressing fundamental problems, and to discuss strategies for proposing and maintaining long-term observatory experiments. The workshop will be held September 10-12, 2012, in Houston, Texas. For more information, please see the workshop web page.
Full and partial travel support is available for a limited number of scientists. Early career researchers and graduate students are encouraged to apply. To apply, please send a short statement of interest and CV by May 15, 2012. United States applicants should contact Brandon Dugan (firstname.lastname@example.org). International applicants from Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) member countries should contact Heinrich Villinger (email@example.com).
