OCEANS 2023 highlights operational oceanography, which is pivotal to the missions of these organizations and others along the gulf coast – where research is integrated into missions to make them more efficient or accurate, less dangerous or time-intensive. As such, we have added an Operational Oceanography technical track, along with nine others to reflect the wide range of activity in the Gulf of Mexico and along the coast.
OCEANS 2023 will offer a high-traffic exhibit hall, training based on identified needs of students and young professionals, lively plenaries and town halls, and technical demonstrations. In addition, our committee is using this opportunity to engage the local community through a Beach Trash Art Contest and an Outreach Challenge for k-12 and community college students.
We hope you will join us for OCEANS 2023 in Biloxi and learn more about the exciting missions, programs, projects, and opportunities in the gulf coast region!
Sincerely, General Co-Chairs Laurie Jugan & Craig A. Peterson
