On November 1-2, 2013, at the Royal Hawaiian Resort in Honolulu, Schmidt Ocean Institute will hold its first research symposium. The theme will be: “Accelerating the Pace of Ocean Science Through Technological Advancement and Open Sharing of Information.”
The symposium will bring together our collaborators, advisers, and thought leaders from the United States and abroad to discuss how the latest technological innovations, globally expanding connectivity, and cultural shifts towards transparency and open sharing of research outcomes in ocean sciences can be best leveraged to accelerate our understanding of the oceans and catalyze meaningful change on a global scale.
While attendance at the symposium is by invitation only, we will be webcasting all sessions live. Please visit the webcast page for a schedule of those events and details on how to log in.
