The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) network began its construction phase in September 2009.
During the first project year we are conducting science community workshops to introduce ocean scientists, educators, and the broader science community to the full scope of the OOI network design and capabilities.
All participants in the OOI Science Community Workshop are invited to present a poster on one of the following topics:
– OOI Design, Instrumentation, and Science: Posters given by OOI scientists and engineers to highlight aspects of the OOI construction and the core scientific instrumentation that will be a part of it.
– Observatory Sensor Technology: Posters should focus on instruments and platforms (e.g., gliders, profilers) using technologies at the forefront of observing system science, including technology already being deployed around the world and technology in development.
– Scientific studies and ongoing research at/near ocean observatories: Posters should focus on data being collected and utilized at sites of common interest to observatory science.
– Scientific Projects using the OOI: Posters should focus on ideas and innovations for projects and proposals using OOI sensors and infrastructure. These ideas can serve as a forum for generating discussion with OOI scientists, NSF Program Managers, and other community members.
– Education and the OOI: Posters should focus on ideas and plans to use the OOI as a means to engage educators and the public using long-term, near-real time data.
– Ocean Modeling and Observing System Simulation Experiments: Posters should focus on modeling and OSSE experiments and how scientists can build on them for future observatory research.
– Maximum poster size is 42″ by 42″.
– Poster title and authors must be submitted by April 8, 2010
– A short abstract (300 word maximum, no figures) describing the poster must be submitted by April 16, 2010 for inclusion in the workshop webpage and materials. Abstracts should be submitted by email to lbrasseur [at] oceanleadership [dot] org in word format.
– An electronic form of the poster (*.pdf) should be submitted by May 3, 2010 for inclusion in the final workshop webpage.
– At least 1 poster co-author should be available during the poster session for at least ½ hour.
