We encourage authors to be creative in your participation. Please contact us with your proposals if you are considering one or more of the following activities:
- Organizing a Technical Session or Track. Authors are invited to consider ‘championing’ a particular topic of interest to you and your colleagues, and coordinating multiple submissions into a Special Session or Track. Sessions are approximately 90 minutes, consisting of presentations of submitted, peer-reviewed abstracts (and submitted papers). However, you are welcome to work with the Technical Program Committee to have a format that might include longer featured talks, paper submissions (meeting same deadlines as regular technical program) or shorter presentations with a panel discussion, and the option of no paper. Common sessions may be organized into an announced Technical Track with a sub-theme to reflect specialized topics.
- Organizing a Technical Demonstration or Workshop. Workshops are typically hands-on experiences where experts provide guidance on specific topics of interest to the OCEANS community. Acceptance of proposals for pre-conference Technical Demonstrations and Workshops is now open. More information regarding proposals for technical demonstrations and workshops will be posted soon.
*PLEASE make sure we know your availability to be a Session Chair and Abstract reviewer.
