The conference will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii on 16-20 September 2019. It is expected to attract 1,200 ocean observing scientists, managers, policy experts and users, from across seven continents.
IMOS Director Tim Moltmann is a member of the Sponsor Committee and has agreed to be Australia’s national representative. Membership of the Program Committee will be announced soon. The two previous OceanObs events (in 1999 and 2009) were held in Europe, and it is exciting to see this one being held in the Pacific region. The IMOS community is very well placed to make a real splash at OceanObs’19.
