Welcome to the participants in MTS/IEEE Oceans 2007 in Vancouver.
You have now joined us to explore the "Edge of Tomorrow". You will learn about BC's Neptune and Venus projects, which will usher in a new era in gathering data to understand the oceans. This Conference features a partnership of engineering / technology and scientific researchers. Vancouver, having a history of discovery and innovation in ocean systems and technology, is the home of many pioneers in these fields. We believe that our location at an international crossroads, equally distant from Europe and Asia, coupled with facilities and associated marine community and infrastructure provide the underpinning for a first class Oceans 2007.
There will be 5 keynote speakers, a Town Hall and approximately 300 papers.
The keynote speakers are;
On Tuesday, October 2nd commencing 08:15
On Wednesday, October 3rd commencing 08:15
The Oceans 2007 Town Hall is titled "Charting the Course for Ocean Science: Development and Execution of a National Ocean Research Priorities Plan and Implementation Strategy."
