Upcoming Seminars, Conferences and Workshops
- Alaska Marine Science Symposium, January 16-20, 2012. This
symposium provides a forum for marine scientists and local
communities to present information on the
changing marine environment in Alaska, provided a venue for BOEM’s Alaska OCS Region’s
environmental studies research for the Arctic and Bering Seas, and
provides a forum for the Alaska OCS Region’s scientists and Principal
Investigators to communicate with other
researchers who are conducting similar scientific studies within the
Alaska OCS or adjoining areas of the Alaska marine ecosystem.
- Outer Continental Shelf Scientific Committee Meeting, February 8-9, 2012.
This meeting will be an orientation for new OCS SC members who were appointed
September 29, 2011. In June of this year, eleven members retired from the
Committee and one member declined his reappointment, leaving only three original
members. This meeting will be held in the Herndon, Virginia, area, and will
serve as a venue to introduce the newest members to the ESP and meet
headquarters and regional staff.
- 5th International Symposium on Deep Sea Corals, April 2-7, 2012.
This symposium brings together scientists, resource managers, students, and
policymakers from around the world who are actively involved in research and
management of deep-sea corals and other deep-sea habitats. Greg Boland will
present information as an invited keynote speaker on management applications of
science from Environmental Studies Programs projects and will discuss
implementation of regulatory policy and the adaptive management of avoidance
criteria over time.
- 2012 NOSB Finals Competition, April 19-22, 2012. The Consortium for
Ocean Leadership, representing leading oceanographic institutions universities
and aquaria, manages a national academic competition for high schools on topics
related to the study of the oceans — the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB®).
The NOSB is a nationally recognized and highly acclaimed high school academic
competition that provides a forum for talented students to test their knowledge
of the marine sciences including biology, chemistry, physics, and geology. The
NOSB was created in 1998 in honor of the International Year of the Ocean and,
since its inception, the competition has grown to include
25 regional competition locations with 300 schools and over 2,000 students
